    After much research, I have just taken the plunge into m4/3, ordering an Oly OM-D E-M5 with M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm kit lens and the Lumix G 20mm F1.7. I'm sure more lenses will follow.

    All my four-thirds gear will be on eBay soon.

    I use DxO as my primary RAW developer, do most editing in Sagelight with PhotoLine for any required layer/action work. I use ACDSee 6 as a digital asset manager.

    My interest in photography began back in the '70s when I acquired an Oly OM-2, later an OM-4. When digital arrived, I tried a couple of point-and-shoots before adopting Olympus Evolts -- E-420 and E-620.

    Since my retirement from a career in broadcast news and education, I've been devoting a lot more time to my photography hobby, including experimenting with HDR.

    Thanks for this forum -- a real help to those of us just beginning to use m4/3.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Please tell me all about the E-M5 since I need to convince myself to buy one instead of a E-PL5 or E-P3! :biggrin:

    Ahoy Bob, welcome aboard. You're off to a very good start with your initial purchase. And please be factual, you don't want to offend any escarpment folks.
