    Hi all,

    I was thinking to get a new point and shoot camera.. and was looking at the LX5 at first.. after seeing the Panasonic Direct deal for GF2, I decide to go for GF2 instead of LX5 (since is the same price)... but I have been waiting for 2 months... finally... 2 days ago, I saw the sale at Adorama (GF2 body + 14-42 / 45-200 for 650$). I decide to cancel my order from Panasonic and buy it from Adorama.. can't wait to receive it this week.

    Nice to meeting you guys !!

    I'm not into the big igloos. I drive a sleek, fast dog team. What do I need a big igloo for just to sleep? I'd rather pull up in style with 12 roaring huskies revved for a race.

    Welcome from Edmonton, BTW!

    The polar bear is just my work vehicle, when I need to haul all my studio photo equipment around. ;)

    Well take off, eh?

    We joke about all this, but the sad truth is that some people really believe that we snowmobile home on the tundra. Oh well, strong dollar and a good time to buy gear I think.

    If that were the truth, then I would never give up an E-5, E-3, or E-1 for a PEN. The weather sealing and glove-usable size would be indispensable.

    Nonetheless, I really should look at getting a new E-5 by winter time. ;)

    I live in Winnipeg... Where it truly is winter almost all the time! Never drive a snowmobile but would not buy a car with out an xdrive.
    Just bought an ep2 now looking for some glass to go with it... Which is how I ended up finding this forum... Looks great.
    Fantastic job to the admins, moderators and community!
    Cheers
