Re: at last an Olympus forum!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
I've uploaded a 'family friendly' selection of my photography (most of it isn't), so you can see what I get up to with my Olympus

Dave - I'm definitely not a subsea engineer so there are at least two of us out there then

I'll keep an eye on the forum as much as time allows and help folks out where I can

Re: at last an Olympus forum!

Yup, it really isn't that easy to find this place if the truth be told - you have to do a UK specific google search for 'Olympus Forum,' and even then it's half way down page three of the hits...

Welcome anyway, you'll get all the help you need here... or maybe you can help others!
