That's what I've heard. For folks who want a smaller size and don't want to carry two lenses around and swap them, a single 10x zoom lens that stays permanently on the camera would be a major attraction of the GH1.

Sky-

But that limits the reach to just 280mm and the no real ISO capability is still not addressed. For the small size difference I would rather have the Kx or the E-620 and save money.

I have used a Nikon D300 with a 18mm-120mm lens for a couple of years. Unfortunately I was laid off from my job and sold the camera. Now I cannot afford the D300, looking for something cheaper but great quality for travel, sports, and everyday camera use.

To get more attention for your specific question, I think you'd be better off starting your own topic.

What's your budget? Do you still have any of your Nikon gear?

vsanzbajo-

Well then, the Nikon D-90 makes real sense then, as you are familiar with Nikon equipment, menus and the like. Your camera is your creative tool!

As a creative tool, the D-90 far exceeds, the Panasonic.
