    Hello All;
    I have been lurking about your sight now for several weeks and it seems that there are many fine people here. Also I have found the site a great help for me in choosing my first m4/3 camera, Oly ep-3 on order at B&H.
    A little about myself, I have been a hobbyist photographer since the early 80's useing all kinds of film cameras and digital cameras for the past few years. I have a love for my old Olympus Pen F that I still shoot on a regular basis. over the past few years I have gotten tired of lugging around dslr's and have come to settle on the m4/3 format. To be honest I never felt comfortable handling slr/dslr's. Smaller rangefinders and compact cameras seam to have fit me better over the years. Any how Im looking foward to my new purchase to arive, and haveing some nice conversations on this site.....Chris

    Chris, welcome! I'm originally from LI, and my parents still live there (Syosset). The E-P3 is a great choice!

    Welcome to a fellow Pen F fan! One of the main reasons I went into :43: was because the Olys were the same form factor as the good old Pen F, and I could use all my old lenses. Like you, I also prefer smaller compact RFs, and none of the DSLRs was really small enough.

    I am sure you will enjoy your new system. This forum is really great, lots of helpful, supportive and fun members.
