    Hi All,

    As I've added a couple of images recently, I thought I'd better do the proper thing and introduce myself :) I'm a long time Canon dslr user, but felt the lure of Fuji firstly a year or so ago when I was bought an X10 as a special birthday present, and very recently decided that dslrs were no more for me, sold most of my Canon based equipment, and added a X-E1 + 18-55 to my Fuji collection :) I'm sure I'll add the 55-200 at some point, but for now I'm getting by with an adapted EF fit Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom, which I rather enjoy using, and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, which is proving a bit more of a challenge (when attached to a Canon body, it was by far the most rewarding lens in the collection).

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to add much to the forum (apart from adding the occasional iffy photo), but if the opportunity arises where I can add something constructive, I'll be happy to do so.

    Hello Nigel,

    Welcome! Interestingly, I entered the Fuji world also with the X10 as a birthday present! I used Nikon instead of Canon though. Used the Nikon 105mm macro and still regret selling that one.

    Have a great time here. I am looking forward to your photos.

    Nigel, you've already added to the forum - and here's a belated welcome aboard from me!

    Although I'm not able to be around much these days, eventually I'll be hanging out more...and posting current photos - in the meantime I'm enjoying everyone's photographs including yours. So glad you found your way here!
