Default About me and my gears

Hi Everyone,

I'm fairly new here to the forum. I've been reading for a while but just started posting couple days ago. I'm glad I found this on-line Oly community, I really appreciate all the comments and suggestion given here by the other experienced photographers. So I like to introduce myself and try to learn more photography skill on this site.

I've been doing photography exclusively with Olympus for 3 years. I have to admit I love all Zuiko lenses, so I've been stick to them since day one. Even I've invested quit a bit on equipments but I still have a long way to go on my photography skills. Here are some of my current gears, hope my photo techniques can catch up with my gears very soon. Thanks for all your support.

Hi jacobt
Good to see new people here. From your kit I see you have invested quite a bit in lenses.

You said you have been Olympus user for 3 years did you ever have other makerís equipment if so what type and what made you decide on Olympus?

What lenses do you find you use the most as they is quite a bit of overlap on the 12-60mm swd and 35-100mm.

I'm trying to save up for the 35-100mm but Iím on crappie wages lol.

So once again welcome to this forum as it moves along at a nice leisurely pace.

Hi Brian,

I was using Canon point&shoot cameras before till I bought my 1st Oly E510 3 years ago. Over the last 3 years I built up my lens collections quite a bit. So far I have 50 f2, 12-60, 18-180, 70-300, 50-200 and 35-100. You can tell they overlap quite a bit but they all have their pros and cons so I decided to keep them all

The 35-100 f2 looks really nice on that E30. Without the massive hood, it looks not that much larger than a 50-200 SWD....without its' hood to, of course.

It's been a while since I was last down to Austin to do any photography. So long that I think the last time I was, it was with a Nikon F4s and I was scanning film....YUK. I need to put that on a 3 day weekend planner sometime the next few months.
