    Hi there, I received my new (used) Panny G1 last Friday, just in time to take it out last weekend :) . I chose to get into M43 after extensive research on which camera to buy next. I've been into film photography for over 35 years, and digital for about 7 years with a Nikon D100. I still use my film cameras as well as my D100. I only started noticing the M43 format recently, after I tested a Canon S90 and G11, and was not satisfied enough to purchase either one. The more I read about M43, the more excited I became about the format.

    I've been participating in rangefinderforum.com almost exclusively for my photography related web participation over the last few years. My time online for this kind of activity is limited, so I have to choose carefully. My research inevitably led me to this site, which seems to be THE place to discuss M43 :) . I recognize some folks from RFF over here. I am using the same username from RFF here as well (Warren T.).

    After using the G1 exclusively for a couple of outings, I am extremely happy with the camera. I know that I made the right choice in format, and also in the camera (the G1). I already have a Nikon adapter for it to use with my large collection of Nikon glass, however, I found that the "kit" lens is excellent too.

    I will have other questions about my G1 soon, but I will post those in the proper forum.
