I'm new to MFT having purchased an Oly E-P3 and 12mm 2 weeks ago. Increasingly I had found that more often than not my large nikon DSLR kit just stayed at home in the dry box because it was too heavy and too cumbersome. I wanted something small and light that I could carry around the streets of KL and get some shots of KL street life. I lusted after a Leica for months and even got to the point of loading my "shopping cart" at a Leica dealer but I just couldnt justify the price and nor was I willing to completely sell my Nikon gear to make a leap of faith to buy the Leica kit. So 2 weeks ago I made a somewhat impulsive purchase of an Oly E-P3 with kit zoom. Initially I was disappointed with the slow aptures of the kit zoom so I went back to purchase a Panny 20mm but instead purchased the new Oly 12mm. Wow! I'm loving this combo. It has really out some fun back into photography and reminds me of years ago when I used to have a Nikon F3 and 50mm. I loved that camera because it was small, light and really gave me a sense of satisfaction when I got a great shot. I'm still just a beginner in MFT and still am questioning whether I could solely rely on it as my travel camera for trips around SE Asia but for now I'm really enjoying just snapping away with it. I love this forum. Great information and insights into MFT.
