I have just joined, (sinse I crashed the bike on Sunday I am temporarilly under house arrest,) I'm a press snapper and last year I broke the Nikons I used to use so in a desperate fit grabbed a couple of cheap E1'S and Bobbs your uncle I was an olympus user, I've sinse backed them up with an oM1 AND 2N CAMERAS, But they are actually better than the d200's I was using, and I am very happy with the 10x8's they knock out.

In fact folks the only drawback to being an Olympus user is the pro solitude, so with that I type out a VERY BIG HELLO, and would love any photo studio/photoshop tricks any one has, (Big Black and White Nuts wellcome.

I am about to hop around on a walking stick to shoot the tube strike, I dont know what I miss more, the use of me left leg or my bike, I am just going to have a look at your stuff but am still trying to get my profile pic up.

Anyhow good to hear you like the stuff, its why i like the E1 more than the other models, Its a tough little cookie and suits my work.

:-) Cheers
