Your's is probably the best post in this thread, all the nitpicking by all the Gearheads, does not make any difference at all,ever since I bought my G1 I have wondered how long Panny would last in the Camera biz without a visual presence in the retail stores, except for a few low end P&S cameras,in my town ,abt 60k I have only met 1 person using a M43 Camera, it seems clear that most people simply are not aware of M43 or simply don't care either way, there is no indication that m43 is going to be a force to be reckoned with, hope I'm wrong, time will tell.

Ken, I was also impressed by Reg's response. To a large extent, we at DPR forums don't wag the dog.

BUT: we can be the seeds of change, if we care to. We show our families and friends the gear we've downsized (or upsized) to and the results we get and they have reason to pause and consider. Some of the seeds will fall on fertile ground. Others will get washed away by the tide.

BTW, if you live in my town (Chilliwack), that would make 3 m4/3 users!

I know at least 5 m4/3 owners who are in my circle. One is a camera shop owner and photographer. He is a licensed Nikon dealer (with lit sign on the front of store) and has a d800 but he uses the E-M5 for nearly everything because it is compatible with so many lenses. The day I visited he had just received the E-M1.

I think the E-M1 has been a great seller despite it's price. i haven't purchased one yet, but my son loves his and my brother-in-law bought one who lives in TN. There are a lot out there. I'm not sure if I would recognize every m4/3 out there since some are VERY small.

Make it a Great day!
