    I've been a member of this forum for a while now and I recently decided to update my camera and needed input on the new panny and oly bodies, since I have only been rocking a GF1. I started another o vs p thread and got some great input and an offer to borrow both from Grinch. We have talk occasionally over the time we've been on here, but it blew me away when he offered to lend me his omd and his gx1 for nothing in return. So yesterday I drove to his home with my pet human and Drew aka. Grinch handed me a bag with the omd and 2 lenses he knew I wanted, so I could bring them with me on a trip to visit family. Most photography forums I have visited don't consistently encourage others and can have civil disagreements when they occasionally happen like here. This is a special thanks for the generosity of a fellow member of this great community.

    It's a sweet bag. Fits tons and love the fabric. I actually am waiting for a fossil messenger man purse that is almost the same fabric.

    Way to go, Grinch / Drew and Kelly / KVG. :bravo-009: Two more reasons why this forum is at the top of my "Best Forums" list!

    BTW, Kelly... can you show us a pic of your "pet human" you mentioned in your OP? :confused:
