was the image quality ok for you ?

More than OK for me!

I began 11 years ago with two Panasonic G3 cameras. I used several lenses:

14-45mm

45mm Macro

20mm f/1.7 (my favorite M43 lens)

Olympus 40-150

In 2015 the LCD became defective on one G3, and I replaced it with Panasonic GX7. Later I "retired" the other G3 in favor of the GX8 with Dual IS which I use with my Panasonic-Leica 100-400mm.

While the advance in sensor technology has improved lots of things - Dynamic Range, higher ISO usage, etc, I don't feel that I "take better pictures" with the newer cameras, and I still have a personal attachment to the photographs I made with the G3.

From time to time I take my remaining G3 out for a spin. Last year I photographed a series at our local park/lake with my 100-400 mounted.

Very nice, and none taken with exotic nor high cost gear.

Peace.

John
