    I am very excited to enter the world of m4/3. Tomorrow morning, the brown santa will be bringing my OM-D. I'm a Canon convert, just sold my 7D, and still trying to sell off the rest of my lenses.

    I have my 25mm f1.4 sitting here and no body to use it with!

    Welcome from a fellow Seattlite! Looks like we did things in the same order. I got my 25mm 1.4 before th E-M5 arrived too. It's a great combination. I'd say I shoot with the 25 about 90% of the time. I predict you will love the set up!

    Ah thanks for the warm welcome, I posted a reply with pictures from my time in the Canon world, but I guess a moderator has to approve it. Soon!

    Welcome! A big Seattle contingent in here. I saw another guy with an OM-D at Pike Place a couple weekends ago. PL25 is my favorite lens, I too bought it before my GX1 arrived. Works great on both cameras, just ignore the occasional rattle-snake on the OM-D :wink:

    Welcome. I'm jealous, the OM-D is a sexy camera

    Sorry, it got picked up by an automatic spam catcher. False positive :frown:.

    Ah. Must be because I'm new :)

    Just got my OM-D

    Spent the past hour fiddling through settings. But I think it's ready to go!

    You guys could imagine my heart stopped when the UPS guy gave me this:

    Wow, looks like the boys at UPS had a good football game with your box. Hopefully your camera didn't take the brunt of that abuse.

    What made you decide to switch from Canon?

    What part of Seattle? I'm down in the south end (Columbia City).

    Everything survived, it almost crushed the camera, the crease on the olympus box was about 2cm away from the camera body, instead some manuals got bent.

    I'm in Renton.

    I wasn't using my 7D, and I layed in bed to think about what parts of the camera I liked most, and what I could do without. I landed on the OM-D, it does 110% of the things I used the 7D for, and 90% of the things that I didn't. Still having a hard time selling my Canon lenses though.

    Welcome to the board! I'm a little north of you.
    And that's a very scary dent on the box!
