Keep LX5 + FZ40 or buy a m4/3 or entry level DSLR?
Jan 5, 2011

I managed to get great prices on both of my cameras. Paid $275 for a new LX5 and $220-ish for an (also new) FZ40. While I do love them both, I wonder if I need two cameras. I'm not really the type of guy who carries a camera around 24/7. I always plan my outings beforehand.

So I'm wondering if I should just sell both at a small profit and use the money to get a Micro Four Thirds or cheap DSLR (I don't mind getting used equipments as long as it works perfectly). Or sell the LX5 and just keep the FZ40 (for it's superzoom).

If possible, I would also like to know the average price range of a basic "starter kit". I'm a beginner in photography so I'm looking for the best value

Thank you.
