I'm so used to the light weight, I could never go back to the Canon zoom. I owned the 70-200 II, and it is the better lens, but the differences aren't enough to make me want to lug quadruple the weight.

If someone can offer a good tripod recommendation for an OM-D kit, I'd appreciate it. I've never had a proper tripod before, and would like to pick one up. Obviously I want to err on the smaller/lighter side given the tiny size of my kit and lenses now. I don't have any plans to use this with a DSLR - just mirror less, traveling/camping/etc.

Thanks!

^^just make sure you don't go TOO light. You still need something sturdy and solid. You don't need an enormous one, but too light and vibrations will still be a problem. I use an Induro CX213 with a Photoclam PC-36 ballhead. Light, very solid, and extremely durable. That combo is around $400-$500, which is what you can expect to spend for anything decent. If you want sturdy and very light weight, that means carbon fiber. You can get affordable and sturdy, sturdy and lightweight or lightweight and affordable, but all three don't coincide.

Two from today with a VERY lightweight combo: OM-D with Panasonic 14/2.5:

I have the Induro CX113 (smaller than the 213) and it works well. Could not beat the price. A one day special on Amazon - $80.00.

Beautiful shots with the 60! Love the lighting on the winter leaves.

Jordan - thanks for the tip on the tripod. I'll check that one out.

Check out the Benro Travel Flat carbon fiber tripods. I think they are very good value, and really nice for travel as they are compact, light and folds flat. I am using the C1190T with the Markins Q3 ballhead.

My main tripod is a Gitzo GT2540 with Arca Swiss Z1 ballhead. It's a bit of an overkill for the OM-D but it's a great tripod and ballhead.

The native m4/3 lenses are so good that I have a tendency to neglect my Alts.

Here is a shot today taken with one of my old favorites.....CZJ Flek 35 f/2.4 @ f/4....

Just got my OM-D yesterday and woke up to light fog this morning. Here's the first thing I found to shoot, just down the road from where I live.

Welcome to the OM-D world, Doug. This is a nice first image. I would love to see a little more if the upper right side of this picture.

Thanks for the welcome Bobby. The upper right side was a house that I was purposely trying to keep out of the frame. I wanted that white line all the way to the lower right corner but couldn't do it while keeping the house out and keeping the mailbox close to where I wanted it.
