I apologize if there is already a thread for this but I couldn't find it. I was curious to find out what folks' photography background is, and most importantly how they ended up in the m4/3 camp for equipment! For myself, I've been serious about my photography for about 10 years now. I was always a Nikon shooter, who slowly upgraded through the dSLR line (and usually stayed 1 generation behind and bought used). I'm primarily a hobbiest. I teach a beginners crash course in photography basics as an after hours course through my workplace, and occaisionally did some portraits and weddings when time allowed. But my wife owns her own business which has really taken off the past couple years, and I have 3 kids under age 9, so I rarely have time to go out and shoot unless it's of them. One day I took my kids to an indoor playground and saw someone with a gf3 and 14mm. I knew of the m4/3 cameras but never really paid too much attention to them. I decided to look into one for a travel camera as I had sold my canon s95 due to never liking the controls. The rest is history. I went on a trip, my d700 never left my bag, and sold it soon after for an OMD. No regrets at all! Had I not run into that person with the m4/3 camera, I would still have my d700 which was rarely with me anymore!
