Hello,
I like this post very much! It is great to read from somebody who is also using a camera for many years and does not always need the newest equipment.
I have been using my GH1 since many years and since the camera does not seem to break down, I do not need a new one (I only need one m4/3 camera). However, I have already recommended the G6 because I think it offers a lot of function for a reasonable price.

All the best,
Florian.

Brooks, thank you! A very practical and sensible write-up in a sea of gear hype!

I have a G2 and am looking at the G6 and I am unclear if my existing lens 14-42 and 45-200 will work on the G6. Do you know?
Thanks in advance
Nick

They work just fine. No problems.

Hi Brooks
Having sold my DLSR I am seriously considering purchasing the G6. Like everything I've read about it including the current very low price.
It's available as a kit here in UK with latest 14-42 and 45-150 zooms and I am likely to go for these.
But I was just wondering what lenses you used, and were happy with , with your G6?
Many thanks
Len

I, too, purchased the kit lenses, but I have to say that my recent upgrade to the f2.8 pro series lenses has me aghast at the increase in sharpness, contrast, and detail. Simply said, two of the best lenses I've ever used in my 40+ years of photography. They are the 12-35mm f/2.8 and the 35-100mm f2.8. Both expensive, but if you can swing it, you'll be glad you did the first time you try to make a tack-sharp print. Just my two-cents worth.

Michael Reichmann recommended them to me and boy, was he right!
