    Hi, I've been following the forum for a few months now.

    I have a Nikon D5000 DSLR but I haven been getting more interested in getting a :43:'s camera primarily because of the bulk. I'm pretty sure I'd take more pics as I want something less obtrusive and more 'pick up and go'.

    I have had several point and shoots along the way but once I experienced the APS-C sensor size I hit a revelation ("what the F have I been doing all these years with point and shoots!") that I could never go back to a point and shoot sensor size camera... I may as well just use my 8 megapixel cell phone.

    So I have tested out some :43: cameras in the stores such as the Sony NEX series and an Olympus model (not sure exactly which one). Interface plays a big part for me so I didn't like the NEX's because the menu system was 'dumbed down' like a point and shoot. So I'm leaning towards a more traditional and 'professional' interface.

    I'm still holding off on which one to get as I'm still waiting for:
    - Nikon's potential announcement of a mirrorless system
    - The Panasonic GF3. The announcement of the GF2 really disappointed me and how it went more the direction of point and shoot.
    - The Olympus EP3. Potentially a more professional style camera.

    I am also the developer of this app:
    Mirrorless Lenses for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You are encouraged to leave a review of the app and a 5-star rating! :wink:

    From what I can see, and what I have experienced, this is really a friendly forum. Great job guys! :tongue: :2thumbs:
