Hello from Germany

Hi, i'm Michael from Germany. Found you via photostartsheet.com.

I started with photography ca. 40 years ago with a Voigtländer Bessa and switched to the OM 1 a few years later. Since then i really love these magnificient little machines (OM 1, OM 2, OM 2n) and now i'm back with the EM 1. Before that i tried a few other brands, but all of them were to heavy.

I love to take landscapes, cityscapes and so on. Above all i use the sigma 30 and 60 mm. Wonderful little lenses with really great performance.

And...i love to travel to Scotland

Hi and welcome. Ironically I'm going back to film with the OMs!

Re: Hello from Germany

I started with the OM-40 and then the 4Ti. Now its an E-M5 which feels like home from home. A warm welcome to the forum.

Hi there Michael!

Welcome to our friendly forum. If there is anything you need to know, just ask, and if there isn't please post some images for us to see.

Cheers,

Ralph.

Re: Hello from Germany

And a willkommen from me. You have found a nice friendly forum. My first serious camera was an OM1n in 1980. I still love the feel of older cameras like this even though my OM1n died many years ago. I still have a couple of Zuikos though.

Re: Hello from Germany

Hi Michael.

On BBC Radio 4 there's a wonderful series 'Germany: Memories of a Nation':

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04dwbwz

It's presented by the director of the British Museum - Neil MacGregor.

I'm recording all the programmes as my wife is German (from Koenigsberg!) and there's a lot about East Prussia.

When I've downloaded them all, I'll send you a copy if you're interested. A nice thing about them is that Neil MacGregor speaks very clearly and deliberately, so the programmes would be particularly good for a non native English speaker.

Jim
