Hi from the flatlands!

I'm fairly new here, have now gone fully Olympus from Canon. Really great system, and it gives my back a rest!

Re: Hi from the flatlands!

Welcome!!
Yes, that's a common reason for moving from either Canon or Nikon ... You're back will thank you and as you probably realise already the Oly kit provides well in terms of image quality.

I'm at the other end from you, PB, near Wisbech.
As a further point of interest I first got interested in what the Olys could do when on a composite course in London with Aad Sommeling, hand held low light, so impressive!
