Hello gang! I'm new to the 4/3 forum, and to 4/3 photography. I recently bought the two lens E500 kit, and am learning it as I go. I've had years of experience with film cameras, including the old Olympus OM-1, Nikon F, etc. My latest Digital camera was a Fujifilm S2.

I am a pastor of a Southern Baptist Church in Lenoir City TN (USA.) I'm 55 years old with three children and three grandchildren. I love photography Astronomy, Cartooning, Computers, and WAY too many other things too.

I am glad to find a community for the 4/3 camera system.

See you on the forums!

Thanks for the reply! We sure have a great part of the world to photograph don't we? What camera do you use?

We have both the E-1 and the E-500. I use the E-1 mainly and my husband uses the E-500. We both prefer our respective models. Which is a good thing. The bad thing is we prefer the same lenses and have to share those said lenses :D

The UT trial gardens are lovely this time of year. Lots to shoot there

Hi Thom, and welcome to the forums!

Tor Hogne here, from Norway :) I shoot, or try to do the nearest equivalent, with an E-1 :).

Take care!
