    Hi everyone,

    I joined shortly after I received my OM-D E-M1. I was previously carrying around a Canon 7D and a bunch of lenses and began to get tired of the weight and the encumbrance of the large equipment.

    My wife bought a Panasonic G2 kit with a couple of lenses and I always liked its size, quality and speed. So this year I finally decided to sell my Canon gear and purchase the Olympus. I love the camera and take it with me far more often than I ever did with the Canon.

    Some of the other forums out there were a bit hostile. This forum seems a lot friendlier.

    I've been on various forums for years - mostly telecom related.

    Anyway, I'm around and if you have any questions let me know. I'll help as best as I can.

    All the best...

    Welcome to the line of 'former' SLR shooters. I shot Canon for many years, but love the smaller & lighter m4/3 kit I've been using for the past year.

    Thanks! Yup. We were lucky enough to be down for only two and a half days. Some people are still stuck!
    The iced over trees, although tragic, were absolutely stunning!

    Welcome aboard fortwodriver!

    That E-M1 should serve you well in your now FRIGID cold climate! Been there done that! (spent lots of time on Yonge Street = BRRRR......)

    Looking forward to seeing some of your photographs soon.

    Cheers!
