    Well I've decided to sell up my Canon gear and have just bought a GH2.
    I previously had a consumer HD panasonic camcorder and a Canon 300d.

    Decided that the GH2 would cover my needs in one device. Hoping some fast zooms come out soon as I'm enjoying the 14-140mm, but a little extra speed wouldn't go a miss!

    I've also got a panasonic lx3 and enjoy using that so much it drew me to the GH2 for my more demanding needs.

    Hope to be hanging out on here a bit.
    Andrew

    Welcome Andrew, and hello from Edinburgh :) 

    That's a fine camera you've chosen there. Are you interested in playing with legacy lenses? It's a lot of fun, and one of the things that make m43 an enjoyable format to use. Glad you decided to join us!

    All the best,

    Colin

    Thanks for the welcomes!
    I must admit I'm quite tempted to have a play with some legacy lenses.

    Everything I've got at the moment is Canon EF/EOS lenses, but I think I'd be better to sell them and get some others that are in less demand as I can probably get what I paid for the others.

    Any recommendation. Looking for a small fast prime for portraits.

    Still getting used to (or not!) the camera. Went to tropical world in Leeds yesterday, I know when I go there the lenses always steam up due to the heat and humidity until they get chance to acclimatize. I thought they were taking longer than usual and wouldn't focus. Then realised I must have knocked the focus to MF - doh! Still some reasonable video towards the end and loved using the tele-ex mode!
