    So another quarter of year and another camera body , an other sale and an other impulsive decision to buy the newest PEN or now OM-D of GX series Pansonic body.So how many of us have already planned what to sell to get this newest offering from Olympus ? I am sure GAS is hitting the highest level during the last few weeks ..hahahah.
    I will get OM -D body and I have been waiting for . Olympus has fulfilled my MFT wish list and I will keep this with my EPL2 for the next 3 years minimum . Now please share whats going on in ur mind? Whats giving u sleepless nights .
    NEX 5N ?:confused: NEX 7?:confused:
    Panasonic GX1?:confused:
    Olympus OM-D ?:confused::confused:
    ?Or wait for GH3?:confused::confused:

    Nothing photographic keeps me up at night. As far as gear, I won't be buying any new bodies unless the OM-D or GH3 offer major advances over my GH2, which I don't expect.

    Bhuppinder2002, in another thread you tell someone to
    and here you start a thread about new camera choices keeping you up at night? Are you the only person who is allowed to obsess about gear?

    I lose sleep worrying about not getting a good nights sleep. And spider bats. And zombies.

    I don't worry much over cameras to come, but I sometimes lose sleep worrying about losing my existing cameras. Thankfully I sleep with them all in my bed with me so they stay safe and warm.

    Only time I have sleepless nights is when I order a camera/lens online and it's on the way.

    I would be lying if I didn't say "OM-D." However to be fair I don't sleep well generally :wink:

    I am just having a little bit of fun . I am not the only one .Everyone can do that . I am sure many of us are eying Olympus OM-D for different reasons .Some of us are still not convinced that MFT is the system for them .We are spoiled with so many choices and thus more confused . I get only sleepless nights when I am on my night shift and see patients ..thats all .Nothing else gives me sleepless nights .

    MrDough you are a prototype of a GAS patient and we need to try new treatment on you. You need extensive camera deaddiction and rehab program hahhah. I would suggest you to move to Australia and stay somewhere in Cenral Australia where there is no major city near by .We will disconnect ur internet and u will be given only one camera body of ur choice and few lenses .. thats it ..

    I am also thinking the same way but I needed a weather sealed body , VF , tilt screen mainly .It will offer IQ better or similar to EP3 and thats enough for my needs . I am not into so called low light area .

    I'm doing nuffin - from May onwards I'll be spending 6 months in Europe, Nepal and India, so I'm buying absolutely nothing (unless I sell some of my Pentax glass to get a 45/f1.8...)

    Hopefully by the time I get back the OM-D/X-Pro lust will have cooled :smile:

    I don't care much anymore as my kit is complete. I have no plans to buy anything photographic related this year (and probably next year). I also just got a new, very busy job and will only have time to actually take pictures and use what I already have. And I will be giving up on PP which is mostly waste of time anyway (great OOC jpegs is an absolute must, IMO).
