Hi, I'm no pro, photography is a hobby of mine. But just recently I came to realize that I didn't enjoy shooting with my Canon 7D any more. I had missed too many great photo opportunities because of the weight and I had been leaving it at home more and more. So i did a little homework which led me here - where I learned about the GX1 and OMD-EM5. I bought them both (liked them both) but ended up returning the GX1 and sticking with the OMD-EM5 because of the EVF, tilting screen, and good looks. I have sold all of my Canon gear, lenses, flash, large camera bags all of that stuff except my small 4 Million Dollar Home which seems to be a great fit for the OMD-EM5 with included flash attached and the Olympus grip that I'm waiting to take delivery of. Now I just need to decide if I should get a new flash or the Panasonic 20mm next ~ getting new toys can be so much fun and thanks to Olympus I am excited about photography again and look forward to shooting with my new OMD-EM5.
