    Hi, My name is Jordan(obviously) and I'm 24 and about to finish college next May.
    I found this site a few weeks ago when I was deciding whether or not to get a Micro Four Thirds camera. I was using a Digital Rebel XTi w/ Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 and Canon 55-250 for the past few years. But was hardly using anymore except on vacations, and those weren't that often.
    So I sold everything and my 430ex II, and bought a refurbished Olympus E-PL2 w/ the 14-42 kit lens. And I also ordered a JCPenney 28mm f/2.8 FD mount lens and an adaptor for it. Didn't know JCPenney made lenses, but for under $20 shipped I'll give it a shot. A nice starter kit, I'm still looking for deals on more FD mount lenses and others that I can get adaptors for. Also looking at getting one of the M4/3 primes currently available but haven't decided which one yet.
    Hope to learn and share a lot on this forum.

    Hello Jordan and welcome - you have discovered one of the attractions of :43: - being able to use so much legacy glass.

    Thanks for the welcome.
    I just got my E-PL2 in the mail today w/kit lens. Now I just need to get the school work out of the way so I can go out and use it.

    Since Alaska isn't connected we just consider it part of Canada.
