Hello from Toronto

Hi guys

Gareth from Toronto. Shooting for longer than I care to mention. Dropped film, got back into digital about 15 years ago and have run the gamut from dslr's of all types, a Leica M8, M9, to an Olympus EM-1. Looking at a 645Z as a reasonably prices (comparatively speaking) MF system. Will have to sell the Leica and lenses to do it but I ma more of a landscape shooter and am terribly disappointed by the quality of the files from the EM-1.

Plus, the more considered, stick it on a tripod approach is more me.

Still researching but am pretty committed, just have to work out how to get the PO approved by management and procurement (it's the same person in our house and not me )

Good news - The PO was approved pending the necessary Economic Impact Statement (if management can get food through without a PO I'm sure I can do this). Can't write anymore, currently up a ladder cleaning the windows while folding laundry. Life will never be the same.

My local dealer (even the word "dealer" has terrible implications) has promised me a loaner while a good friend has emailed me the link for user manual.

Thanks for the links guys, will waste more time today, reading up on them.

Nobody is really helping.
