    Hey all.
    Just joined and thought I'd say hi. I'm new to the SLR cameras, after years and years of using point and shoot cameras.
    I had the Olympus mju400 for several year, but been quite unhappy with it. The decided to get the Panasonic Lumix ZR1 which was awesome. After 2 years with the ZR1 I wanted more control Nd thought the micro 4/3 is perfect. Compact yes can swap lenses.

    So decided on the Panasonic GX1 paired with the Lumix G X Vario PZ 14 - 42mm Power OIS lense for compactness.

    Must say I love that camera but the volume of feature is overwhelming...

    Cheers.
    Thorsten

    Thanks for the welcome all.

    Icon, yeah I love it so far. Haven't really taken it anywhere yet, but played with it at home and its awesome. Going to Hong Kong at end of this week, so will be a good test of its capabilities and mine. LOL But yeah, been a big fan of Lumix cameras...
