Howdy,
Only found you guys yesterday, thought I would say a big hello!

I have had my E-1 for about 12 months now, it was at the final round of discount at Warehouse Express when I nabbed it. Have nothing but good things to say about the ergonimics etc It just feels good to use. Plus some stunning pics at "only" 5Mp :-)

I got myself a Hong Kong four-thirds to OM adapter and regularly have my 28mm and 50mm OMZ glass hanging off the front - great for getting shallow DOF and some okey dokey bokeh.

I also have an OM-10 which is my cheap and cheerful travel wide-angle option. (OM-2n's are so cheap now mmmmmmmm - I need one of those!). Oh yeah can't forget the Mju-II for twenty quid - loaded with Ilford XP2 - 2 quid for Dev & scan to Cd in Tesco's - bargain!. Reverse engineered Digital photography at it's best!

I've recently got some wireless flash triggers so keep an eye out for some gallery pics lit from some odd angles.

Have been volunteered to be friend's son's lighting tech for his college assignment - night-time skateboarders - should be fun!

Any Networking / Linux / Gimp problems I might be of some help.

Ta for now

Welcome Ian, and there was me thinking I bagged the last E1 from Warehouse Express! Watched it like a hawk before jumping and very pleased with its performance :)

Forgot to add that I have been given the green light for a 11-22mm lens.
At last I might get some "big" pics without having to walk backwards into the road to take them :D
