Hey folks, This is my first post, so a little background is in order. My wife and I both like photography. I have a background with older manual 35mm SLR cameras and have always used Nikon. We have been mostly working on our composition and feel like we are framing photos pretty well at this stage. We get a lot of compliments from our various friends and associates on our photographs. We both currently use Nikon CoolPix point and shoot cameras and now we are ready to move up to a more serious camera and my search has led me to the 4/3 camera format. After much deliberation and taking into account features, image quality and pricing, I have pretty much settled on the Panasonic G2K. Initially I liked the Olympus E-PL2, but the more I think about it the more I think I would like one. I also like the in camera image stabilizatiion of the Olympus. However the G2K is winning out, becaue of the overall value. I have found this one on sale with the lens for $439 new and it sounds like a heck of a deal. Keep in mind that I am also going to buy one just like it for my wife so value is important as well as having the same exact camera so we can help each other with the menus and features. I realize that such a purchase is a fairly personal decision, but I though I would throw this post out there to see if there is anything that I should reconsider. The sale ends tonight at 12:00, so I need to decide by then.
