    Hi everybody,
    My name is Robert and I live in Broome at the top of Western Australia. Like a lot of people before me I have decided to stop lurking and jump in.
    I got into M43 because I was sick of lugging a ton of gear on aircraft and living in a remote area I fly alot. So now the SLR gear just gathers dust as I have found that M43 does 90% of what I require.

    M43 Gear

    Lucky Penguin,
    I started with a GF-1 and 20mm f1.7. After I realized how great the format is I bought a G-1 with 14-45 and 45-200 zooms. Then when I discovered you could use old lenses I bought an E-PL1 for the in built stabilization. Now I am totally hooked on the format.

    Robert.

    Gordon,
    After 20 years in Broome I am looking forward to moving to the East coast so that I can enjoy four seasons instead of just two (Hot and wet or hot and dry). Yes you can have too much of a good thing.
