    Hey guys so glad I found this forum. I have been a photographer for over 20 years and was getting bored with my DSLR along with the fact that I hated taking it anywhere because it was so heavy. I started looking for an alternative and that's where I find myself today a new user of the Olympus OM-D E M5. I haven't had much chance to work with it yet but I am looking forward to getting the 45mm lens I just purchased:)
    Anyway my name is Jackie and I live in the beautiful state of Utah.

    Hi Jackie,

    You will find many here who have a similar history and just got sick of all of the weight and bulk.

    Welcome to (in my opinion) the best camera/system on the planet.

    The 45 is a great lens. What other lenses do you have or plan to get Jackie?

    Welcome and well done making the switch.
    The O-MD is responsible for more people switching from DSLRs than any other M43 body - so you've made a great choice
    Great system and a great forum here.
