    Hi all guys,
    first of all...sorry for my poor english...but I'm Italian!!!
    My name is Felice, but you can call me Felix!
    I'm from Rome, Italy, and I'm joining this community because I've decided to try the MicroFourThird world, with a beautiful Olympus PEN E-PL2 with the kit lens.
    Basically I'm a sport photographer and actually I've a Canon EOS1DMkIV + EF70-200 2.8IIL, EF24-70 2.8L, EF17-40 4L and other big pieces of "L" glass.
    I made this choice because my wife "stole" my "daily camera" Canon G11...

    Thanks all,
    Bye,
    Felix

    Hi Felix
    Welcome to this wonderful and beautiful MFT forum . Italy is a beautiful country and Rome is on my must visit list . Its good to know that we have a sports photographer who supports MFT and EPL2 is a wonderful camera. Now u are used to high end Canon glass and I would suggest to try excellent native and adapted primes before u pass ur judgment on my beloved EPL2. Hope to see more of pics from ur camera.
    Cheers

    Hello guys,
    thanks all for your comments!
    Yes, now I'm using the best of Canon equipment, and they're absolutely fantastic, but I need something very light and portable! My E-PL2 has been an incredible discovery! Love my PEN.

    Thanks again,
    Felix.

    Ok Felix ...
    Now step two is to get Oly 45 mm 1.8 and PL 25 mm 1.4 or Nokton 25 mm .95 to to get the best out of ur EPL2 and let me tell u this little beast will surprise u upto ISO 1600..
    Cheers

    Yes, for sure!
    The lens you've mentioned are the real upgrade for my PEN. Regarding the ISO performances I have had very good result also at 3200iso...but in this case the RAW file is necessary.

    A little OffTopic, and just to complete my little introduction...if you want to see a flavour, take a look at my Flickr:

    ....if you have time and if you want!!!

    Thanks,
    Felix.

    Welcome aboard Felix. I'm a former news photog. You'll find µ4/3 a step up from the G11. (the 17-40 EF is an f/4)

    Thanks a lot!
    Yes, it's an f/4...my mistake in typing :smile:
    The G11 is a very good point and shoot, but the PEN is a very step up.

    Bye,
    Felix
