    I was a Micro 4/3 user since I first tried the E-P1 — this small camera caused me to sell my DSLR gear (mostly Pentax) and permanently go the mirrorless route.

    It was a long journey, but I feel it has come to an end. Right now I have only one Micro 4/3 body left (my old and trusty Panasonic GH2) and no Micro 4/3 lenses. I will use this camera only for video work with old manual glass. I may even sell it eventually, but will probably keep it for its sentimental value.

    I have replaced my Micro 4/3 kit with Nikon V1, which is better both for action AND for general-purpose video, and Samsung NX20, which will be used for wide-angle/scenery/landscape/portrait shots. Surprisingly, the resulting size and weight of my bag has remained the same.

    I wish you all good luck. With excellent new cameras coming, such as Panasonic GX7 and Olympus E-M1, Micro 4/3 surely will have a bright future.

    I hope to see you on Amin's other sites — such as SeriousCompacts.com.

    Maybe we need a sub-forum for goodbye threads. They are getting old.

    Oh dear. So many of us expatriates around here now, lol. Pavel, whatever you shoot I know you'll do it justice. I'm sure I'll see you around Serious Compacts.

    You guys...well okay including me;) don't have to leave mu-43.com though. Our insights and advices will surely be worth something to newcomers or people seeking advice. It's the least we can do for the community. :D

    Hey, Pavel, I'll tell you what -- we'll split up the duty over here.

    I'll compliment or criticize all the image posts.

    You can answer the 1,437,342 posts saying, "What lens to buy" or "Which camera is best"...

    Tee hee...

    Sorry to see you go. I enjoyed your posts.

    This is a definite classier goodbye post than some of the recent ones ;). A good example for all. :D

    Too bad Amin's sites can't share a common forum thread devoted to images that is accessible from all of the sites? That way we could stay at our respective gears sites, but still have a posting area to discuss non-gear related issues common to us all.
