Good afternoon everyone... currently use Olympus micro 4/3 camera with detachable lens. I'm looking for something light that I could carry around for street photography and when on travels (please let that happen soon!), walking around cities etc.

I had recently bought an Olympus Pen E-P3, but it didn't have a viewfinder, and founding almost impossible to see what was happening in Live view..so a viewfinder is essential. I'm open to any brand. My wife has just bought a Panasonic TZ200, which although produces remarkable results, it feels a little small.

Please give me some suggestions? Budget..no more than about 300. I will probably buy used.

Regards Jeff

Stay safe

If you don't mind used, and can find one, the Oly Stylus 1 might suit you.
I had one before moving to an OMD.
f2.8 across the whole zoom 28-300

The smaller Fuji's, most with a fixed lens (23mm) are well worth a look. They are very popular for street work.

Thanks Andy...finding Panasonic' range quite confusing...but have settled for a Fujifilm x20...an old model, but looks to give me the features and styling that I'm after.

Thanks everyone 😁😁

Hope you like it when you get your hands on it, Jeff.
No idea what you have read about the wee beastie, but here's an informative and interesting article from 2018.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts when you've had a chance to use and evaluate it.

Many thanks, Malc...now I'm getting excited 😁😁😁

I'll try and take a selection of shots and do a mini review later in the month.
