    Hi all.

    I live in Odense, Denmark.

    Happy to be a member of the m4/3 user base and now of this great site.

    I just got the Olympus E-PL1 with the kit lens, an Olympus FL-36R and I also have an Olympus Zuiko OM 100mm f/2.8 which I love playing around with.

    One of my first experiences with a manual lens:

    I have a lot to learn in regards to this manual world, but I think I will become addicted to using old manual lenses... it is SO much fun :biggrin:

    Welcome Henrik,

    The Hexanons have to be the best value manual lenses out there. I have the 200, 135, 57 and 40. The Oly 100mm is amazingly compact too. I gave mine to my sister years ago when I went digital - she won't give it back! You'll find a very supportive community here. Love your first shot - the look of wonder is precious!

    Hi Tom.

    Thank you.

    I am thinking about buying the Hexanon 24 f/2.8, 50 f/1.7 and perhaps a 135 f/3.2 if I fall in love with the 40mm f/1.8... seems like great lenses from what I can read and the pictures I see.

    Henrik,

    what a wonderful photograph. You hit the focus right on the eyes, perfect!
    There is so much impact in your shot, great!

    Thank you very much.

    This is one thing I find new when using a manual focus lens. I tend to place focus much more... shall we say "creative" instead of just relying on the center AF point of a camera. I love the way that using a manual focus lens makes me take my time and think and enjoy taking a picture more. With AF it's more just click - click - click :rofl:

    the manual lenses on my ep1 are my first choice , when i first got my ep1 last june i had no idea that i would learn to love manual focus, and that it would become my preferred mode of focus on the ep2 and gf1.

    welcome to the forum and enjoy that fine camera , [i want one ]
