    Hi,
    My name is Steve and while I've been into M43 cameras for about 2 years now, this is first online forum i've ever joined.
    I have a website for my M43 photography at Fast Primes - Home
    I hope you like some of the images on display there and I look forward to contributing on this forum and seeing the work of other like minded photographers who enjoy this small and exciting format.

    regards to all.

    Warm welcome Steve. Lovely website and a lot of excellent photos. From all those primes, which one do you like best? I see you working your way toward the 60mm macro and the 75mm primes ;)

    Thank you for the welcome.. Tough choice, I find I use the 14mm the most as the focal length seems right for the type of shots I do, but it's the 25mm summilux that has that look/bokeh I really love.
    Having said that, the 20mm seems perfect (focal length wise) for street photography, and the 45 for days I want to be further back from what I'm shooting to ensure the shots are candid.

    Did I mention I have trouble making decisions :)

    Alrite. I got it .... :) You loved them all equally ;)

    I reckon you should pick some of your photos and post them in various genres to get broader audiences ;)

    G'day Bhupinder, thanks for the reply. Glad you liked the photos on the website. I'm keen to see what others on the forum are shooting as well. Being in a semi-rural area I know of no other MFT photographers in my area, so always interested to connect with others, albeit online here.

    From your photos, I saw you have been to Melbourne :) Next time if you have a chance to stop-by, just give me or Bhupinder a yell. We could catch-up for a coffee in the cbd :wink:

    I did in fact grow up in Melbourne, and still have family there so I try to get down at least once a year. I try to avoid winter, but should be down in late Spring,so yeah, maybe a chance to catch up.
    I notice you guys have OMD's. Very nice. I've considered swapping from my two GF1's to a single OMD but I can't find buyers for the GF1's. I went as low as $180ea on them without luck, but they are too nice a camera to give away for any less, so I've decided to keep them and put the OMD idea out of my head. The 2 bodies are actually handy when using primes - less changing.

    You guys have websites or Flickr I can check out ?

    Thanks RamblinR,

    Sunshine coast...nice. I used to live in Buderim some years ago now, but found employment difficult to come by and moved here to find work.
    I'll go check out your flickr site now.
