    Default From jimcb: Hello everyone!

    Hello every one, I have just registered to Four Thirds Photo

    I am an old timer, I started photo in 1965 with a
    Pentax SV 3-M camera (metal, mechanical, manual).
    Later, I switched to Canon F-1 cameras (old and new), then to Leica (M
    and R series).

    In 2003, I took the jump to digital with an Olympus E-1, and I loved it.
    In several respects, the E-1 feels like a Leica, and some ZD
    lenses are in the Leica class by their resolution and contrast
    (macro 50 and 50-200).

    My Olympus gear consists of two E-1 bodies, four lenses (11-22, 14-54,
    macro 50 and 50-200), one HLD-2 battery holder, and flashes (FL-50,
    FL-36, RF-11 and TF-22).

    I also use a Nikon LS-4000-ED 35mm film scanner.

    You can see some of my photos (and computer-generated images) on
    www.pbase.com/jimcb.

    I live in France, 25 km west of Paris.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to the site. I am glad you are here.
    I love the 50-200mm. But if you like that, look at the 150mm. That is probably the sharpest most compact telephoto lens I have ever sceen. (But of course I don't own it, I am fat and lazy and own the 90-250, and 35-100)
    But all of the lenses are superb.

    Hi Jim

    Great galleries especially the b&w images and favourites galleries. The computer generated images are also fascinating, I'll have to look into the programs you mentioned on the galleries.

    I look forward to seeing some more.

    Welcome Jim.
    Great pics in the gallery.
    I may have to play with fractals again, it's been quite a few years since last time...
    I'm nobody's fool. I can do it all on my own.

    Welcome on board. I'll check out your photos at a later occasion. F1 was a great camera. Used to have an EF ages ago. I've been using olympus the last 24 years though.

    Cheers

    Hi jimcb, welcome, like you I used the M6 & R6.2 cameras and lenses and as you say they are excellent, I found the Olympus 4/3rds cameras and lenses do a superb job.
    In my earlier years I spent a lot of time flying from Essex UK to LeTourquet,
    and doing a lot of photography in LeTorquet & Paris.
    This is a great site, enjoy.

    Welcome, jimcb! I'm following the opposite track to you:I have an E-1 but am aspiring to Leica rangefinders - one day, perhaps when they go digital and I get a proper job, I'll get one...

    Love your black and white gallery, btw - esp. cat in a tunnel.

    Good to see another old timer. More simpathy for us with poorer and poorer eyesight
    To find the answers - question them!
