Hey there A recent post on what was your first m43 camera got me to be interested in what got "you" into m43. And this year also marks 10 years of m43, so I wanted to ask the question. I expect that its different for everyone, and probably different as the m43 system has evolved. I realise there is a pair of threads for Oly and Panasonic, but to be honest to me it doesn't matter which brand you like. So I thought I'd ask it here, for anyone else who wanted to put in their story. For me it was a bit of an evolution which started with an experiment to get a lighter weight travel camera which (I hoped) would be the equal (or near enough) to my EOS 20D. I'd used a Nikon Coolpix 5000 (I'm not a brand kind of guy) as my "travel camera" and had taken my Canon with me often enough as well. On a trip to India I found that I often left the Canon in the hotel when out walking and thought to myself what's the point of having it if I don't carry it. At about that time the Panasonic G1 was released and I became quite interested in it for its weight advantage. I'd used the 43rds cameras that Olympus sold (like the E410) and like them. I didn't have any problem with the sensor being a bit smaller than APS-C, but as I'd come from full frame film EOS (and Pentax MX and OM-1) could not really come to terms with the quite small viewfinder, it just wasn't sufficient for identifying focus. To me the G1 (and its EVF) made that limitation of 43 no longer an obstacle. Since then I've sold all my Canon EF stuff and have only some film cameras, with the m43 serving all my other needs. The development in the last 10 years has added a rich vista of lenses which have made m43 a viable system. Since then the system has expanded and its suited pretty much all of my needs and more. I have lenses to choose from and bodies too, not to mention legacy lenses which can be adapted. I occasionally consider other systems, but right now in what I need of a camera its meeting all my needs. So, what got you into it?
