    Snow is here in the UK. It can only mean Xmas is round the corner and I'm thinking about getting a Pen. Possibly the E-PL3.

    My main kit is still 4/3, with an E-3 and a fair amount of lenses and accessories to go with it (I won't bore you with the details) and as much as I like it, I cannot help but look at how much smaller everything is in the m4/3 world. Not to forget that the OM-D is quite a sexy beast !

    Apart from that, I've been an Olympus user since my dad gave me his old OM-2 when he upgraded to an OM-4 (not Ti yet in those days). So over the years I have used OM-2, OM-2SP, OM-4Ti, E-20, E-1, E-3, E-620.

    I still have a few collectors, like Pen FT, rare OM kit (macro...) and even two Six/Chrome Six from the 40s/50s.

    Catch you later !

    In my opinion the best thing in m4/3rds world are the lenses ... only a very few, mind you.
    Buy the mZuiko 45mm and find a cheapo body to stick behind it.
    Next year the prices on the new sensor stuff will be tempting.

    (The best things in the 4/3rds world are also the lenses, but a whole different approach to them.)

    Welcome francois, also from a snowy Essex.

    I have the E-PL3, and it's a great little camera, especially for outdoors, or well lit shots. I have recently added the OM-D to this for its fantastic high-ISO performance, making low light shots better.
