    Who has the most number of m4/3rds cams?

    With a plethora of m43rds cams out there from Pana and Oly, I am curious as to who has the most of them at the moment?

    I have the G1 (a few samples) and the GH2 (few). Skipped all the iterations in between and after. Waiting for the GH-3.

    HI Vivek
    I have two . . . a Black OMD, and a G1x, which is currently on ebay, and which will be replaced by a silver OMD.

    Just this guy you know

    Three here......a G1, GH2 and black OMD. I've never been interested in the GF format cameras because I prefer having an eye level viewfinder built into the body.

    I said 4, but on closer reading should have said 3.

    Currently have G1 (x2), GF1 and GH2. Had a G3 that I recently sold.

    I'm also waiting to see what the GH3 will be. Might need one.

    GH1 and GH2 - Initially purchased both for video work (and still my primary use for both). I've really been getting into still photography lately though, I love it.

    I've been interested in getting one of the really small m4/3 cameras like the Olympus Pen or Panasonic GF3, just to be able to travel as light as possible. Has anyone used both? Which do you prefer?

    G1, G3, EM5 and looking forward to the GH3.
    Well, not really - I'd like an M10 better ...

    All the best

    Actually embarrassed to say four LOL. I have my original G1, GF1 plus aux. EVF, G3 and now my silver OMD. I "mean" to sell them but never get around to it, sadly. I will probably look for someone to donate the G1 to plus the 14-42 that came with my G3 (have the original 14-45 plus now the Oly 12-50 so well covered in that zoom range).

    Reading this Vivek . . . I'm not sure that counts as 2 - seems to me to be a few samples x2 . . . so how many do you have exactly?

    Re: Who has the most number of m4/3rds cams?

    Hi Jono,

    A very belated, happy, big Six O to you (just learned from reading another thread)!

    3 G1s (discounting the first I totalled) out of which only one is as received. The others modified to do UV and IR and the like.

    2+ GH-2s.

    Although, the NEX' may replace the m4/3rds cams for a variety of uses, it seems.

    A pity that Pana did not make the GX1 with an integrated EVF, otherwise I would have bought in to that.
    I am still looking out for a very compact (built in EVF and all) m4/3rds to use some of the very compact manual lenses I have.
    Just about 5mm thick. Unfortunately, they will not cover APS-C.

    Thank you - it's a terrible thing to happen to anyone . . . the only thing I can think of doing is behaving very badly - I did consider the interesting proposition of being a Troll - but gave the idea up as too frustrating.

    Re: Who has the most number of m4/3rds cams?

    LOL ... certainly not me. I never had more than one anyway, now it's none.
    What's the point of this question?

    Speaking of which:
    I still have a Cosmicar 12.5mm f/1.4 TV floating about my closet. It's crudely adapted to an mFT adapter (permanently). Crudely in that I messed up and the infinity focus on the lens is about 4' away ... but stop it down to f/9 and it nets from close to infinity in sharp focus. It's a fun little wide lens to play with and makes nice photos:


    Anyone want it? send me an offer... :-)

    3 here as well : OM-D for stills shooting with adapted lenses, GH2 for video (finds little use because I'm not really into video) and my original G1 that is currently in modification to full spectrum ...

    4, if you count my wife's G1 in ...

    OMD, GH-2, G1.....same as me......excellent choices!

    What do you mean by a G1 in modification to "full spectrum"?

    G1 without its internal UV/IR cut filter. At the moment Rafael has one of mine. You can make photos in UV or IR (or Visible) with appropriate filters on the lens.

    EP-1 and OM-D - use both allmost daily. The EP-1 is still an impressive little camera. Use it sometimes for concerts where 'Pro' camera's is not allowed.

    Here EP-1 with Oly' 45 / 1,8, ISO 200, 1/200, F:2,5, Program, Exp comp: -1, No Flash.

    Hmm, let's see . . . golly, it must be 5 months now (6000 shots was up yesterday).

    Just put everything else other than the Leica stuff on ebay yesterday, so it'll just be M9 and OMD . . . oh yes, and the RX100 for on the horse.

    all the best

    Re: Who has the most number of m4/3rds cams?

    Two here: I picked up a Black OM-D body a few weeks back. A birthday gift from me to me! Gunna use my 14-45 and 20mm on it. 45mm f1.8 on the radar.

    I still have my GF1 and when I tried to sell it, I found it had so little value I felt may as well either...
    1-keep it,
    2-use it for some special project,
    or 3-just give it to a family member - any ideas on what is a real super budget m43 lens to give with it? Just anything to make it useful.

    Its sad that they lose value so quickly.

    The Pana 14/2.5. Can be found for as little as $150 (or less) if you look around.

    Re: Who has the most number of m4/3rds cams?

    Vivek's poll asked how many 4/3rd's bodies I have; answer: one (GX1).

    If the poll had asked how many I have had, I would have answered differently: G1, GF-1, GH-1, GH-2, G2, OM-D... and now GX1 only. I think there was an Oly EP something in there too, somewhere.

    @Jono: what are the main reasons you chose the OM-D over the GX1?

    Cheers to all, Kit
