Default My last post using an Olympus DSLR

Today was rather odd day for me as I was packing up the last of my Olympus
43 gear and sending it to the new owner in California. Yesterday, I shipped my 12-60mmSWD lens to a fellow in Canada. The web has certainly changed how we interact and how commerce is conducted. Yesterday morning, I put a posting on fourthirdsphoto.com listing olympus my equipment and today it's all gone.

Still can't get over how quick the end came............

So, with my E-30, 12-60SWD, 70-300mm, 40-150mm, and 50-200mm all gone, there is no reason to post in this forum.

I've had a great time getting to know all of you, exchanging barbs, jokes and discussing the issues of the day. Perhaps our paths will cross again.

Here is the last photo I took using the E-30 and the 12-60SWD;

A very beautifull picture Zig.
I'm not so long on the forum yet but saw already very good pictures from you.
Sad you leave us, but I want also wish you many success with the new gear you might buy.

Zig,
I will miss your posts but don't stop coming in to look or comment. I don't own a Fuji but I have posted there as friends have them. I know you look at other places because I've seen your posts there including printers and other sections. You have been very helpful to me and others here. Don't be a stranger.

No Zig, you can't get away that easily. We fully expect that you won't abandon your buddies here on the forum, and anticipate you comments and critiques of our photos. Don't even think about not posting here!

You can run but you can't hide.

Thanks VERY much for all the help in the past.

Could not have posted a nicer, final image.

Definitely understand the move and why it was made. The new stuff looks mighty impressive.
