I am considering jumping into Micro 4/3rds as follows: Olympus Pen E-PL2 kit with 14-42 lens $550 VF-2 viewfinder $280 Fotodiox Pro adapter, Nikon Lens to MFT Micro 4/3 Four Thirds System $35 1. My primary uses will be documenting my home town on my Photo Walks. I currently use a Canon G-11. See my web page at: Franklin Campbell's Information on Mason, Michigan (USA) 2. Family photos. 3. Close-up coin photography. Samples of the types of photos I want to take are at my web site. I'm planning to rephotograph everything to provide better images. Coins of British India My thoughts on this system: I would prefer the higher quality of 4/3rds over my current P&S, and I find I just don't use my big, heavy Nikon D200. The kit lens would cover a good part of my needs at minimal expense, while lenses like the 9-18 would come later. My coin photography would be with my Nikon macro lenses via adapter where I could use the 14x MF aid of the PL2 for critical focus. The VF-2 would be convenient for tabletop use with its 90degree tilt available. In general I like a viewfinder and would probably use it most of the time in general photography. I'm never really used video. I see lots of fans of Panasonic cameras. Perhaps the GH2 with its built in VF would be a better choice with its higher resolution and tilting screen. The reviews have been good. Honestly, I'm very tempted by the E-PL2 red body and the much mentioned excellent JPEG images straight out of the camera. The Olympus pricing is pretty good, but the VF-2 certainly adds a lot to the cost. I'm assuming I'd get good results without too much inconvenience using my MF Nikons via adapter. Any comments and/or recommendations would be most welcome!
