Goodbye Canon, hello Olympus!
 
I finally sold the remainder of my Canon rig last week, and am in the "Olympus waiting room" now. I have the Olympus OM-D, the Oly 12-50, and the Oly 45 1.8 on the way.

Any other micro 4/3 users here?

I'll be honest the mirrorless platforms are very tempting, but I started with SLRs and they've always been good to me, and I honestly don't think I could switch. It would just be too much of a transition, and I would always feel as though I forgot half my kit when shooting.

LOVE my OMD. the 45 1.8 is great I'm currently rockin' the pana leica 25 1.4. Most of my smugmug stuff is either shot with OMD or the Fuji X100.

I went from shooting film in my ungrad during the 90's to mirrorless so DSLR seems odd to me. I love WYSIWYG.

I only shoot Leica peasants these days.

How is the Pan/Leica???ive heard that it is a match made in heaven, but a bit slower. Do you read Steve Huff's blog?

The Pan/Leica 25mm is a great lens. I also have the 20mm. To be honest I like the FOV of the 20mm more but the focus speed on the 25mm is much better. I'd like to check out the new Oly 17mm though. I tend to love wide angle lenses. I usually watch Steve's youtube videos and read his blog occasionally. Another member on here waas just pming me about their new OMD. Alot of people have been making the switch to mirrorless because of the OMD and I think the new GH3 to going to convert even more people to mirrorless. I have to say kudos to Sony for this ad:

while not a micro 4/3 I am really enjoying my Nex-5n, love how it handles high ISO (3200, etc).

I was toying with the idea of picking up a Pentax mirrorless rig to replace my P&S nikon as an extra camera the price of lenses though seemed rather high on that platform
