KM A2 is still my main walk-about camera -- just bought a second one
after my first one failed under heavy ab//use

E300 + Grip
14-54, 11-22 Sigma 18-125 OM 50 F1.4 14-45+$50 fisheye
FL-36, Radio slaves, Old Nikon potato masher

Pana FZ10 for long IS zoom doesn't go out very often

Nikon FTN (with a half-shot roll of film STILL waiting processing)

I'm over-forumed, so I'm not sure how often I'll be here.

Hey guy, I know what you mean about being "over-forumed." I used to spend night and day over at the other place. I still periodically float around (I do get antsy y'know). Anyway, as I've mentioned to countless folks, this fourthirdsphoto (FTP) site is not necessarily an addicting venture, but what you will find is that as you adapt to this site, it becomes a real pleasure to post - meaning the layout, the editing options, formatting options, etc. Most of the folks here were the same regulars from the other place who elected to move here (either exclusively now, or in addition to...). But the end result is that this is definitely not a volatile or explosive place. So you can get involved in some nice conversations, information gathering, etc. - all without the nastiness that often takes place in "some" other locations.

So a hearty welcome aboard!

Hi there and welcome. I used to lurk around on dp. I'll think you'll find that the company is better on this site.

Hi and welcome Alan -
I still hang out a little at DP but like the atmosphere here a lot better. I'm sure you will enjoy this place, it did take me a little while to catch on to the differences in posting and viewing but now I'm really enjoying the friendly and helpful attitude here.
