I'm back...and I've been a naughty girl!

Hello everyone,

For various reasons I haven't been active on here for simply ages....I do try and look in regularly but time and life keep getting in the way and my iPhone takes such good photos that I've hardly used my Oly's recently

However, today I was walking past one of our local High Street buy/sell/exchange places when I was irresistibly drawn to something in the window which seemed to have a magnetic pull....

Five minutes later and with my purse considerably lighter, I walked away with a pristine Olympus Zuiko 18-180mm lens....oops!

I didn't mean to, honest!

Hope everyone's well and I look forward to contributing more in the future!

Janet

Good to see you back Janet. I had one of those and regretted selling it until I replaced it with a m4/3s equivalent.

Re: I'm back...and I've been a naughty girl!

Thanks! It feels good to be back and playing with my Oly again!

I've been working all day today but managed to grab a few shots at lunchtime.

My goodness, I'll have to eat my spinach if I'm going to lug this thing around all the time!

Just a few snaps...









On the whole I think I like this new lens, but if I'm going to use it regularly I'm really going to have to use my monopod.

I'm also going to have to brush up on uploading images because it's just taken me half an hour to figure out how to get the code from Flickr...my own fault for leaving it so long.

Now, time to look for an extra camera body????

Janet

A good selection, I particularly like No 2.
