Quote:I`m finding that the high grade M4/3 lenses often workout costing a lot less than the high grade lenses from larger systems


Samples of cost saving.

Canon

Panasonic

And the weight and bulk saving is pretty big as well.

Seriously worth a look is this EP3 with kit lens, a real bargain at 299, I feel a bit tempted myself Smile

http://www.lcegroup.co.uk/Used/Olympus-E-P3-and-14-42mm-Camera-in-Black--Boxed_68090.html

In some respects I`d say it was a better camera than the G3, the only advantage the G3 has going for it is a built in viewfinder, and this hasn`t changed since the G2, its smudgy, and its grainy in low light.

The other advantages are the wireless flash support(largely not supported by Panasonic) and Inbody IS, again not supported by Panasonic.

If your going to want to use IS and get a G3, your lens choice will be limited.

Theres a Mint Canon 550d with a 16gb and spare battery going in the classifieds at the moment, and you can get a kit lens (18-55mm) from MPB Photographic for peanuts.



Totally agree, get a budget Canon budget DSLR, a lifetime of amazing lenses to discover.

Some of the earlier posters will still be arguing the toss about phase detection or whatever cos that's their hobby, yours is taking pictures, go out and enjoy Smile

You know what they say about people who only ever recommend one supplier?

That's right - you can always rely on them. To recommend one supplier.
