Hi there - I'm the founder and president of SMASH Direct. Used Camera Buyer - Your Best Choice for Selling Your Used Cameras and Equipment.
We are shutterblade and shutterbladeoutlet on eBay

As the owner of this company, I have access to all kinds of camera gear (are you drooling yet?).

For all but very fast sports action photography, I have been using MFT format for about 6 months now for all of my personal photography and videography. (for fast sports action, my go to setup is the 1D Mk III paired with a 300 2.8 IS). Hopefully soon, MFT will have a fast enough body and lens combo - I hear the GH2 is 5 frames per sec! Now all we need is a 200 f/2.8 or maybe a 150 f/2.0 MFT lens!!!

My lineup is based around a GH1 body. It is a hackable serial number but I haven't hacked it YET (too scared of what might happen). I basically have all the Panasonic lenses now and I'm really looking forward to the new 14mm prime that Panny will release soon!

Anyway, I will do my best to not promote our sites here on the forums but if you get a chance, and you have experience with dealing with our company (good or bad). I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for having me part of the forum!

Welcome from Midlothian, VA - I was in your neck of the woods at the Celtic festival last weekend.

I've bid on a few of your Pentax lenses to no success ;)
