Why do you always have to get personal Paul? It ruins threads you know and puts off people new to the forums genuinely seeking advice. I've been talking about the push dial all along, no goal posts changed, you've simply misunderstood.

Most of us have been talking about cameras and their relative strengths and weaknesses. The EPM2 has features the GX1 lacks, but in my opinion it is overall the better camera.

You seem unable to brook any disagreement from your opinion without resorting to childish name calling like 'fanboy' and that last silly remark about the GF5. You really should be above this sort of thing Paul - you can be considerate and helpful in the right mood, but frankly you're coming over as rather petulant.

I'm really inclined to ignore you further, because when the argument becomes personal, it reflects well on neither of us.

So I'll leave this thread alone with well wishes for Lewis and your new camera - I hope you'll be happy with your purchase.

I don`t believe I have called anyone here a fan boy, although I have come close Smile

I use both Olympus and Panasonic, I merely pointed out the GX1 advantages, then a long list of its disadvantages.

In many respects it is not a great deal different to my little GF2 (that I picked up for its 14mm lens and hackable video modes) the GX1 a good little street camera with the right lens, its built well and handles well, but beyond that its dated and limited in functionality.

None of these little camera`s are particularly good in the hand Lewis, the GX1 has a bit of a grip and that is fine for small hands.

What ever you go for, pick up the ER case and use just the bottom half, this improves handling no end, and these little thumbs up grips are very useful as well, a fiver well spent.
