    Just checking in to say hello. New to the world of micro 4/3 and photography in general. Been wanted to get into photography for awhile now -- for work (i'm a freelance journalist) and as a hobby.

    Needed to step up from the blackberry camera/pocket point-and-shoot combo I had been using on assignments (easy to use/extremely portable) to something better. But wasn't quite ready to jump into the full-on dSLR cameras some of my photog colleagues use. When I found out about the micro 4/3 systems, it seemed like the perfect compromise.

    Picked up a Olympus EP-1 this week and just starting to play around.

    Hoping to learn more here about my new camera and hopefully how to take high-quality pictures to go along with my articles.

    Any help is appreciated and good to be aboard. Thanks.

    I am quite sure you picked the right system and the right place.
