Before I talk about my user experience of the OMD, I'm going to give you a bit of background on myself. I've used Canon equipment for about 7 years, about 3 years ago I bought the Panasonic GF1 as a lighter option to use (for example travelling, or social events), and my two systems of choice were very separate.
