I had a film camera, the Nikon FE, from 1979 to 2005.

Then I got a P&S camera, a Canon A620 with 7,2MP. It still delivers remarkably good pictures in good light.

Then mFT opened the possibility to use my legacy lenses and get a camera not bigger than the Nikon FE. So in 2011 I got the G1, because it went with the 14-45, for € 380.

And this is the camera I use. Well, sometimes I take the G2, I bought as a back up.

Sometimes I wonder, whether light might not be as often blown out with a more recent sensor. And in winter I wish for less noise at ISO 800. But otherwise, I still like the output of the 12MP sensor.

And I can't see much progress in the G3 my wife uses.
