    Hi bros n sistas!

    My name is Kevin n im 25 this yr. I am glad to join this forum n hope to learn n contribute to this alr deep database.

    Im a leisure photog who likes to take almost everythin under the sun but my fav genre is travel photography which i had not any chance to do.

    I got into the m43 family last yr. Was using a 2nd hand canon 1ds mk2 for 2yrs and wanted to try out a smaller system that is light yet powerful to be my backup. Who would hav known that my backup system bacame my primary system. Fell in love with the colours, portability, more affordable lenses n looks so much so that i sold my whole canon set away to fund my m43 system. LOoking back, no regrets.

    Canon yes a great system but i simPly could not afford the lenses i want. My 1dsmk2, 24-70, 50 1.4 and 580 ex2 qas a product of eating white bread n drinking plain water (sorta) everyday to save up. I still wanted 85 1.2, 70-200 2.8II and a few white tele lenses... For that, even if i resort to eating grass, i could never afford.

    What m43 brought me was full of joy. When i sold off my canon set i could afford all the lenses i want. It s a compromise of having a smaller sensor compared to ff but the lenses r so much smaller n cheaper.

    I can say, finally, i ve found the system im comfortable with...

    Thats all for now folks. C u guys around b hope to make lasting friends! Mayb i can bunk in ur place when i travel ard the world one day! But u cant bunk in mine cos im still stayin wid mom n dad... My hse still under construction. Hehe.. But i ll hook u up with a nice place to stay in my state.

    To my bros n sis from malaysia n singapore too, yo yo yo!

    Cheers!
