I just miss this forum :-(

After my brief experience with pentax I switched to Olympus primarily to reduce size and cost of ownership. But the biggest thing I miss is the friendly and nice people I met here and overall community feel. Its like once you are used to just need starbucks..

I hope its okay if I just hang around and keep posting on photos...god knows may be one day I will again official forum member aka pentax camera onwer

What Paul said...

We are very tolerant of many things... but not everything. Just many things... For example, abusive behavior is not tolerated. We expect a reasonable degree of civility, just as you would expect to be treated by others. (Not aimed at you, just trying to clarify!)

Sharp wit is not discouraged however...

So you found Olympus to be cheaper? How did you find that?

Damn Brit

Piss off.

Seriously, you're most welcome. a lot of what gets talked about is appropriate across brands and a photo is a photo.

You're also a Site Supporter, we very much appreciate that.

I'm surprised to hear you say you switched in part to reduce cost of ownership.

My sister-in-law shoots Olympus.

I have WAY more lenses than she does but I haven't spent nearly as much as she has.

I don't mind, but why don't you get an m42 adapter for the Olympus and some Takumar lenses and you will have a perfect excuse to be here even for the purists?

No way....I just switched to HOLGA and got some real flack for doing so. Did you get any flack yet? If not, perhaps you should go to dp review, drop some indiscriminate bomb, get abused, come back and show us your war wounds and voila, you are welcome.

Ben, Ben, Ben. You were told once not to use the "H" word here. Go stand in the corner.
