I’m sorry I called you a crackhead, really.
It was just a little joke. Can we still be friends?
Recently, we all learned that your Lumix GH1 has the best sensor of any Micro Four Thirds camera. That’s great!
And I think the native multi-aspect-ratio feature is awesome too. (You do that nicely on several cameras, like the LX3.)
The GH1 has great HD video capabilities, and I understand that the zoom is optimized for this purpose (with quieter motors, etc.)
But but for stills photography, the GH1 also has class-leading high ISO performance. Available-light shooters would surely appreciate a smaller body that can still deliver the goods at ISO 800.
I’m one of them.
So as an alternative, why not also bundle the GH1 with your excellent 20mm f/1.7 pancake?
The 20mm is over two and a half stops faster! And presumably, you could offer a GH1 kit for a lot less money then. Like $400 less.
You might sell a few extra GH1’s that way.
