I just sent my refurbed mini and VF2 back to Cameta for the date/time issue. Kind if disappointed that a known problem like that escaped the refurbishment process. That being said, I'm open to suggestions for a replacement. Between the date/time issue, and the reported ibis issues, I'm a little hesitant on getting another mini. Viewfinder is mandatory, so if it's another Pen it's going to have the Vf2 on it most of the time. I'm new to m43 (selling off my Canon gear) and my main criteria is size and weight (hence the mini purchase). Not a big fan of PP so everything I hear about the Oly jpegs sounds right up my alley. Thinking that I'd rather have a built in flash rather than having to remove the viewfinder in order to use flash. For that reason I'm leaning towards the Ep3. How much bigger than the mini is it? Significant, or not enough to matter? Logic tells me the Pansonic G3 is the best choice due to the fact that it has both a built in EVF and a flash, but Id rather go with the range finder styling as opposed to the faux slr styling. How's the Panasonic Gx1? Is the Panny accesory EVF comparable to the VF2? Any help and suggestions is welcome.
