Felt bad that there were absolutely no messages here so I thought I would write one that I have had my E-1 since around the beginning of the year AND LOVE IT!!!
Thanks

I don't know what to say. We don't want you to be lonely. Congratualtions?

Glad you like it.

If you don't mind my asking what prompted you to buy the E1? I am honestly curious.

I have had mostly Olympus digital cameras from the beginning (once I decided that using the Sony Mavica's with their floppy disks would not produce good enough files IMHO to make prints) and was very happy with their quality. (C-2020, C3030, C2100, C700 - I think that's all of them)
I had the E-10 and was basically very happy with it as far as image quality was concerned. I was unhappy with the low maximum shutter speed (1/640) and the smallest aperture (if I remember correctly it was only round f8 or f11). That combination gave me problems on bright, sunny days at times.
I really liked the ergonomics of the E Series and, when I wanted to get a DSLR, the E-1 seemed a logical camera to look at. (I did not have a large collection of lenses from my SLR days to be concerned with.)

The E-1 seems to be a nice camera, you should check in on the overall dSLR site once in a while. We don't have many dSLR users here in general, and we are typically D7 or Digital Rebel users, and Jeff uses a 10D. John Reed is our expert on the FZ series, and a very good photographer in his own right. Jake is the Fuji enthusiast with an S602.

I think most of dSLR users have graduated within a brand. In my case I started with a Kodak D50 back in 1995, went through some Casio and Ricoh days, in 1996 and 1997, and then made the progression through the Nikon 900 family and now have a D70.

DCRP seems to garner more consumer all-in-one digicam users and first time dC users. This is not a bad thing, but it leaves the dSLR gang in the minority.

When you get to the dSLR folks there is a much finer line and not a whole lot to talk about, as we are pretty happy with our systems, and pretty much know what they can do. Maybe the occasional "have you tried this new lens" conversation, but not much on actual opperation and technique. I generally check in at Rob Galbraiths site to see what's new for dSLR's.

Anyway, welcome to DCRP.

Hi George, you cannot be more wrong here!!! I am desperatly eating info here at DCRP to get to dSLR. I am a happy owner of one G-3 (which I love) but I guess the time to learn something more on photography is here. So I will soon start to post stupid questions on how to get the best from my new dSLR, how to save in lenses and this newbie stuff. So I will appreciate (A LOT) your feedback. I promise you won't get bored.
;)

BTW. Congrats to everybody supporting/helping in this superb forum!
