    My first non box camera was a folding Perlette (made by Olympus I believe) my father brought back from WWll. In College, I purchased a Yashica EE. from 1978 to 2002, I shot a Konica T outfit. I have had several digital point and shoots, but Have not been as interested in Photography as I used to be, which is too bad, since I am now retired and have more time to spend on the hobby.

    I got to thinking my mediocre equipment was bumming me out. With the Konicas, I often doubted myself, but never my equipment. With that in mind, I have recently purchased a silver E-pm1. I remeber admiring the original Pens of the 1960's/ Being of a certain age. I like retro looks and have put a black Aki Asahi cover on it. In addition to the 14-42 kit lens, I have ordered an Olympus 49-150 lens and a VF-2 EVF. Bying refurb, used and on sale held the total price down.

    I have been reading the forums for about a week now and am very impressed with the information, as well as the knowledge and friendliness of the members.

    I too am of a 'certain' age. Don't much care about camera looks however. It is the function of the Oly m4/3 cameras that I love. I shoot more these days then I ever did with my DSLRs and enjoy it much more. I look forward to seeing some of your images. :thumbup:
