    Hi there everyone!

    My name is Justin and I have recently been introduced this great site by Stillshunter.

    I used to be obsessed with my DSLR, until I started flying interstate every fortnight and unable to take my camera each time. So I purchased a GF1 with a 20mm lens, which started my love of street photography. I recently sold that and purchased my Fuji x100 which has caused much jealousy from my Canon 40D as the x100 has been my camera of choice lately.

    I have so much to learn still, and this site has already provided a source of inspiration and knowledge. Particularly with the dedicated x100 section which I see myself staying in a fair bit.

    So hello everyone!!

    Welcome Justin, from another Victorian. I came over here through mu43. I bought an LX3 off ebay, and it lives permanently in my car. My other gear is all mu43. A G1, GF1, 20mm, 14-45mm and 45-200mm. Oh and some Canon FD lenses, left over from my pro days. Just about to go OS and will always have my LX3 in my pocket.

    Hello, Justin! Melbourne's a beautiful city -- my wife and I were there, about twelve years ago.

    Glad you could make your way over mate. I'm sure the folks here will live up to all the expectations I set up of them. Honestly, they're - no "we're" - a great little group....and even genuinely honest and frank when we need to be :friends:

    Hope to mingle with you here for the many years to come.
