I'm a newbie with a GH2 and am looking to take a class to learn more about photography. I found a recommended class close to me. I emailed the teacher about using my GH2, and here was his response:

"This is a Micro four thirds camera, a camera more disposed to video shooting than still photography. While I teach the Digital SLR in my class this camera is not covered due to the difference in focusing with a video auto focus system and an optical viewfinder system found in the DSLR."

My question is, is that true? Am I going to have a difficult time finding a photography class that will teach the GH2? And I guess related, any recommendations for classes/books on learning photography/the GH2? Thanks!

Sounds like a class where you do not want to be learning from that teacher anyway if it's just a class on photography vs. it being a class on how a DSLR works. Sounds a little bit like an uninformed idiot, too.
