    Finally getting a new camera after many years. Making do with Canon Powershot Pro1 for too long. Loved film but can't get it developed reliably any more. Spent high school in the darkroom dodging and burning.
    Pre-ordered the GX7. Looks to have most everything I want.
    What I look forward to the most is playing around with cheap old school lenses from ebay. I know the IQ won't be the best but I want to have some fun and Micro 43 seems to allow for that.

    Welcome Vitruvius!

    Can't wait to see you posting pix taken with your new GX-7! Compared to what you're used to with that great (but definitely dated Canon Pro-1) you're going to be BLOWN away! (I know, used to have one A LONG time ago!).

    Cheers!

    Welcome. Good camera choice, and the old lens plan sounds fun and creative too.
