    Ok, I can't get over how my thread title sounds like something a beauty contestant would say :biggrin: Anyway I'll make this brief. I'm a former DSLR user. Ditched it all to save my shoulders and back. Love my GF1 + 20mm. Eagerly waiting for the Oly 45mm f1.8 since most of my shots with DSLRs were candids and portraits. And hoping my soon to be wife will approve of the purchase after we tie the knot in January:rolleyes:

    Also a bit of a bagaholic, glam rock fan, and am enjoying the Mu-43 community quite a lot :2thumbs:

    Welcome, too, from a native of one of its 7,107 islands (low tide, of course)!

    Hala, what a way to start the marriage - a wedding gift for yourself! :2thumbs:

    Welcome from an Fil-Am/Amboy!

    Quick, get your toys before you are married! It is easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission!

    Welcome, kabayan! Look forward to seeing some photos from your GF1. You'll find that this is a great, friendly, supportive forum.

    Good advice, John. Or, take lots of great photos of your wife and her relatives with the GF1 to justify more purchases.

    LOL! Methinks I'll take those words of wisdom to heart:biggrin: Either that or I bribe her with a day of shopping.

    Thanks for the warm welcome folks!

    I just wish that Oly and Panasonic would have the same kind of presence that Canon has in the country.

    +1 on this. I have to order online or from small resellers just to get my Lumix fix here in Manila!
