    I'm been a member and occasional poster over the road at Serious Compacts, where I've learned a lot. Nice to see some familiar names here.
    I've had a LX5 for the last couple of years, which has been such a joy to use it's inspired me to take more photos in the last two years than in the previous twenty.
    So, I thought I'd take it a step further, seeing the bargain prices around at the moment I've bought a GX1, then got carried away and added three lenses, 14mm, 20mm and 45-175. Oh well. committed now may as well add the viewfinder!
    I spend a lot of time cycling and camping, expect many of my posts to follow the same theme. Though part of the idea of a new camera was to extend this. Also expect some pretty simple questions! Though I've found many of the answers here already.

    You really have some great pictures on Flickr. I look forward to see what you can get out of the GX1.

    Welcome....great group of photographers here! I've learned a great deal reading and posting in this group. I hang out over at DP Challenge too, but that group is not as embracing for micro 4/3 as this group is. I also owned a Panasonic LX3 for awhile, and loved that camera. I have the GH2 now, and learning video too.

    Welcome! I think you will find that there are quite a few cyclists here as well, myself included.

    A big thank you for the welcome, I feel right at home!
    Today's my first chance to go out and play with the new camera, typically the weather has changed for the worse, so a slight change of plan.
