... there is an almost inevitable trend in some postings here to suggest that unless you use the most recent release then you are somehow working with less than adequate equipment. I still shoot with a GH2 and like the OP find that at low ISO it produces wonderfully sharp and colourful images. Yes, I'd love to buy a GH3 tomorrow, but my personal finances do not run that far.

For many years in the days of film I shot with a venerable Canon AE1 SLR and resisted the temptation to upgrade it to Canon's latest and greatest offering. I preferred to invest in FD mount lenses and on honing my technique.

That was my first SLR, after I bough an A1, and after I changed to Nikon F3 and FM2. But both brands are good.

I remember to have a fantastic at the time Canon FD 17mm and the 200mm f/2.8. Really good lenses.

While it is often interesting to read about what can be achieved with an Olympus OMD E-M 5 or a Panasonic DMC-GH3, you do not have to invest in these to still become a competent photographer with older m43 equipment.

True, I still use a G2 and a GF1, but I am working more now on pro photography again and I am tempted to get a GH3 and an OMD, or a GH3 and a G5, still have to decide when I can save some money for those, it is a bigĀ investment now for me, because I also like to have the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f/2.8.
