    Psikat New to Mu-43

    Hey all,

    New here and relatively new to photography, having very recently made the leap from iPhoneography (and aim-and-shoot compacts).
    My OM-D set arrived a couple of days ago along with a couple of prime lenses (20mm and 45mm) and I have been busy with deciphering the manual. (My experience with Panamoz was very positive BTW.)
    Shooting should start soon and I am counting on this forum and my Dummies Guide to fill the countless gaps in my knowledge.

    Best regards, Hawk

    Newbie here myself.

    Hey. I'm new here myself. I am a prior Canon full-frame user who is now enjoying the lightweight gear and stunning image quality that MFT affords. It's a nice change of pace to be able to actually lift a camera bag with 4 lenses in it! :smile:

    Well, you've come to the right place! I'm quite new to photography in general and this site has been a godsend. I've learnt a lot on here!

    The lightweight aspect is great too, unless you start looking at adapted lenses. I recently obtained a russian Zenit Helios lens, which feels like it was made out of a recycled battle tank. Carrying 4-5 lenses like that becomes a major pain!:rofl:
