Based on your needs....

You made a very smart purchase.

The folks that are satisfied with FourThirds "state of art circa 2008" share your viewpoint They also include people who never shoot in low light, and never need high resolution shots.

I used to be one of them, until I felt the urge to do some night shooting. So I filled that need by adding a Sony A55 and two Sony kit lenses. But I still do most of my shooting with my E-30, E-P1 and E-PL2, because 95% of the time, because the Olympus cameras get the better results under most conditions.

For many things, FourThirds is hard to beat. For others... there are other options available.

Good luck with your new camera. You will love it.
