    Lenses? The kit lens should be more than enough to start you off. Hopefully, you have the 40-150mm kit lens as well, for telephoto reach.

    For landscape, the ZD 11-22mm is a wonderful lens, if you have the budget. Or else, your 14-45mm kit lens will do just fine.

    For portraits, the ZD 50mm f/2 Macro is a nice lens, with wonderful bokeh. Yes, macro lens. It's slow, but it's a superb portrait lens. Look around in the Four Thirds forum for pictures.

    Enjoy your camera, and start shooting!
    If E-300 is old,what is the E-1?lol,well,i think Dorts have just about explain all,i agree with him that the 2 kit lens are great for beginers

    Because yesterday while taking shot at one of the churches in cityhall area, I noticed a small balck shadow like at the edge left topmost area of the image.I removed the lens hood and it's gone.

    Thanks for the advice on the CF card.Good thing I inquire first because for the price of 1 g HS CF you can buy a 2 g of regular speed CF.That's true I'm not yet into highspeed shooting that's why I might as well settle for a regular CF card first then buy a highspeed later on.

    One more thing is about the storage.I want a storage for my dvd cam as well( which I rarely use ) The dry box at carrefour is a bit small for the 2 equipment.The electronic dry cabinet is a bit high for me. Would an airtight container will do?I have a lot of silica gel in packets (my wife is working in an apparel shop)Will placing it in the air tight with silica gel packets do?
    Thanks!
    I use an air tight container with silica gel,so far,been using it for years,no prob

    widest would be 7-14mm,but that is super ex,11-22 is more affordable

    Thanks for the reply spidey89!

    E1 If I'm not mistaken came out first than e300 right? but from what I know e1 is the professional series already, compared with the amateur/entry level model of e300.But I liked the e300 performance at the moment.Solid body and feel of it.

    So I might as well buy the airtight box at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Simply the Best!
