    I recently picked a used G3 from the FS forum and a used Olympus 17mm 1.8 lens. The G3's are so cheap nowadays, they're practically giving them away. It's probably the cheapest integrated EVF M43 body with a new-ish sensor you can get. Not the best in performance, but a solid camera for the price. Anyways, I decided to take it on a test spin around LA at night! It's not the best at high ISO, but there's a certain grit, sharpness and impreciseness I like about the camera. The AWB is wonky and metering tends to be a little off. I have my eye on the new GX7, but I'll probably wait for those to drop in price. :wink:

    We should all meet, September I'll have lots of free time to hang out! I temporarily left M43 to try out the Nikon 1. Great system, but lacking above 800 ISO. This would make my 3rd G3! I think I'm going to hold out for a bit until I can get my hands on a well priced GX7. I think I could be happy with that body and the 17mm 1.8!
