Thanks for the PDF of the reprise image. I have one of your prints of the original so it will be interesting to compare them. I don't have the cash to make any new equipment purchases right now but I've been looking at the Panasonic GX7 or the Sony NEX 7 as my next purchase. I may end up renting each to compare them before buying. I find actually using a camera is the best way to decide. All that test chart stuff in a lab doesn't tell me what it will do for me.

Thanks here too for the PDF! Lovely photo ... hmm, a gift of it to my friend in NY might be in order. :-)

The latest generation of Micro-FourThirds cameras is truly impressive. I saw the Panasonic G6 and GX7, the Olympus E-P5 and E-M1 release announcements—the E-M1 took my interest as it is the best suited to work with the FourThirds SLR lenses I have, alongside my trusty old Olympus E-1. These cameras are simply fantastic, all of them.

(The first photos I'm satisfied with from testing the E-M1 with various lenses are posted on flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/gdgphoto/sets/72157637107203044/ ... just the tip of the iceberg, I'm sure, compared to once I know the E-M1 well and can truly exploit it.)

And yes, there will be new models following on shortly in the pell mell rush to better better more more, etc. That doesn't faze me. I'm still happy shooting with the ten year old E-1, now and then, even if the capabilities of the latest generation are far beyond it. It's how the camera works in my hands, how it lets me see, that are really the critical part of the game... :-)

Be well, and enjoy the G6!
