I understand Jonas. Guess I was doing the equivalent in some ways. No, no one would have bought the G1 costing as much as a FF, but the lenses are creeping up there. I paid $1100 for my 45 T/S and $1400 for my 24-70L (I had one of the first so paid an early adopter price but it is good). I'm just not willing to pay comparable prices for lenses for my G1 *smile*. I guess that's what I'm trying to say--the body/14-45 cost me $530. I don't want to pay $1400 for a lens for the camera at this point (though I admit I've put an expensive lens on my used 400D LOL)--maybe in the future as the format matures.
Lisa was on the dpreview forum and was involved in a lot of threads but she may have been banned--at least she disappeared. I understood that she was primarily interested in the video ability of the GH1.
BTW--I was reasonably sure I had seen a 7-14 f/4 in a video last night--the poster was shooting a gold GH1 with 14-140 on it sitting beside a 7-14 f/4 box--but I surely can't find it this morning--so now I wonder if I was dreaming LOL. I believe it was a video. I know there have been several with various lenses--but I was particularly interested to see that lens used. Looks as though many people in Japan preordered or got into the stores immediately to buy those GH1s.
