Stick with GF1 or buy A33/d3100?
Mar 22, 2011

Hi guys,

I share a GF1 with 20mm lens with my gf.
We're moving to the UK for about 2 years, and have a stopover in HK.
Should I take the opportunity to buy another camera to use in the UK?

The GF1 is a decent, compact kit but has fixed focal length and doesn't do 24fps video (which i'd like for that slightly different motion)

I could buy a standard 14-45mm lens but it's not really quick.
Or I could buy a Tamrom 17-50mm 2.8 and use it with either a Sony A33 or d3100.

Leaning towards A33 coz of it's video system, but again, doesn't do 24fps.
I'd have to manual focus with d3100 but it's not too bad (ex d90 owner)
or maybe even 550d...

not too fussed about picture quality cos i'm sure they're all pretty good.

what to do!
