Those all seem to sell on eBay. Congrats, did you do any remodeling lately?

Come on James. I think Bob is on to something here. It doesn't hurt a bit to switch.

It may not be right for everyone, nothing is, but my G3 is already getting dusty.

No, I'll stick with the E-3, feels good in my hand. When I had the PL-2 I had to work at keeping it steady, too small for my hands. Of course the M1 looks to be a little larger that the PL-2, maybe easier to hold. No place around here you can look and hold one so..................

I understand. I have small hands. That's why the Panny G3 was attractive to me. At the time one of the smaller MFTs.

Liking smaller cameras, I was disappointed when I first saw the EM-1's (comparably) huge grip. Not so anymore. I've come to love it. It feels secure in my hand and I can envision taking photos one-handed in a pinch.

We'll see.

Probably not with a 50-200 on it.

Congrats Folob. I'll bet you are pretty excited. I'm thinking prices will drop on the M5 before too long.
