View Full Version : Hi from Nottinghamshire

Just a short intro to myself.

Many years ago I was a keen (very amateur)photographer with an OM2n kit but I lost my way in the hobby and more or less stopped taking any photos except video.

However a recent holiday onboard the QM2 for our 40th wedding anniversary persuaded me that I ought to take some photos as memento's of the trip and I ended up buying the E-510 with the 2 kit lenses.

And well pleased I am with the results. Hopefully this has rekindled my interests on a permanent basis; we shall see :)

I have just been and unearthed my OM2n and amazingly the batteries still work after 10 years. How amazing is that!

The OM2n lens are Both Sigma: a 35-70 and an 80 to 200. I will have to see about getting an adapter.

Some photos from the trip

Hi, StAubyns and welcome.

Glad you like the 510 and like the pics you've posted.

Amazed the batteries worked in your OM2 after 10 years, some OM bodies would have drained them in 10 days! :D
