Hi from Newtongrange

Hi, I'm fairly new to using Olympus after buying a EM1.2 and 12-100mm. Looking to build a little set up for when I am walking or taking street photography to supplement my big heavy Nikon set up. Looks a nice place to be and learn more about M$ and Oly in particular.

Re: Hi from Newtongrange

Welcome.
I sold all my Nikon stuff after moving to Oly M4/3.
Also my back said thank you after no longer having to carry all the heavy Nikon gear around.

Re: Hi from Newtongrange

Hi Wookie,

I know Edinburgh and the area around it pretty well, so it will be interesting to see your take on the area and your comparisons between the Nikon and Oly kit
