Hi everyone

I've been a member at the Four-Thirds User forum for quite a while but as this group is more Olympus-based (obviously!) I thought I should check this out as well

I've been an Olympus user since 1978 when I started off with an OM-10, and I've since amassed far too many OM bodies and lenses, so it was natural progression that took me to an E-620 and now an OM-D as of a couple of weeks ago. I like the E-620 but when the OM-D was announced I thought that would be the ideal camera. I resisted for a year or so thinking I couldn't justify it but eventually heart over-ruled head, and I don't regret the decision. I shall probably sell the E-620 kit, but will keep the 12-60 which is a marvellous lens and seems to work pretty well on the OM-D.

I live in the Yorkshire Dales and my usual subject for the camera is the lovely landscape hereabouts.

I look forward to getting to know you all

Cheers
Richard

Re: Checking in!

Welcome. When I decided to go digital (from OM40/OM4Ti) the choice was the E-620 or E-M5 for the overall size and form factor. The E-M5 ticked many more boxes (advanced SD card, OLED screen, 5 way IBIS, better live view, etc) and looked the most promising for the future inspite of the good glass for four thirds. So I fully appreciate your decision to keep the 12-60.

Re: Checking in!

Thanks for the welcomes . I bought my E-620 when it was a new release and before the advent of the OM-D, as it ticked most of the boxes at the time. But when the OM-D not only dropped in price recently but was (briefly and presumably wrongly) priced at Amazon.co.uk at around £925 I could no longer resist. I wanted to try some video too so that clinched it. It's a complex beast and taking a while to explore but I'm liking the results so far. I do some artwork copying and printing for some local artists so the optical quality of the 12-60 is a must, but that said the little 12-50 is a good all-rounder - and the splash resistance of the camera and lens is handy around here!
