Well, actually it wasn't happenstance that brought me here. It was booze. Seriously! Long story short, a few weeks ago I bought a Bower 8mm fisheye that was advertised as being a Canon mount BUT it turned out to be an Oly 4/3 mount instead. Yeah, I got suckered because the seller convinced me to send the $$$ via PayPal as a "gift" and ended up leaving me hung out to dry on the lens. Sooooo..... just last week I was drunken eBaying (come on, admit it - you have ALL done it at some point in your lives so don't judge me!!!) and I managed to win an auction for an E-PL1 w/o a lens for a smoking good price. Or at least my rum addled brain THOUGHT it was a good price. And now here I am, the proud owner of a :43: camera. Yippee!!! Next step: score a lens or two and start playing w/ the new camera. I figure it'll be a good addition to the line-up in order to fill the gap between the 50D and my cameraphone. In the meanwhile, I'll be scoping out the forum for info on :43: pancake lenses and adapters for classic manual lenses. If anyone has suggestions or pointers for a "dumb" 4/3 to :43: adapter (i.e.- an adapter w/o the electrical contacts that doesn't cost $50+ for it) then I am all ears. So yeah..... that's my story and I am stickin' to it!
