    I'm a Nikon shooter, and that D3 with f2.8 glass really works well at a HS football game. But it is way too much to carry around for a casual stroll. I'm looking for a high quality, small alternative and the micro 4/3 seems very promising. If Nikon would only bring one out at Photokina this year. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Welcome Ed.
    Philly here. The 1st step is to decide on the form of the camera. You may find the Panny G series attractive as it is close to the form your in with the Nikon.
    I have the Pens as I like the Leica form in a camera.

    There's plenty to read around here.
    If your near Philly, we could meet and I can let you try a Pen.

    Ed, thanks for your introduction and Streetshooter really means it - he's just that kind of guy.

    Hope Photokina brings you what you want, or you find it in existence already.

    View finder important

    Streetshooter you read me very well. I've spent too many years looking through a view finder. I have a little LX3 that is fun and takes a nice picture, but I feel like I'm shooting blind using the LCD. The anticipation of a new purchase is half the fun.
