Hello

Hello to you all.

I have been looking at his forum on an almost daily basis (sad I know!) for a few years so I thought it about time I joined, especially as it has provided me with one or two bargains. I bought my E-3 from Click29 about 3 years ago, using an E-500 (which I still have) prior to that.
I have just ventured into the world of m4/3 with a twin lens epl-5 kit (please tell me it was a bargain @ 399.99!!), which is going to be an interesting learning experience I am sure.

Andy

Re: Hello

Welcome Andy, :-) I hope you get some nice shots with your new m4/3 epl-5 kit. You won't be dissapointed in the images from your kit. Something I always thought about the olympus images is that they have soul. While the cankon images may be perfect and difficult to fault, there is still something missing which Olympus has.........Soul!! Enjoy!

Re: Hello

Hi Andy,

A warm welcome from me too, just don't mention "EC14" to me

I am sure you will enjoy using your newly purchased epl-5 kit.

Kind regards

Simon

Re: Hello

Welcome from me too glad you decided to jump in and post. We pretty much drove past you on the way back from Rowsley today. I'd say you got a good deal on your kit as RRP was ~£750 and Park Cameras even now are selling it for £469. Did you get it from Currys by any chance? they seem to be at £399.

Re: Hello

Thanks for the warm welcome people.
I did manage a little time to play over the weekend, nothing special but the light was quite nice.
Yes Phill, I did get it from Currys. They seem to have the best price for the twin lens kit and I was able to pick it up locally in Mansfield (they had two in stock tucked away in the back store)
