    Hi all,

    I've been browsing this forum for a few weeks and gathering all the info available. I just overnighted my first Micro 4/3 kit and it should be at my door within 2 hours. I'm way too excited about this.

    Been shooting film forever (still shooting my 500 c/m multiple times per week and love that camera). Shoot a D700 for work related shoots, Leica M6 for fun and when I want a smaller camera.

    Ordered a Panasonic G3 with kit zoom and 14 f/2.5, as well as adapter for my Leica M lenses. My plan is to make this my take everywhere and do everything camera. I'm ready to have some fun.

    Hey,

    I have a D700 and am now the owner of a less than a week old EP3 as my carry all-the-time camera!

    Enjoy your delivery :)

    As an aside, I'd like to thank this forum, there's been a few settings like the SCP I would have never bothered to look for!

    Welcome to the forum Superthumbs! Congrats on the G3 and the Pany 14. That lens focuses superfast and it's virtually silent. You'll definitely enjoy it.

    I also run M lenses on my GH2 from time to time. The excellent EVF makes manual focus much easier.

    Looking forward to seeing your photos!

    I know you already have all that sweet Leica glass, but be careful, browsing the image threads will cause G.A.S.... make sure to stay away from the PL 25/1.4, 20/1.7 and Oly 45/1.8 threads! :biggrin:
