    My name is James. 28 year old father of 2 girls. I got into photography 6 years ago after taking a intro course in college and have been hooked ever since. I shoot Canon SLR's and DSLR's mainly but having this new oly I have not touched the them in a few weeks:biggrin: I also love collecting old cameras and lenses, I have a modest but growing collection despite my wife:wink:

    About once a month I turn my bathroom into a darkroom and try my hand at BW printing and developing. I find it very rewarding and interesting, just wish I had more time to do it.

    I found this forum through researching my new E-PL1. You guys were a big help, especially in regards to using adapted legacy lenses. So, I thought I could help add to the great information already here.

    See ya out there!

    Hi Bob!

    I now can count three Olympus users that I know in slc. You, me and my uncle (who I convinced to get a epl1 kit) come to think of it I have never seen anyone in public with a pen yet.

    There is a member on here named nickswan he lives in slc too. He contacted me through this forum also. We meetup and take photos and talk shop quite frequently. We have become pretty good friends. Unfortunately he had to sell his gx1 recently. We should do a slc group meetup.

    I am currently shooting a epm1 with a vf2. Oly 17, 45 and a panny 20. Plus a handful of legacy lenses.

    I live near Murray park.

    Always great to meet another oly user!
