Post Thanks for having me

Hi everyone.

Thank you for allowing me to join this community.

I am an enthusiast photographer who recently moved from a full frame Nikon system to the exciting world of Micro 4/3. the reason for this was mainly having discovered that due to the size weight of my gear it stayed at home more often than not. So whilst it was amazing stuff it was becoming a dust collecting system that I could not justify having and - moreover - kept me for actually practicing this passion of mine.

My "weapon of choice" for this change was an EM5 Mk II and so far in my arsenal I have a 12-40 f/2.8 PRO, a 40-150 f/2.8 PRO and a 45mm f/1.8.
This gear I find is more than enough to ease me into the M4/3 system and build up / trade up as I explore the possibilities and refine my taste.

Looking forward to learning from everyone and perhaps share some knowledge myself.

By the way - Happy 2017!
