    Hello everyone, just found this forum from a link in dpreview. Seems nice. As of myself I only have an FZ50, so far. Doing macro of insects with Raynox lenses and I am also interested in landscape.
    I'm waiting... and waiting for the ultimate gear to arrive. Maybe it will be the G2 or GH2. If not I'll buy a GH1. I think the video function would be very nice both for travel and for macro of insects. Since I'm not a video guy I'm not quite sure of the quality difference between G2 and GH1/GH2. Does it really show on a TV or large computer screen? If not I'll probably settle with a G2. I'm interested in the coming 100-300 mm since that would give me BOTH a good working distance to butterflies and dragonflies AND a good enough magnification.

    Welcome, sagarmatha! I don't think anyone has the details on GH2 yet.

    Hi sagarmatha, welcome to the home of m4/3rds... please make yourself at home :friends:

    If you have no interest in video, the G1 is a real bargain right now... well worth a look.

    Hi Sagarmatha!

    I'm Swedish but live in Houston. I just recently bought my first non point and shoot camera, an Olympus e-PL1 and I'm having a lot of fun with it.

    I also just joined this forum. Welcome. :)

    Hullo, welcome.
    Settle for a used G1 now, something else later...
    I think the G2 is just there for distraction ... until superGF2-EVF comes out ... ? :rolleyes:

    Well there is no video in G1 so it's not an alternative for me.
