Hello everyone! My name is Dave. I live a small suburb of Chicago, IL. I just picked up my first Micro 4/3rds camera about a week ago - a Panasonic GF1. I love it! I still shoot Canon DSLR's, but I'm quickly finding I love using this camera for everything I can. I don't even mind the "higher noise" on 4/3rds. Honestly, to me it seems about the same as my 40D but even a little cleaner since there's no banding. It definitely cleans up easier in LR3 to me. I even leave some of the noise in since it looks like film grain pattern. Anyway, looking forward to participating. I spent a lot of time in a popular Canon forum, but now that I'm using my Panny so much I'm glad to find a new forum!
