    I'm new on here and scoping out this site as a possible alternative to DPR which seems 100% OM-D obsessed right now. I've posted on DPR for many years but am getting a bit fed up with it. Plus I like the breakdown of sub-forums on here meaning I know where to go to get lens talk, Oly or Pannie body talk etc.

    I've been a m 4/3 user for 2 years now, running a GH1, G3, E-P2 and GX1 at present alongside my trusty old Sony DSLRs (2 a700s).

    I love m 4/3 but am being priced out a bit with the OM-D and the new Pannie 'pro' lenses just about to come out. Still, the GX1 is great and I'm ejoying using it.

    Anyone else from Surrey?

    Looking forward to talking to you all!

    Hello and welcome Marco - you'll find the conversations here less heated than DPR.

    Welcome from Kent.

    I used to live in Camberley, Surrey. Does that count? :smile:

    Hi Marco, and welcome.

    A couple of bits:

    1) Still quite a lot of OMD talk here, too, but also lots of LENS talk (missing a bit from DPR), more pic samples, and some talk about photography in general.

    2) It's a bit friendlier over here, though DPR's improved since the (supposedly self-imposed?) banishment of him-who-shall-not-be-named, and his co-hort.

    3) Please post some sample shots with the GX1! Not enough going on with that nice little camera.

    Thanks. I will post some GX1 images, sure, no problem. Just been processing a set I shot at Brooklands museum actually (planes and cars) - nothing amazing from an artistic perspective, more of a test of the camera and getting to know the ergonomics exercise, but if people would like to see more GX1 shots I'm happy to oblige.
