    Hi all,

    I recently sold all my Pentax gear and went to an Olympus E-M1 for lighter, more manageable cameras & lenses. I am very impressed and looking forward to a future with micro four thirds and to reading some interesting posts on this site.

    Welcome!

    I have a lovely 55mm f/1.8 Super Takumar that I "re-purposed" from an old Pentax film SLR of mine (circa early 1960s...) which still sees a fair amount of use on my mu 4/3 kit.

    Hey. Many former Pentaxians here. I know the EM5 reminds me of my old MX.
