Hi there... I've been involved with photography since the film days of the 1970s. My first SLR was a Minolta SRT-200 with 50mm Rokkor-X f/2.0 lens... which I still own BTW. I currently have a full Pentax DSLR kit but got into micro four thirds early in 2010 with the purchase of an Olympus E-PL1. A fine camera, whose only fault (at least to me) was a rear LCD that was impossible to use in bright sunlight. So when I lost (don't ask) my E-PL1 and $250 VF-2 electronic viewfinder while on vacation this summer, I replaced it in the fall with a leftover (but brand-new) Panasonic G1 that was offered for $400 on Amazon.com. I have been enjoying the camera and its built-in viewfinder ever since, I have added the Lumix 45-200mm and 100-300mm telephotos and both the 14mm f/2.5 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lenses. This micro four-thirds kit is used for at least 50 percent of my current shooting. Next on the list? Perhaps a GH2 or another Olympus once they unveil some of their new cameras this year. I would love it if either Panasonic or Olympus (or both!) would introduce a rangefinder-style camera with built-in viewfinder - kind of a micro four-thirds version of the Fujifilm X100 but with interchangeable lenses. Micro four-thirds is the biggest breath of fresh air to hit photography in the digital era.
