Panasonic GF-3 launches me into the micro 4/3 realm, advice?

First off, hi guys! I'm new to dpreview's forums, haven't really been active in a photog forum since I bought a Nikon D40 back in '05. In those days I held forth at dcresource.

My long-in-the-tooth Nikon needed upgrading for a long time, and I never made a substantial lens investment, so when I found an awesome deal on the Panasonic (clearance plus display at Walmart, ended up being $183 for zoom lens kit), I jumped to the more compact world of micro 4/3rds!

My question is, any beginner's advice for someone who's reasonably familiar with photography, but new to this particular body and system?
