Yep... If you've got the original lenses from more than 3 years ago then that there alone is half the problem. The newer versions are much better... Panasonic and Olympus made this a matter of resolving this over the last 2 years or so now so that may be half your problem.

There is something for everyone with Micro Four Thirds, most people will only really need 3 lenses or so in their kit. The only caveat is the lack of zooms well and truly beyond ridiculous in the 100-300 and above. But quite frankly, if you want more than 600mm zoom you've gone a little bit nuts.

The one issue and the only issue that made me consider other options than Micro Four Thirds is that your ISO performance sucks above 1600. That's it... Which can be completely ameliorated by simply buying faster lenses.
