As for coming back to Oly - it may happen one day, depending on what transpires with my shooting style, but for now, for me the GF1 (and as of today the G1) is where its at as i want to put family before photography and dont want the weight of a full DSLR kit. The G1 is sublime when used with legacy glass - some of it Olympus! - and the EVF with the magnify option helps with focusing no end.

However to appease those that questioned my original post i will still be using my E-system reflector that i got free with my first E-camera (E-520) so i suppose that means i can carry on posting

Good man, Chris, I like your style.

Now, let's put you to work. When you've had the chance to try it properly let us know what you think of the Auto WB in the G1 and how it compares with the GF1 and the Olympus E-System cameras you've used in the past.

Being used to Oly, I think the Auto WB of my G1 sucks and I would value your opinion. Also, it would be interesting to hear how the GF1 (which I've never used) compares. Some example pictures posted on the forum would be really helpful.

No free ride for you, matey - you've got to earn your keep!

No problem John

Well considering i've got two weeks in Tenerife coming up starting Tuesday, there'll be plenty of opportunity to put them to the test

I've found the E-3 auto WB second only to the D700, but not really examined the Pannys in too much detail, so will do some side by side tests under controlled conditions when i return.
