Talking Hi - M4/3 Newbie Alert! :)

Hi folks - I'm new to M4/3 and this forum but I've just got an Olympus OMD E-M10 + Oly 12-50mm + Panny 100-300mm.

Also a long time Sony DSLR/T Shooter and still have wide range of Sony gear inc. A77 and Nex 6 though the Nex will be "going" shortly I think

Also a long time Panasoncic TZ range user - still shoot regularly with my current TZ25.

No real particular photo style/genre - pretty eclectic though not much into Street or Portrait.

I Love Cats - have three at the moment - Sci-Fi - Shotokan Karate (hence the username) and reading (mostly fiction)

I'm on Flickr here

G'day Jim.

Welcome to a great forum from downunder. I'm looking forward to seeing some photos from you.



PS You don't need to post the photos upside down for me. My personal converter takes care of that for me.
