    Hello everybody,

    I bought a m43 camera 2 months ago and have been reading along this forum ever since. I have been finding it incredibly helpful to get started - so many thanks for sharing all these experiences!

    Here is how I ended up with a m43 camera: I have been looking for a light weight handbag sized :) camera a long lime already. Basically, the idea was to find something to carry with me and not miss my nikon DSLR too much. However, while I like decent camera gear, I am not too much into following all the tech talk that's out there. Thus the presence of m43 did not really occur to me ... until I came across a GF3 commercial. Intrigued by the system I visited a local camera shop and ended up buying a GF2 ("stepping down" from DSLR, I could not see myself with a camera without hot shoe).

    Meanwhile, in terms of photography, the GF2 has evolved to actually being a step up from DSLR. As "the best camera is the one you have with you" and I take that little thing almost wherever I go.. it is quite obviously the best camera I ever had!

    Grüss' Dich Brina!

    You made a good choice, similar to me. My Nikon bag hurts my back therefore an Oly E-P2 plus some lenses in this cute little brown leather bag is all I need for holidays and city trips.
    The forum here is a very nice international place to 'live' photography without having (too much) fanboys or girls.....:rolleyes:
