Hello all! A new era has begun - i went DSLR. Unfortunately I am not allowed to post images taken with my new Canon EOS, and it's the only Cam I use since i got it a few weeks ago. I dont know if i will be posting new images taken with my C-7070 or if i will dig out some from the archive to post it. So i dont know if I will continue to be an active member here - and I feel a bit sad about this, but the urge to use a DSLR will eventually prevent me from using my C-7070 anymore. It served me well and it will never be sold for due to nostalgic reasons. However i want to thank all people here for sharing, for encouragement and all the nice comments. I felt very comfortable here and I learned a lot. Thanks to all and I wish you a great 2007, Regards, Dietrich

Good Luck Dietrich

Congrats on the new camera Dietrich. Do hope it serves you well, hey what?s in a name eh! IMO these days they are all just about the same in the end, all one can hope for is reliability. I too toyed with the idea of DSLR, but vetoed it as I spent many, many years lugging around tons of equipment, and you know I never did have the right lens mounted for a given shot and was always changing them;-) So for me point and shoots work well enough. Good luck to you and do drop by Myolympus from time to time eh.

Thanks Randall!
Well, whats in a name. You are right. The thing with DSLR is the bigger sensor, in my case a full-frame. Also noise is an issue, or not anymore now :-).Especially low-light capabilities are far superior than that of the C-7070. Then the variety of lenses, hence different focal lenght's that can be used etc. A lot of advantages for me, but this is subjective. But since I am more interested in Outdoor, Landscape etc. i.e. photography under non-ideal lightning as opposed to photography in controlled settings (studio-work, portrait) this becomes indeed important. Last but not least - it was a gift from my parents for graduating from university - so it holds a very special symbolic value for me.
Thanks for your words, this is much appreciated,
Regards Dietrich

Thanks for your words Ole! I definitely have not given up the idea of using my C-7070. So lets see what the future will bring...
I will stick around ;-)

Don't worry Dietrich... you will be using your 7070 onwards too. I have E-330 and my old 5060 both in use. There will be situations when you just do not want to or simply can't carry 5kg of hardware with you and anyway it is always good to have some backup camera with you when travelling if youtr new "Number One" let's you down. Anyway it's a pity that you leave this forum and we can not see your photos here anymore and also a pity that your new Number One is a C.. Monoculture is always a bad thing and the C seems to cover already some 70-80% of the DSLR market. Of course there are some undisputable and obvious and some not at all so obvious reasons for this. I used to shoot Canon SLR for ten years before changing for Olympus.
I wish you all the best and many great shots with your new camera. Tsch?ss, Pekka.

Hello Pekka, thanks for your contribution. I agree with your opinion in every aspect. I have choosen C.. for some reasons: Most choice of lenses from non-canon manufacturers. Even Leica lenses can used with an adaptor(ok i am not sure, maybe that is also true with the right adaptor for olympus dslr's). The noise/lowlight-capabilities of the full-frame sensor is just awesome, this is really something i want. And i want to have the pixel-resources for large prints. I mean large: 100cm in the longer dimension for that awesome yosemity-halfdome-image a I am planning to take in the future..;-).
