    I did it today, after weeks and months of investigations, surfing different forums and multiple threads about M43, I went into my photo store in Vienna today and had a look at the EP2 with kit zoom lens and EVF. After playing with it some 30 minutes and trying the menus as well as the EVF, I knew this would be the M43 camera for me and bought it, actually for a pretty good price here in Europe :D

    I love this EVF, I do not know why, but I find it so much better than the EVF of the G1 and GH1 respectively. I also became quite fast friend with the menus - somehow different than Panasonic, but not worse, maybe even a bit more clear for my way of thinking.

    First shots inside my office with really low light worked pretty well, shooting in RAW so far and up till ISO 1000 the results are very good in my opinion - without any noise removal turned on.

    AF speed and accuracy is ok for me, I do not expect more from such a camera and lens and I was told it will even get better with the 1.7/20, which I will buy next pretty soon.

    Will post some images over the next weeks, as soon as I get a bit more out into the field and produce more interesting shots ;)

    Overall I am very happy that I finally moved into M43, for me this is the ideal companion to my H3D MF system and I am not sure if I really will use my A900 too often in the future :rolleyes:

    I already ordered a Leica M to M43 adapter so I can start using my M lens collection on this camera, especially I am looking for how good the 1.4/50 ASPH and the 2/70 APO will work :cool::smile:

    Congratulations Peter, it's a beautiful camera - I'm sure you will grow to love it even more as you master the many controls.

    Cheers

    not your business
    hi peter, (hi = habe d' Ehre)

    just like my experience with the E-P1 menu system.
    while i was not unhappy with the G1, i got more familiar with the E-P1 in a shorter time ...

    enjoy your nice camera!
    servus,
