Re: Any Former Olympus Shooters? Have E-PM1, Considering Cheap V1 Kit

I have used various Olympus camera and Panasonic M4/3.  The two Oly's were the EPL-1 & 3, the Pany's were G1,2, & most recently the G3.  I did not keep the Oly's very long as I did not enjoy the lack of a viewfinder; and since I am in my 70's holding a camera at arms length is not conducive to motion free shooting.

I enjoyed the Panasonic G series but wanted something more compact and even lighter with a view finder.  I do not shoot much at all with a flash so I will not miss it. The only addition I may make to the V1 is the 18.5mm lens as I am impressed with what I see represented on the web and in various reviews for this lens.
