    I'm from Russia. Well, Ukraine originally. Or the Soviet Union at the time. It's complicated...

    Anyways, glad to meet you here :)

    Although, I haven't yet bought a m4/3, I might do that soon.
    Actually, I'm thinking about Samsung NX10, which isn't really a m4/3, but there's little difference. Except the price :)

    Hope to learn more about this camera here before taking the plunge.

    Welcome aboard! Hopefully, you'll enjoy this forum enough and end up buying a M4/3! Actually, the NX10 looks pretty good so far too. Too bad they are not out here in the US yet.

    Thanks everybody for the warm welcome!

    Don, I'm from Voronezh. Not that far away from Tula :)

    Armanius, yeah, I was surprised to see that too. Usually US gets most products first and at a lower price. Not the case this time. Weird, but very satisfying :)

    Hello Vitaly !

    Great to have someone from Russia here !
    My better half (= wife) is also from Russia, and really close from where you are.
    Our family lives in Mazeika, a very small village close to the border between Voronezh and Lipetsk "oblast".
    I was in Voronezh last December. Nice town !

    Futher, we have family members in Kaluga, Lipetsk, Griazi, and ........ Irkutsk :biggrin:

    C U there,

    privet Vitaliy,
    i would wait a little longer to see what the NX10 can offer
    as there is not a big lens selection, unless there will be adapters available to be able to use other lenses with it. it seems like its going to be proprietary samsung mount but i could be wrong :)

    Welcome, Vitaly. Can't claim Russian connections, but I did study the language in high school in the '60's. Too bad no cyrillic characters here...
