Well, as the thread starter, I'd be perfectly happy to open it up to include all Panasonic m4/3 cameras. A lot of the menu functions are very similar between models, so can't see any drama there.
Not so sure about including Olympus though. I'll say it straight up -I have nothing at all against Oly cameras or their owners, no offense intended, but the menu system seems quite different, and may tend to confuse things. A disclaimer at the start of any Olympus related post should sort that out though, but could be a bit of a pain for the poster.
Happy to see photos taken with Oly gear, the EXIF data usually makes that clear. Anyway, I'm happy to leave it up to the group to decide which way they want to go, even including Olympus discussions if that's the general consensus
As said elsewhere here I'm an Olympus user and I'd second the stick Only to Panasonic.
Keep it pure.
True Blue Panasonic as we'd say here.
I'll keep following and if need ask and who knows it may see me add G9 to my repertoire.
Being interested in the 100-400mm I can imagine, expect (?) it would talk and cooperate more or more fully with a G9 than Olympus.
Hence my interest in this thread
