    I'm thinking of getting back into serious photography and was wondering what folks think of the above camera.
    In days gone by I used an OM1 and liked the feel and performance of the camera but I don't really want to have to lug a cumbersome bit of kit around with me all the time and thought the likes of the GF1 would be a good compromise.
    So, what do folks think of my choice or what suggestions have you got?

    I've got a GF2. First class bit of kit. They have developed to GF5 I think by now, so the GF1 is pretty old. The GF2 addressed some shortcomings but the micro 4/3rd lens system is a great compromise for a keen amateur. I simply dumped my Nikons after got the GF2. Half the size and good optics (Leica designed, jap built)
