Hello All,

Have been lurking around this forum for a week or so. Just discovered this forum when I sold most of my Olympus glass on eBay to finance my entry into the micro FT world.

I have not abandoned the standard FT system; I've just trimmed it to one body and two lenses for those situations where they excel: low light/action. Think grandfather: violin recitals/soccer matches, etc. It was just too much to carry with me on overseas trips and I've been watching developments in the mFT world for some time.

I have not done much with my new system. Will give it a workout in the next few weeks.

I expect it will be my normal/travel system. I bought into the Olympus micro FT system because of its low weight, small size, sharp/small Olympus and Panasonic (fast) glass. The final clincher for me was when Olympus introduced a pen camera body with the same sensor as my e=30

I am not a professional photographer and most of my photography is people and travel. I will share whenever I think I can contribute something worthwhile. However, I view myself mostly as a learner who values information/advice from those who operate far above my pedestrian level.

Welcome Tomas, and Hello from Scotland. I'm an early stage learner, but really enjoy m4/3 for the feeling of freedom I have found in it's use. The DSLR rarely makes it out of the house these days :eek:

All the best,

Colin

Was in Scotland 2x. Love Scotland and the people: a lot like Ireland (I have Irish ancestors) but with bigger mountains. Found the people very sympatico, just like Celts everywhere.

I play the GHB here in WNY with a grade 5 band. Started on the pipes at age 62. I love playing the pipes. Am with a very understanding pipe major--a very rare breed that.

The pipes and photography. What else do you need?

Glad you had a good time over here, and I love the pipes too, but I'm a fiddler myself. Radio Scotland has a great pipe music show on Sundays, which I always listen to. Here's the most recent:

Thanks for the link.

The College of Piping from Glasgow held a workshop over here in WNY last summer. I attended: world champion grade 1 pipers were the instructors. Wonderful experience.
