Hi All - Again

As the title suggests, I have come back to the fold. I'm very sorry for moving away and using a certain other make of camera gear for a few years, and I promise it won't happen again

Although I was here before as tlove (and I'm still showing as a member), I have - despite my best efforts over the last two weeks - been unsuccessful at getting it resurrected. So here I am again like a bad penny but with a different user name.

I have to say it's good to be back using Olympus gear again, and I'm very glad this forum is still going - there is an awful lot of petty squabbling and rubbish talked out there in the name of photography, but this is the one place I have always found to be friendly, welcoming and a 'rubbish-free zone'.

I look forward to posting some images once I get going again and look forward to 'meeting' you all!

Thea

Re: Hi All - Again

Hi welcome back.

Now that you have used other makes, It would be nice to hear your views as compared to the Oly stuff we all get here.

P.S. No brands bashing allowed.

Re: Hi All - Again

Certainly won't be any bashing from me as it's all down to personal choice

I started out with Oly gear and having used other makes along the way - while focusing speed etc. may have been better at one time - I think Oly have come on in leaps and bounds in matching focus speed, image quality (Oly glass has always been tops with me) etc. but at non-silly prices and lightness/compactness, which is top priority for me now.

Welcome back from me too. Just out of interest which other brands did you try out?

Re: Hi All - Again

Went over to Canon (7D, 1DX, 5DIII, 7DII and 'L' glass). Much as I loved them, I could no longer carry around a dslr and heavy lens and kit bag.
