    I reside in the S.E. corner of British Columbia nestled against the western edge of the Rockies. Been a photography nut for going on 50 years and shot with all sorts of film cameras, advanced point and shoots and DSLR's as well. Even did the darkroom thing until digital came along. Downsized from the bulkiness of the DSLR back to a long zoom point and shoot and was never happy with the soft focus, especially at longer zoom levels so I purchased an OM-D E M10 Mk II several months ago with a 12 - 42 and the 75 - 300. I spend a lot of time with a backpack on so this seems to suit me very well. And big shout out to @Bob T@Bob T for recommending this site. Hope to learn lots. Some recent photos ....enjoy.

    Welcome! I have the very same camera and it continues to surprise me every day. You may enjoy watching some of the YouTube videos by Rob Trek on your camera to get a better understanding of the menus and features.
