Why I Just Bought an Olympus Four Thirds Camera System

Accidental tourist

I stumbled onto the 4/3 system.  I was nowhere near as organised as you.  I accidentally got an E500 (it had DSLR in the sales brief) and it came with twin kit all in excellent condition and well looked after.  Forget it had only 4900 shutter clicks, I found that out by accident too.  Then someone suggested the kit zoom wasn't up to it so I advertised for a new one in this very forum and surprise surprise someone not only in my own country, but he lived just down the road too and he sold me a minter 70-300.  Then  I accidentally started buying more gear and now feel if I won the lottery I'd still keep my E500 because I have not learnt how to drive it properly yet and I love challenges.

So by design my good friend you have entered a fraught but fulfilling world of Oly 4/3.  Enjoy.

worth tasting.
