Chris- welcome!

After 20+ years I ditched my Pentax gear for the EM1 Mk 2 and it was the best thing I ever did. Needs patience with the menu system though. This forum is great for advice and info.

Interesting name.....did you by any chance once own or maybe still have, a Honda CX500?

Hi Chris and welcome from another very recent member. Good to see you've passed the 'magic' 6 posts, which opens up new 'freedoms'.

I've just been browsing your Cordoba and Seville photos, which brought back happy memories of my own visit to those places. I'm also just getting to grips with the E-M1 Mk2 and have found many useful tips from browsing this site.

Re: New Member - new to Olympus

Hello and welcome, any problems just ask and someone other than me will come along and sort your problem for you. I am still learning but if I see something I know about I will assist, removing lens cap. Switching on etc.

Re: New Member - new to Olympus

I am honestly planning to sell my Nikon camera as well, as I envy my cousin for having an OM-D E-M10 MARK III.

Yes the 750 is a great camera and as for the 850 sounds superb apart from the weight. It will be interesting to see how the new Sony fits in the scheme of things of the mirrorless group.?[
