    Hi,
    Just want to introduce my self.

    I’m a German who is living in Sweden since over 30 years.

    I started my photo hobby in the mitt 70th with a Fujica ST901 and switch later to Canon. An A1 was the first one, which I replaced later by an F1n.
    My first digital camera was an Olympus C-5050 Zoom 2003. The first DSLR was a 20D which replaced the F1n. Sold all my FD lenses as well.
    On my way to my present OMD I used a 40D and a 5DII and 5 ‘L’ lenses.
    After having used the OMD for a couple of month, I decided that the m4/3 system is good enough for my hobby and I sold all my Canon stuff and never looked back.

    My present equipment is:
    Olympus OM-D E-M5
    Olympus FL-600R
    Olympus HLD-6

    Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ
    Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R
    Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm 1:1.4 H-X 25E
    Panasonic Lumix G 14mm 1:2.5 ASPH H-H014

    Legacy lenses
    Canon FDn 200mm f/2.8 Lens (will be sold)
    Canon FDn 50mm f/1.4 Lens (will be sold)
    Olympus E.Zuiko Auto-T 100mm f/2.8
    Olympus E.Zuiko Auto-T 100mm f/2.8 (silver nose) (will be sold, or the black nose)
    Olympus G.Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.4
    Olympus G.Zuiko Auto-W 35mm f/2.8 (silver nose) (will be sold)
    Olympus OM-1 (will be sold)
    Olympus OM-2 (will besold)
    Olympus Zuiko MC Auto-Macro 50mm f/3.5
    Olympus Zuiko MC Auto-T 200mm f/4.0

    Canon FD to M43 Mount Adapter with Tripod Mount (will be sold)
    Canon FD to M43 Mount Adapter (will be sold)
    Olympus OM to M43 Mount Adapter

    The legacy lenses are from Swedish sale sites which I bought in 2 kits. All lenses where in mint condition with !! Olympus Skylight filters !!.

    So maybe you can help me to decide which of the OM 100mm to sell, the silver – or black nose?

    That's quite the gear collection! Being new to m43 myself I'll have to admit to being a bit jealous :wink:

    Thanks North20

    You see, I started only with the OMD and the kit lens and the P25.

    Only took me a couple of weeks to decide to sell all my Canon stuff which gave me the bucks for investing in some new gear ( only spend half of the money I got for the Canon stuff).

    The Olympus legacy lenses where bought in 2 kits, one with a OM-2 and the OM 35/2.8 and the OM 100/2.8 silver nose for just 100$, the other kit with an OM-2 with the OM 50macro, OM 50/1.4, OM 100/2.8 black nose and the OM 200/4.0 for only 200$.

    So still some money left for the Oly 45/1.8......:smile:
