I can't stand the CNET reviews,
The Youtube reviews are refreshing now and again.

I was bidding on a used PANASONIC DMC-G2 12.1MP 4/3 MICRO/w/14-42 on ebay,
But...In the last 5 seconds...I got out bid, Oh well, Stuff happens.
I really didn't want to spend a lot on a used camera anyways.

The final bid was $338., My highest bid was $300.

I bet you that camera will be on sale again.

Actually, After reading some more reviews on it I'm kind of glad I didn't get it.
I've found that the Nikon D80 is a much better buy second hand,
It's only a 10 mp camera, But it can use a plethora of old Nikon lenses.

It's a different breed of camera, But it reminds me of my old SLR days in the 1970's.
Also, The Nikon has a Pentaprism, Great for shooting endless jpegs.

I was realllllly tempted to buy a M4/3 for my last camera, since they do have excellent performance and a smaller size (with a pancake lens anyways). For $300something I think it was a GF2 with a zoom kit lens but the problem is the zoom kit lens is too big. I got a Canon S100 as I was intending to buy, which is a nice portable camera. I decided portability was ultimately more important than the "cool factor" of M4/3 because I have gotten tired of lugging around my 5D or 30D gear around and find I am just not taking as many pictures as I used to.

When using my S100 I often wish it had an optical viewfinder, and a mirrorless would be no different, unless it had a really good EVF or possibly rangefinder.
