I don't want to change lenses...In my primary outfit I'll have 2 cameras hanging in front ; my Panasonic GH1 w 7-14mm,and my Canon SX40HS -my fun framing lens/camera,GH1 is my super-duper wide;and now I'll have the GF3 ...either in the bag...or behind my back-hanging.It's on the way to me - Camera body and battery + strap only;So I ordered 2 batteries and a charger...all costing ... $125.00 shipped , for all.I hope I'm OK - I can't seem to stop buying cameras.!Very,VERY ; happy day.! / LarryI know this camera is slightly dated - but how did any of you guys like it?It's 4/3's sensor - how bad can it be...?!Gotta be good.And I'm catapulting into the future ... with touch screen.I'm a swivel screen guy,but - being this is a third wheel...it will do just fine - and I can take it out on it's own.

..."take it out on it's own"!!!!! Trouble.!I did it again...Besides using the GF3 on my 8mm lens...I just purchased a "NEW" 14mm pancake lens - WITH kool metal shade/hood.Way kool !Didn't get the camera yet - slow shipping;but,I'll do pics with both the 8mm and the 14mm.I hope to go on a travel with the 14mm.Guess - I'm very happy.LarryOh,14mm from a USA dealer...with both caps and hood for $177.00 shipped.!

Got a camera in the mail - thought it was my second Canon S90(first did not work)...and I was shocked to find - when taking it out of the box - it was my GF3 !!It is TINY.A 4/3's camera the size of a Canon S90 point and shoot.!Well - purchased it to go on my 8mm.Have some fun pics.No swivel screen - but,I do very much like this camera.On first shot - that's my hand in the top right...gotta keep in mind how wide this lens is...Second one is a happy HIP(replacement) portrait.With 8mm.3rd and 4th are fun/creative PP shots.Gonna be a great camera with my 14mm pancake on it.*That FF self portrait ,lens is like 2 inches from my nose.(8mm)

I want you guys to know - I passed up an awesome Panasonic G1 /great condition...for $112.00 shipped !I opted to stay stayed on my Panasonic GF3...being I can get double useage;(with my 8mm - also pull it out to use with my 14mm pancake lens).And; it's a better fit in my #1 main bag.I could have used the G1 for 6 months and resold it for same money - or more !But ; 15 digital cameras - and not so much photo time...Good night Nikonian world.Larry
