Earlier this year I sold all my Pentax gear, including 67, DSLR and some nice glass, and raised a fair bit of cash, fed up of carrying all the gear around, I looked for a smaller system.
I got a Monochrom and a few lens, B&W always appealed to me and I have a G12 for snapshots. Never had a rangefinder before, so lots to learn.
Member of a local camera club, need to learn more about PP, got Lightroom and Silver Fex with the camera, but I would rather be out with the camera than in front of the computer.
I get a lot of pleasure from owning nice equipment, even if I'm not a great photographer, and have managed to get a 50mm Apo-Summicron and a Noctilux recently.
Looking forward to learning from members on this forum.
Best wishes, Gary.

Hi Gary, and welcome to LVL!

That must be quite an adjustment, going from something like the 67 to an M! Though I can totally relate, as I used to drag around way too much Canon DSLR kit. Like you, I got really tired of dragging it around. Nothing wrong with liking nice equipment (be it a camera or whatever). Life's short - enjoy it.

Looking forward to hearing of your experience and seeing photos!

Hi Gary.

Welcome to LVL.
Like you I'm new here. Seems like a friendly and positive place to be.

Loads of info on M system too.

I shoot film (M2) myself but would love a Digital M.

All the best.

Welcome Gary

I'm originally from Dudley although I now live in Wolverhampton! Good to have another Black Country lad around. I look forward to seeing some images from your new kit.
