Oops, Mod, can you please put this in the proper location. I don't know how to delete a post or I don't see that option.

I agree, one forum for m43 with maybe sub forums for each brand but the fact is we mostly talk about lenses which can be used across the brands.

On the GF-6 ... I say meh ... doesn't do anything the E-PL5 can't do except wifi and nfc which you can get with the free Toshiba wifi sd card when you buy an E-PL5 or with an EYE-FI.

There has not been a GF model worth owning since the GF-1.

I thought I heard that the last one was pretty good . . . .

I'm sure I'd be thrilled with the image quality, but not having the option of adding a viewfinder is the big dealbreaker for me with the gf6. It would be a hell of a step up for a lot of people though. I kind of like the look of the black one too, not that that would decide it.

My comment above is looking at the GF series in a way it probably should no longer be looked at.

The GF-1 was an advanced, fully-featured model aimed at serious users, who were disappointed as each follow-up model dummied the line down a little more each time, to the point today the GF series is more of an interchangeable lens point & shoot.

Users of the GF-1 today are better served with the GX-1 and it's much nicer accessory EVF.

with that in mind (P&S upgrade) I'd rather have the PM1. Of course, in three months the gf6 will be 200 bucks because Panny will have released the gf10 by then.

They're definitely the gorilla of Micro Four-Thirds group in terms of rapid releases and price drops.

Hopefully some time in there a GX-2 makes its' way out. It's about time for it.
