    For those that may be interested, I have just found a site that is UK based and focussed and is specific to Olympus gear both 4/3rds and Mu43.

    Yes. I came across that when I found mu43. But I thought it was a bit sleepy.

    I also checked out MFT forum in Fourthirds-user.com and decided that mu43 was better. And besides, fourthirds-user.com already had an Ian!

    Relevant

    Hi Ian,

    Sleepy it may appear but it is small, primarily targetted at UK based Olympus users and has some very relevant posts so certainly of interest to me and offers a site that is targeting my needs and wants.:2thumbs:

    I can see it not being very relevant for none UK citizens, but we have an increasing band of UK based Olympus users some on here who may be interested and it offers the chance to communicate people near you for potential meets and swops/sales.

    It has a sister site too that is a bit more international but still UK based run by the same guy.

    Might well have to sign up for that one. Whilst I like this forum for it's photos from around the world and the helpfulness of the users, it does seem very US centric in terms of the FOR SALE is almost all CONUS (had to look that up), the offers and prices are mostly USD, and also that the US posters assume that the rest of the world will know all of the two letter abbreviations for the US states.

    Sorry, that is something that has been engrained into us by the USPS. (United States Postal Service)

    Is USPS a subsidiary of the NSA?

    Worth a look guys and very UK centric so a pleasant change, the administrators are very stringent and do not tolerate trolls or silly non relevant posts.

    They stick strictly to 4/3rd and Mu43 formats and Olympus so a great place for Oly users.

    Umm, I think that this link and our posts about about the USPS and NSA are exactly the posts that Ian does not care for.

    Whoops! Don't mention the lounge. And don't look at my new signature either.
