    Hi,

    and what a great forum! I'm one of the many DSLR users out there thinking that the micro four thirds system can replace my big DSLR.
    I have a Canon 40D, which I think is a great camera but is too big for many situations. So i bought an Olympus EP-1 kit with standard zoom lens, 20mm 1.7 and the FL36R flash to give the M43 system a fair test.
    If it works out, I'm selling my Canon gear.
    So far I'm really enjoing the EP-1 experience. I don't like the shutter lag when using a flash and AF-speed is slow compared to a 40D, but for the price and size it's really good. Looking forward to try some MF lenses at some point, and also finally get to try tilt/shift photography for a reasonable price!

    Welcome indeed! and congratulations on your choice - that's a very capable little kit...

    Please be sure to take a look at our Quick Start forum, I'd appreciate any feedback on the E-P2 (and 1) configuration videos... they're just a prompt for further discussion and sharing our experience.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Velkommen og lykke til:smile:

    I sold my Canon 450d to get the PEN, have not regretted it.

    And you are right, this really is a great forum.
