P&Ss are the Panny TZ40 & TZ60.
Lenses owned: EF-S 10-22, EF 50 1.8 Mk1, EF-S 60 Macro, EF-S 18-200 (retained from 50D kit), EF 100-400L, EF Ext 1.4x II & EF Ext 2x II (plus EF 24 f2.8, EF 28-70, EF 70-200 for film EOS bodies), Panny Lumix G 14-140 & G 100-300.

DaveyBee: Hmmm... I'm not convinced! It may well be the most fantastic m4/3 camera in the world, but if I'm going to have to carry a bigger and heavier camera around, I think I'll fall back on my trusty 7D. I love my GH2 because of its size and the fact I that I have travelled with it very successfully across Europe and have some fantastic photos - I will certainly need some convincing on this one, especially at the price (in the UK, we're likely to be looking at around £1000+ body only!). Ho hum...

Can't argue with that, but I still think I'll be keeping my hand in my pocket unless the GH3 turns out to be exceptional, blowing the GH2 and 7D out of the water. At that point I may consider trading the whole lot for one... Somehow, I doubt it'll be that good though!
