Should I jump from nikon camp to olympus camp?
Dec 11, 2010

So, there was a storm that I photographed with my D700 and 24/2.8 and took video with canon ixus. The ixus survived but the d700 took a hit. It's not weather sealed but still, Im a bit disappointed. Anyhow

The insurance company most probably wont fix it, but pay me to get a new one. The guy from nikon repair called and said there was something wrong with 24/2.8 also.

So Im getting about about 2000 to 2500 euros to spend on camera gears.

What I really would like is to get nice digital rangefinder (like) camera, but as far as only real option is leica with 5000e price tag its a no go.

I've been having a huge battle with myself whether or not get oly e-3 used. I could get E-3 + HDL-4, zuiko 12-60 and zuiko 9-18 for 2000 euro, the price that would by me another d700

So, should I buy get those gears or what. Am I doing a mistake by getting olympus?
