    Hi everyone. I just picked up an E-PL2 a few months ago (moving "up" from a superzoom) and I'm still a VERY rank amateur.

    Welcome to the :43: world!

    Care to share any more detail about where you're located or what type of shots you're using for E-PL2 for?

    HI! I'm in Pittsburgh, PA. I do take a lot of shots of the skyline and things, but also some landscapes and random nature shots. I'm kind of feeling my way around.

    I'm still learning lightroom (slow going) and dont usually like too much post-production, but here's one I like from outside PNC Park:
    7448199588_a2a610a9de_c.

    It's not up to the standards of most of what I see here, but I like it. :)

    This is with the Panasonic 14mm, which is limiting in its "width" to me, but challenging (in a good way). I also have (along with the kit lens) the Panasonic 45-200, but he and I are still having trouble getting along. I also picked up some yardsale bargains, a Yashica 50mm 2.0 and an older (60s?) Konica 57mm 1.4. I have an easier time using the Yashica but I get the feeling that the Konica is a better lens with practice. Still new to this MF thing.

    That image is great! I love the Black and Yellow. I realize that's a Bucs shot, but as a huge Steelers fan that looks really nice.

    I haven't used the P14, but that's a nice little lens - I chose to pick up the P20 first, but the 14 is still on my list.

    The Konica 57/1.4 is probably my favorite adapted lens...other than my <i>next</i> lens, that is (I've got a bit of a GAS problem.)

    Thanks everyone. The P20 was first on MY list too, but I found a great deal in the 14, and frankly I couldn't justify sinking 400 bucks into the 20 just yet.

    The Maz statue is kind of special to me . . . my dad was actually at the Game 7 where we beat the Yankees with that FR (and he LOVES to tell everyone, haha).

    Welcome! I'm from Plum and now live near Erie. Great shot, particularly in a year when the Pirates are playing well. :biggrin:

    Oh really? Neat. I lived on Mt. Washington for four years, but just this past Winter moved out of town to Beaver.

    My daughter went to Geneva College - so I'm familiar with the area.
