    I'm a new micro 4/3rds user from New Hampshire. I've been shooting Sony/Canon DSLRs for a couple of years now. I bought an E-PL2 last week and decided to jump in with both feet. Right now I'm in the process of selling all of my DSLR gear! I really hope I don't regret selling my 7d!
    I am forcing myself to carry the Oly wherever I go. So many times I wished I had my camera, but I didn't want to carry a huge backpack with thousands of dollars of gear. That was the big reason for switching over.
    I have the 14-42 II, 40-15, and Panny 20 1.7. I may want to add a flash in the near future, but for now I'm just going out and taking pictures! Wish me luck!

    Welcome to the forum

    Welome aboard. Nice to have you with us. I switched fir the exact same reason, I've never looked back. I now have many more photo opportunities, and lots more fun.

    Cheers from just south of you in Rehoboth, Ma.


    PS. A few of us will be meeting in Boston Saturday morning for a photo walk / tour. If your interested let me know.

    Welcome to the m43 world!

    I'm also from Concord. Over a year ago, I purchased an Olympus E-P1 and was blown away the quality of the images which were much more pleasing than the highly regarded Nikon D700 that I had. Like you, I didn't want to lug around the beast, the D700. So, I sold the D700 and went all in with the m43 system and have never looked back. You won't regret it either.

    Good choice on the E-PL2. I got one in March and it has great ergonomics and the jpg's are wonderful.

    There is a ton of information here on mu-43.com and is an excellent resource to improve your skills.

    Be careful if you try legacy lenses on your E-PL2. This is because legacy lenses quickly become an obsession. You've been warned.

    Thanks for the offer. I have to decline this time because of my "honey-do" list, but I would love to attend in the future.

    I want to get familiar with the camera before I start looking into old lenses.

    I, too, came from DSLR, but the bulk really became a problem. Haven't used the thing since I got the E-PL1.
