Sounds good, just make sure the lenses are decent and you should have no problems.

I do believe that post may be the longest run on sentence I have ever read.
 
Please put in punctuations, it make for an easier read. I thought you just got ripped off from Ebay and had no money to spend???

Wow. I can't follow that. Like the other posters said, try punctuation. It really helps for readability!

No kidding, huh, a bit ago he was asking for donations or free gear.
 
Hi,
I have heard a lot about the kit lenses of Olympus(Zuiko 14-45 and 40-150mm) which are rated to be the best kit lenses. Also Olympus is a very good camera brand but if you plan later to buy additional lenses, Olympus lenses are very expensive and it is hard to find alternative brand lenses (like Sigma, Tamron) which are compatible by Olympus mounts (four thirds system). As my opinion the body is of course enough for micro photography but the lenses seem to be for general purpose (scenery and portrait), so you will need to buy a macro lens or alternatively will buy close up sets or extension tubes which are cheaper solutions.
 
oh...my apologies. I didn't look at the posted date.
 
no problem, im just trying to get going. was it easy for you guys to get going or do you guys just do this for fun. im trying to make a job out of it. lol... then i get screwed and they tell me the only way i can get my money back is going to small claims court. im 16 i cant sue someone.

I got screwed over on ebay also. It really sucked. I lost more $ than you...I was trying to buy a Mamiya medium format camera and I lost the bidding but someone sent me a completely genuine-looking "2nd chance" Ebay email saying that the original winner declined to buy so he was giving me the option. I got suckered...unfortunately. It really sucks, I know. All you can do is file the proper complaints...your parents can maybe file the forms, if you want to deal with the headache of trying to pursue your money.

Ebay suggested to me to file a complaint with the FBI because this guy was overseas which is what I did but nothing came of it. I never got my money back.

The best you can do is use this as a learning experience and move on. Start saving again and make sure you buy from a reputable source. In the meantime, use what you have, and read all you can and learn. That's what I'm doing now, saving for a Canon 5D (I think) and practicing w/my 300D and reading and researching all I can.
