Hi all. I've been passing this location for a few weeks now- looking through the windows, so to speak, and thought I'd come in a get comfortable and join!
I'm a former film guy- turned digital with a point and shoot in '04, became frustrated with holding the thing in front of me and after a year or so bought a E-500. Now I want to upgrade- especially for image stabilization.
I have not really made up my mind- but am impressed with with the offerings from Panasonic and Olympus- the EVF being a big plus to me.
Also impressed with the picture gallery of this site- the black and white and the urban stuff in particular; makes some of the other sites look bland by comparison.
Hope it's okay that I don't have mft gear yet. I know I will have questions and will appreciate recommendations and advice.
Thanks a lot!

fredsh, it is absolutely OK that you don't have :43: gear yet! I am very glad that you "joined up" rather than waiting. I did the same thing. Initially read many reviews, etc., and then found my way here where I was offered a great deal of helpful information.

Ask away!:2thumbs: There are quite a few very knowledgeable photographers involved here.
