    Hello,

    I am Philip and I am new to this forum. However, I have had a M43 camera for several years now. I started with a GF1 and loved the camera; however, it was damaged during a hiking trip with my daughter. I then purchased a GF2; but, I really didn't find it to be a suitable replacement for the GF1. I was upset to loose the remote plug. I then purchased a G3 which I still use today. However, I find that the EVF is not much use to me. Whenever the GX1 replacement comes out I will likely purchase that as my next camera.

    I use the M43 camera mostly for backpacking and cycling trips. This year I hiked over 700 miles of the PCT; and last year I bicycled across the US. Next year I will likely cycle across europe. The G3 is just the right size to fit in a handlebar bag or carry on a backpacking trip.

    Philip
