Re: What is all this "moving" talk about?

As a current GF1 owner - and after being dissappointed with the GF3 announcement (mostly from a controls perspective) - This Oly announcement is a very pleasant surprise - and the lens announcement - is possibly the best news of all. 45mm is the focal length that I have been pining for - and I prefer to shoot with primes - for their sharpness and low light abilities. So perhaps I should consider a move from Panasonic, although there are rumours of another panasonic announcement for the enthusiast so waiting a bit seems the most sensible option.

Oly and Panny are part of the same u 4/3 system. Pick whatever body meets your needs and use whatever lens you want on it. Why "switch" anything?

You guys sound like a bunch of Nikon/Canon users!


Don't you know some people think m43 Talk should be split between O & P? That makes a lot of sense, because ... well, it just does.

Best to batten down the hatches and ride out the Great Oly Announcement Wave of '11. The almanac says there be a Panasonic Announcement Gale upon us this fall. Troubled times, these are.
