    Hi All,

    Just wanted to introduce myself quickly before I start posting. I am new to photography as a serious pursuit and picked up my first "good" camera last summer to start taking better photos of travel, hobbies, friends and family. I settled on a Panasonic GF2 that I've been slowly learning to wield better ever since. This year I decided rather than move up to a DSLR I would invest deeper in MFT format and spent the money on glass for my GF2 instead :D

    So, I decided to join here to hopefully pick up some tips, feedback, and stay abreast of updates to the MFT format & technology while I learn.

    -Jay

    Welcome aboard, Jay. You'll find all you're looking for and more right here. Smart move to invest in more glass before upgrading your camera. Put your gear in your signature... and post often!

    Thanks :)

    I updated my signature, figure that should help folks with feedback and advice if they know what I have to work with!

    Welcome to the board. The GF2 is a fun (and under appreciated camera). Be sure and post some shots for us to see. :biggrin:

    Welcome aboard. Hunterdon County is beautiful! Used to live just east of there in Branchburg. I miss Flemington, Lambertville, and so many other nice places...

    That's the best beginners kit I've ever seen! LOL. Since you've got all your lenses covered, go and pursue your photographic endeavors!

    Hey Welcome to the hang out. It's a nice place to chill here with everyone.

    Far out you got the lens thing right!. I've been with mu43 for over two years and I've only got 2 native lenses!

    Just noticed in your sig that you've mentioned 'Oly 14-45mm' I'm pretty sure only panny has the 14-45mm unless there's been a new development.

    hope to see you regularly!

    best,

    Whoops, thanks... that should have been 14-42mm!

    Thanks all. I'm a big believer in good tools - lets me know I'm only limited by my skills. Now I'm focusing on getting better behind the camera :)
