Greetings from Massachusetts

Hello, newly registered here. I'm a hobbyist and Ricoh GR owner. I bought the 21 lens as well, though I've barely used it yet so can't really comment. My photography history is a little unusual because I more or less sat on the sidelines for the last 15 years, not even a cell phone camera or point and shoot. I got back into it about a year ago, starting with a basic used M4/3 kit with two compact primes, just to see how it felt. I was pretty much hooked, and soon got the GR to kind of fit in with the M4/3 kit (which is now an EPL5 plus the Panasonic Leica 25mm, and soon the Oly 45). I really like M4/3 and feel like I should give it an honest go before deciding on it finally. But I am tempted to switch to perhaps a used or discounted K5iis with a good Sigma or Tamron zoom and maybe one or two bargain primes (I don't have the biggest budget at the moment, so I think the K3 will have to wait, though it looks exciting.) I originally learned on my dad's Spotmatic back in the '80s, and it managed to find it's way into my bag as i left for college etc. and he settled with a point and shoot. That was my camera for a couple of years, with just a great 50mm. So I think I have a bit of brand loyalty, even though I try not to be sentimental about such things and continue to be open to new brands and new concepts.
