    Greetings to you all!

    I'm a 22 year old boy/guy/man, whatever you want to call it, from Gothenburg in Sweden. After longing for several months, I got a E-PL1 for christmas which I'm now trying to learn. I've always envied the people running around with their SLR:s taking great photos, and when I realized that I had use of a great camera in school during my education (Industrial Design Engineering) I thought that it was time to start looking for this in a more serious way. But I quickly realized that I wouldn't be carrying around a large dSLR everywhere, but I still wanted the IQ, so the m4/3 quickly became the best solution. So far I only got the 14-42mm kit-lens, but I'm looking for a Oly 17/2,8 or a Pana 20/1,7, there will soon be a WTB in the market!

    Anyway, this is a great forum, I stumbled in here searching for feedback of the above mentioned lenses, and have already found a tonne of information, so I will stay here, I love forums that have such a high density of knowledge. Whenever I feel proud enough to show some shots I will, until then I will look around and be amazed!

    See you around!

    Hi fellow Swede - I am Swedish on my Dad's side. Name was originally Ljunggren, but became Johngren when my grandfather came through Ellis Island. Have been to Sweden once.

    Anyway, welcome. I love m4/3 after years as a Nikon user. I find no limitations with this format and won't be going back to DSLR. I think you'll have a great time.

    I saw the title and had to look to see if there were some sexy photos of a Hasselblad. A bit disappointed, but welcome regardless ;)
