    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.

    Roman, thanks for your introduction and welcome. I sincerely doubt you're making "bad photos" but I do understand the learning curve on any new camera. Very smart of you to bide your time and snag that great buy. I'll be looking forward to your involvement here.:biggrin:

    Welcome here!!!
    - E-P1 versus GF1 is a tight game, some like the build-in flash, others IBIS, but are damned good camera's given their compactness, especially icw a pancake lens like for example the 20 mm F1.7.

    Thankfully, while certainly interested, we're not obsessed with kit comparisons here... the photographer is far more important to us :biggrin: :friends:

    Cheers
