It should be reasonably easy to work out from my user name that I am called Ken Thomas. Im 69 years of age, widowed and live in Stourbridge in the UK. My first digital SLR was an E-10 and from their I moved onto Four Thirds - accumulating a variety of bodies and some lovely glass. I've been looking at the EM-5 for quite a while and a week ago started watching a virtually new silver version on eBay. Their were very few bids so I kept this close to my chest and hoped not many were watching. Needless to say I won it this morning and as the seller was 20 miles away rushed over to collect it. It came with the 12-50mm f/3.6-6.3 and an HLD-6 all in perfect condition and boxed. I only checked the number of shutter actuations after I played with for most of the afternoon, at which time it was 1608. Looking at the bidding on eBay after the auction I found that my bid of UK£1000.01 had beaten the underbidder by just that one penny!! So if there is such a thing as a happy bunny, I am one. I've been playing cameras since I was 14 and for some years in the late 60s and early 70s worked in photographic retail. Amongst the cameras I've owned over the years (in chronological order as much as by old brain will allow) are an Halina A!; Interplan A; Zenit-C (very early one with all legends in cyrillic script); Miranda DR; Leica IIIb & Reid IIIa; a pair of Nikkormat FT2s (one black & one chrome). I started digital with a Ricoh RDC-5300 before selling three of the kids to finance the E-10 with a power grip!! I'm really looking forward to using the EM-5 and am hoping that I'm not too disappointed with focusing speed on my Four Thirds glass - I have some wonderful lenses that I'd hate to part with. In reality I'll just keep my E-3 as a second body if necessary. Anyway, it's nice to join your community. Regards to all Ken.
