Smile Hello from East Anglia

Hi, I've just joined the forum as I have acquired my first Olympus camera. It's an Olympus E-PL2 which I realise is quite an old model. Up till now I've been using Canon DSLRs but they are a bit heavy to carry around. Hoping to find out more about the Olympus way of photography.

I'm sure you will not miss the size and weight of traditional DSLRs. I've never looked back since changing from Nikon and keep finding new advantages in the MFT system. Welcome to the forum.

Re: Hello from East Anglia

Thanks Paul. I'm looking forward to getting out and using my camera. I was not too well last year and did almost no photography at all

I've got the following Olympus lenses ..
M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f3.5-5.6
M.Zuiko Digital 9-18mm f4-5.6

And some Panasonic lenses
Lumix G 25mm f1.7
Lumix G 42.5mm f1.7
