      There a couple.

      Pardee's Cameras: 3335 El Camino Avenue
      Sacramento, California 95821
      Tel: 916.483.3435

      Camera Arts: 712 57TH St
      Sacramento, CA 95819-3325
      Phone: (916) 736-3084

      Pardees has the largest selections of all major manufacturers and a complete line of 4/3rds lenses. I think you love this store.

      Camera Arts sorry to say does not carry Olympus. They do have several OM Prime lenses though.

        Hi Carl, you are very welcome to FTU. Just read your profile - you're building a new home in Bali? Wow! I lived in Indonesia as a child for a couple of years and we went to Bali once - still remember it vividly, but I'm sure it has changed a lot in 35 years.

        What kind of photography are you interested in? Marine - hopefully!

          As of now, My fiance and I purchased a 1 acre lot in Bali, We should start building early next year. My goal is to retire in 3 years if my investments and finances fall in place. Hopefully I've planned wisely.

          My interest in photography varies from Portraiture, Landscape, Scenic, etc...I just love photography period. Part of a business venture I'm planning with a friend is to run a Pacific Island Adventures Tours.

          Ian, maybe you can assist me. I've been trying to upload pictures and have been unsuccessful. I've chosen several photos from my computer file through the Browse process and clicked Submit. It says successful, but I can't seem to find them in the gallery and the total bytes used counter is still 0. Woud you know what I may be overlooking?

              Hi -

              Surely FLW should be 'Hold my beer and I'll watch you drink it'.

              I like the sound of paradise - never been to Bali -hmmm.

              Regards. Barr1e
