I recently picked up a Panasonic Lumix G1 so I could use my old (but nice) OM lenses, and m42 lenses with adapters Grin

Nice one Josh, there`s some very good deals around.

Me. a Panasonic G2 with Kit Lens, a real bargain, camera and lens was a present, I then applied for a free 5 year warranty and copy of lightroom 3, a promotion that`s now ended.

Last week I traded enough bits and pieces I no longer used to purchase 2 EPL1`s but fancied that new x10 from Fuji, it sits very nicely in the bag beside the G2 Smile

I have a couple of lens adapter for both my old Nikkor and old Zuiko lenses.

About 3 weeks ago I purchased the Olympus Pen E PM1 and I really like the results we have been getting. I since purchased the 40-150 lens and the electronic viewer.
It is a good value for someone like me going from a P & S to interchangeable lenses. Very light and easy to put in pocket with standard lens.
Two complaints:
The video button sometimes gets under the thumb and you accidentally start the video. It takes some getting used to the menu system, but after use it gets easier and faster to change settings

I have a beautiful new Fujifilm X100 and an awesome old Sony DSC-R1 which I would never part with !!! My 5D feels a little left out sometimes :o)

I've just purchased a PEN E-P3 after selling the E-P2 which I've been using for almost 2 years. I use it with the EVF 2 and the panasonic 20/1.7 and olympus 45/1.8 primes. Would love to add the olympus 12/2 to the set up.

It's the only digital camera I own - I'll not be reinvesting in a DSLR system. I love the way that digital has created the micro4/3 system (& other mirrorless outfits) from the ground up, whereas DSLRs 'evolved' slowly from their analogue film ancestors.

Same here, I`ve already started off loading my dslr kit, all I have left is an E3 and a few lenses, I`ve kept my old Olympus 35SP for the odd batch of slides or negatives.

A good move, have fun.

Cheers Paul, the funny thing is that the X100 makes me want to do something I havent really done with my 5d (or the R1 for that matter) ... ditch the tripod and get spontaneous !!!!

Got a GF2. Got it cause I wanted a camera that I could carry around every day, D700's a bit big for that kind of thing. Absolutely love the GF2 and find it very capable.

I have an E-PL3 and a GF2 which I use for making movies of the blues bands I go to see. You can't adjust the sound levels on the Olympus so it overloads and distorts the sound badly.

I use 14-140, 28mm 2.5 and 20mm f1.7 lenses, all Panasonic. I was going to sell the Panasonic but have kept it for movie use only.

I have a complete Pentax K5 outfit but with the weight of the lenses and all I am thinking of flogging the lot and going for a GH2. It'd be great to have one set of lenses for use on all my cameras and the new 16mp sensor, while apparently not quite up to APS-C, is getting close. I use my cameras for stock photography mainly, so I have no need of the utlra-quality that many photographers seem to want, just good commercial quality. I can get that on my GF2 or E-PL3 so it should be a cinch on a GF2.

I just wish they did a few micro zooms with wider apertures.

Lemmy have you tried the Olympus stereo mic set, its expensive but i believe its quite good.

The GH2 is good, faired quite well when tested against a 60D on a video test.

Its doing its job then Smile

I picked up its baby sister to make me do things I would not do with a dslr or m4/3.

Unfortunately, it's a waste of space. If you have to rely on automatic sound leveling, you are back to the days of the cassette recorder. Some sounds will overload it and you get terrible grating and distortion.

You have to pay a lot of money even for a dedicated movie camera to get adjustable sound levels. It's the sound equivalent of having no ISO adjustment.

The Panasonic has great adjustable sound levels with wind noise suppression adjustment as well.

That makes sense Lemmy.

I added a few interesting links to this thread and guess there recording the sound by separate means.

I now have a Panasonic GH2 with only Panasonic lenses, 14-140, 100-300, and 45 macro. I did consider buying the 20mm but I'm not sure that I would use it much. I can cover an awful lot with the lenses I have.
I don't have a dslr any more, my only other camera is a Panasonic LX5.
