hi everyone,
i just sold my 5d, got tired of carrying it around, and only really using it indoors.
i recently tried out an e-p1 and i think i liked it enough to do this move, i hope i am not wrong. i am looking to get panny g1 since i wanted a viewfinder and the ep-2 with the finder is just a little costly at this point. really looking forward to this m43 stuff :)

Like you I just sold my 5D and Canon gear. The G1 was my choice
because of the excellent EVF. I actually have more gear now than I
had before... :) The legacy glass thing can be quite addicting!!

The only thing that you might miss is the ability to crop. You can and
will still crop but the full frame 5D allowed so much area before you
noticed grain.

Welcome Kahren, good luck with your purchase... make sure you get a chance to try the G1 before making your final choice, also check out the E-PL1 which has the EVF port but not included.

Cheers

Brian

hodad66,
i never really cropped with the 5d, i just run around until i like what i see in the viewfinder. so i don' think i will really have a problem with this, though those couple times i did crop it is nice to have to be able to do so without loosing much.

Brian Mosley,
i went to BH photo the other day in NY, to look at the ep1 and ep2 and epl1 and gf1 and g1. i didn't like gf1 evf at all. the ep2 viewfinder was about same as the g1 the epl1 one they don't sell without the lens and i don't think i will have a use for the kit lens really. the ep1 obviously has no port for the evf and i think i really want a evf for now to help me focus with manual glass that i am planning on getting. i would ultimately want
ep2 with evf but its too pricey for me i didn't want to spend so much on the body. so i decided on the g1 for now, and i think later i will get ep2 with evf unless they will come out with something better by then :)

I picked up 2 different G1's on the bay for $315 each
and purchased the 45-200, then got the 20/1.7 as a gift.
When I need AF I'll use the pany lenses but mostly I play
with my myriad old glass...... :biggrin:

Welcome, Kahren! I think the G1 is a great choice. Definitely best bang for buck if you like to work with an EVF.

Hi kahren, good to hear you did your research... The G1 is terrific value for money - an excellent choice.

Cheers
