After the demise of Pentax (which I shot for years) I began to look around. I discovered m4/3 and thought I'd give it a go. I picked up a used epl-6 on the bay for a couple of hundred bucks to see if it might be for me. STEEP LEARNING CURVE!!!!! But I was determined and after about a year have decided to go the whole hog. I've lurked here a while and this seems like a great place w/a lot of good info. Magua

Pentax is dead? Again?!? :eek: Hm my K-50 is still working. :p
Nice thing about Lumix gear is the older stuff uses the same odd USB as Pentax, so it's a nice dual system for me. Olympus gear has the still-image-centric rugged 'rep' like Pentax but both will do excellent work. The Lumix learning curve is a bit gentler but newer stuff has menus as thick as Oly.. but no cryptic 3-fish, 1-fish option :laugh:

HA! My K-50 still works as well but it's about to be a goner. It's a boat anchor compared to my (new to me kit.) Great weatherproof beast though. I truly wish Pentax had jumped into the m4/3 consortium instead of spending millions on their own compact, the Q, only to watch it fail. Makes me sad.

Try a Panasonic, the first one in m43 and it felt intuitive from my first day ...
I may...right now I'm still in lens collection mode. You know the old saying...You date bodies but marry your lenses.

Just ignore anything with fish... you'll be fine.
Yes...one fish, two fish, blue fish, screw fish!

Welcome, I've only been here a short while. I've found it to be a nice busy forum which stops it becoming parochial.

Edit: it does give me GAS though :)
Long time sufferer of GAS. In fact you could say I have a condition. (which wouldn't be so bad, if Id bother to sell off some older stuff first!)

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!
