Hi all

Terry Haworth - new member from the small village of Camerton, near Workington in Cumbria. Retired teacher of maths and IT and don't miss teaching one bit!!!

Just joined the group having come across it accidentally via another site. Have had an e410 for nearly a year now as a first intro to DSLR. Have the two kit lens' and have since invested in the 70-300 telephoto lens.

Am really enjoying the e system but do wonder if I would have been wiser going for the e510 with IS. My wife has a Panasonic Lumix with IS and it looks useful.

Might just wait to see what the new addition to the Olympus family produces next year.

I look forward to keeping in touch with the group.

cheers

Terry

Thanks for the welcome. Have had more time to look around and found some very useful advice already. Might have a go at the challenges as well.
