Lurking for a while but decided to join and introduce myself. My back is killing me with a bag full of Nikon stuff and I am planing an addition to "lighten" the load... maybe, a GF-1?
Love to read your posts and I learned a lot from your experience.

Welcome!

I know just how you feel too after shooting for years with Canon pro bodies and L series lenses. (Which I still have btw.)

Bought an E-P2 in December and a GF1 a few months later. Have an assortment of Olympus and Panny lenses and my full camera bag feels like it weighs less than my 1DmkIIn and 70-200 2.8L Canon combo.

Both are great cameras to use (so long as you don't try to shoot sports or birds in flight and expect similar results to the DSLRs).

I probably like the E-P2 better, but not by a lot.

Dan

Thank you guys! I've looked at E-P1 but I haven't touched the GF-1 yet. It looks like they are pretty much similar (no offense to anyone).
I love street photography. My D3 stops traffic but when I'm with my M2 and M3, I don't get that "deer in the headlights" look. I want to achieve that with a small digital and still get a decent image; that's why the m4/3 is tempting.
E-P1 went down in price but GF-1 it's still up there... oh well, I can wait!

Howdy next61, we're glad you found it here and hope you enjoy yourself. I have the GF1 and love it, they certainly have a nice look about them. I have to confess but when i purchase something 50 percent is based on how it looks and how it performs. But truthfully i can say with the GF1 the performance is 100% and so is the looks. GF= Girlfriend.

Hah, I like that! GF=girlfriend... never thought about that. My wife said the same about my Leica's and Nikon's, and I'm not going to mention that to her!
