Why did you buy Micro Four Thirds in the first place?
Aug 13, 2011

We all have a reason for buying our G1's or our E-P1's instead of the most obvious of choices - a Canon or a Nikon (or a Sony), so why did we buy these cameras which at the time of release are always seen as the underdogs, instead of one of the big bad wolf cameras? What was it about the E-P3 that made you want to preorder one, or what made the G3 so special that it was a better choice than the Nikon D7000 or the Sony SLT A55?

I think this is a really important question to consider when we all think about our attitudes towards Micro Four Thirds and what it can't offer, but in the first place there was something that they had that nobody else did for us, so what was it for you?
