    I'm just going to buy a new m4/3 camera after travelling down the road of FF Canon and realising that I was using my phone camera or my compact more often than the main camera.

    Just waiting for the money I got for the 5D body then off to buy a GX1 with a couple of lenses :)

    Looking forward to be carrying a great camera at much less size and weight

    I also went with FF (first Nikon D600 returned it for oil problems and then bought a D700). The Nikon D700 is a great camera but really too heavy and in the meantime I kept my Epl-3, now I'm making my decision to definitly sell the D700 or keep it but use it only in particular situations.

    Thanks all, just got home after getting the GX1, what a lovely little camera. The whole thing is lighter than the lens I usually had on my camera :)

    Touchscreen may take a bit of getting used to though, looking forward to getting out there and playing

    Edit: just noticed my avatar, that's a really old one think I may have to change that ;)

    welcome back, the micro 4/3s is just about the best compromise in terms of size and ability to produce quality images comparable to the DSLR standards. gx1 is a bargain, good buy!

    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the place I was before
