Hello everyone. My love for photography was handed down from my dad. He gave me an Olympus OM1 for my high school graduation present back in 1978 and for the next several years that camera taught me how to take pictures. Fast forward a few decades and I have been a photographer for a local newspaper here for several years now so I'm extremely lucky to have an outlet for many of my pictures. (Although not so lucky when I hate all the pictures I've taken for a particular story but still have to cough one up. Which wouldn't be necessarily bad except for the fact that I have to put my name on it.) Been using the usual tools of the trade, the big old DSLR along with the requisite array of hefty glass, but after reading up on the fairly recent advancements of the mirrorless system, the OMD E5 specifically, and I'm about ready to shed a big chunk of the hefty poundage of my trade I've been lugging around for so long. And the sweet icing on this cake is having that nostalgic feel and form of my beloved OM1 back in my hands again. I'm looking forward to joining the micro-thirds party!
