    Hello :smile:

    I've finally transitioned form "long time loiterer" to actual member!

    The primary reason for this is that I'm soon to be a brand new :43: user. Having just sold my old Canon 350d and some very nice glass that went with it, I've ordered a replacement. With much research and frantic worrying (or perhaps much worrying and frantic research?), I've gone for an Olympus OM-D with 12-50mm kit which is ordered and (very slowly) on it's way to me. I would (of course) very much like to have a couple of nice fixed lenses too, but they are having to remain on the want list for now.

    In the end there were several things that led me to this decision - but mostly it was not wanting (and just not doing) the lugging around of the Canon and lenses which ultimately meant I just wasn't taking any pictures.

    So here I am, waiting for my delivery.....

    Hi Justin...your Avitar reminds me of the British Museum...what a place to spend a day or more in and I have been there so many times. London is just full of great Museums, culture and includes some pretty modern architecture!

    It is the British Museum! It's one of my favourite shots, but is very low res as I took it on my very first digital camera - a Sony DSC with about 3 Mp.

    Welcome to the forum, Justin!

    The preorder and shipping transit wait times are excruciating, but it is pretty awesome when the package actually arrives! :2thumbs:

    Hooray! It's finally arrived. Unfortunately I don't really have time to play with it (of course I mean study the user manual and use it very seriously) right now as I have to go to work, but I'm happy anyway.
