Advice choosing a camera from GF2 and GX1 owners, please.
Feb 27, 2012

Hi there! I'm wanting to get something that ought to be very simple, namely a camera with a fast normal lense that I can use to take street photos and pictures of the kids at school, and that doesn't cost the earth. Can anyone recommend anything by panasonic? My favoured option at the moment is Nikon D3100+35mm 1.8 DX lense, but I'd like something smaller if possible, or at least some food for thought on alternatives. The GF2 and 14mm lense would be cheaper. It seems to produce reasonable bokeh. Do people who've shot SLRs in the fast enjoy using it, or get frustrated by the lack of hard controls? Is it too slow focusing to get action shots of children?

I want good IQ and minimal shutter lag, and full manual settings are a must, but almost everything else is up for grabs. Thanks!

Nikon D3100 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
