    I've just sold all my :43: gear and am feeling a bit nostalgic already. Gear sold included a GH2 with 14-42, 14-45, 14-140 Pany lenses, Oly 9-18 and Samyang 7.5.

    I'm a bit fickle and like change of gear (GAS) and don't have any complaints about :43: - just found I was using it less than my other gear.

    I'm currently using a Fuji X-E1 in its place and have 18-55, 55-200, 35 F1.4 and 60 macro. The sold gear including an X100 has funded about 70% of the changeover.

    I've been a member here since March 2010 and posted over 1700 times and have enjoyed my activity here. The :43: system still has a good future as the new GX7 and E-P5 show.

    I wish you 'good light' in your photography and in life in general. Thanks to all who have helped and traded with me.

    I'm still with Amin over on Serious Compacts and FujiXspot and will still pop in here from time to time.

    I call you that because that's what I called you when I was a student at Corpus Christi.
    do you still wield that mean bass guitar?

    What, no parting shots at :43: on your way out the door? :wink:

    Thanks for stopping in and giving us a farewell, Bill. The Fuji system is intriguing...I'm excited to see what the Panasonic-Fuji partnership brings to :43:. Happy shooting, and please do drop by and share your wisdom from time to time.

    Thanks once again. Lefty the bass sees little action these days - fingers are stiffening up.
