Well I have finally done it. I have just swapped my Nikon D300s for the Panasonic Lumix GX8. I wanted something smaller and lighter to carry around with me as I have been finding the Nikon increasingly difficult to use due to some of my long-term health issues.
The guys at Carmarthen Cameras were extremely helpful and spent ages with me discussing all the available micro four-third options. Overall I preferred the feel and the weight of the GX8 in my hand and so went for that with the 12-60mm kit lens.
There will be quite a learning curve in making the switch over as the two systems are very different. Time will tell as to whether or not I made the right choice.
But for the moment here is the first picture taken with my new Lumix. I will keep you updated as to how it all goes.
