    Hi everyone,

    I just picked up the EP-1 not long ago. There were no pancake kits around here so I got it with the zoom lens. I'm coming from a Nikon D80 (still loving and using the D80) but decided to get something a tad more convenient when I don't want to carry a huge bag of gear around. After toying with the EP-1 for a few days I find that this lens isn't fulfilling my shooting needs and so after doing some creeping on this forum I found the option of CCTV lenses with the C Mount Adapter. I just ordered them on eBay and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival.

    Aside from the lens itself not fulfilling me I find that I am completely in love with the EP-1 even though sometimes I miss the viewfinder. Before I purchased the EP-1 I actually introduced my cousin to the Panasonic GF-1 and since she bought it she has been saying extremely good things about it. I find that in Canada the price for the GF-1 is a tad on the rich side and since I am buying a secondary camera I don't find that I feel justified paying that amount for it and thus I chose the EP-1. I don't however regret this decision at all as I find that the EP-1 produces amazing pictures too.

    Hopefully with my registration here I'll have a chance to learn more and thus improve my photographic skills.
