    Default Greetings from Colorado!

    Hi fellow photo enthusiasts!

    I am the happy owner of a Oly E-500 with the 2-lens kit.

    I have always liked photography, but have found that I REALLY like it in the last several years. My first camera was a little no-name box camera that used 640 roll film. My dad bought if for me in Arizona back in 1962. That little camera went to a lot of places....Washington, DC; The New York World's Fair; and California to name a few.

    I had a Kodak Instamatic that used 127 cartridges during my teen years. I have also had a couple of Polaroid models before moving up to point & shoot 35mm cameras. About 6 years ago or so, I played with an old Pentax K-1000 my son had used in a high school journalism class, and decided to get a Pentax ZX-M. Still a very nice camera. I later upgraded to a ZX-7.

    My first foray into digital photography was a Sony Mavica that used floppy diskettes as its media. About 2 years ago, my wife got me a Gateway DC-T50, a 5 MP point & shoot. It takes very nice photos, and I still carry it almost everywhere because of its size. However, last month after wanting to get the benefits and control of my Pentax SLRs in digital form, I took the plunge and got my Oly E-500 after considering Pentax *ist, Nikon D50, and Canon Rebel XT.

    So that's my photographic story. I am not a pro photog, but hope to learn a lot by sharing information here.

    I am an original resident of Highlands Ranch. February, 1983. There were 700 people in the Ranch when we moved in. Now there are over 70,000. Times have changed.

    I hope you enjoy your 4/3 kit. I can't get enough of mine. I'm running an E-1 with HLD-2, 14-54mm, 50-200mm, 8mm fisheye, and an FL-50. The only thing I long for in a new E is a 3 inch LCD. My old eyes would like that.
