well, almost. I've been in POTN and especially dpreview (RomanB) forums for about 5 years and see some familiar faces (so to speak) here as well. Amin, Brian, I've enjoyed reading your posts elsewhere before and will surely do here. Well, after waiting for a 1.5 years for a perfect affordable m43 cam I decided I should pass the learning curve first and so E-P1 is snached on ebay. I doubt photokina will affect the price much, $300 I think is a bottom for another year. Panny 20/1.7 was in my plans since the first samples were on the net. GF1 + 20/1.7 is much cheaper but, despite being a Canon DSLR user for 6 years, or, maybe, because of it, I'm a big fan of IBIS idea. I live in NY area (Brooklyn at present) and the middle of the summer is a slow time with all the heat, humidity and haze and most of the flowers gone, which gives me ample time to make bad photos until I get used to the new way of shooting.
