I'm back...

I was a member and owner of an EM1 a few years ago, but sold up for a big heavy FF Nikon - I still have it, but want something smaller and lighter.
So, I have come back and am on the hunt for a used EM1 and grip to go with the 14-140 lens I still have, and expect to be bombarding you with questions, especially about the Panasonic 100-400, which may be my next lens (despite the repair issues I have already read about)
I'll do my best to catch up, and hopefully will soon be posting a few pictures too, but don't get too excited about that..!

Re: I'm back...

Thank you Graham!
I went with full frame as at that time I was doing a fair bit of low light /high iso stuff and needed all the help I could get.. However, the lure of something smaller sees me coming back - hopefully I'll be able to add something, however little to the forum!

Hello Steve, welcome back.

If memory serves it was me you sold your E-M1 to If it makes you feel any better, it is still in regular use, albeit as a number 2 body alongside a Mark II, and still working fine.

All the best ... John
