I started off with film. Learned on compact RFs like the Konica Auto S3 and the Olympus 35RC (still have them) I was an early adopter of digital (Olympus D-500L). I LOVED that camera... ...and sometimes I really miss it. I went through a series of DSLR's (Olympus, Canon and Nikon). I worked as a product photographer and shot a ton of photos of ugly products made in China. It was not fun work but it got me through college and I learned a lot. Fast forward to now. I still do photography as a hobby. I have built up a nice little Olympus EPL-1 with some great lenses (both native and legacy). I have an LX3 and a couple of Fuji P&S as well as a Panasonic ZS3 on it's way yet of all the digital gear I've had (or have) that first Olympus is my all time favorite. I'm usually not sentimental about gear. As far as I'm concerned it's just stuff, but I sure do miss that camera some days...all 850K pixels worth.
