Shall I buy an Olympus E-420 for 330$ with 2 kit lenses?
Jun 8, 2012

may be I have asked many such questions but I'm really confused since I want to buy a dSLR and I have not much money. so:

It's a while that I want to move on for my first dSLR, however my limited budget prevents me from buying exactly what I want. I like Pentax k-r (or k-x) more than any other camera but my budget for now doesn't allow to pay minimum 580$ (520$). another option is a Nikon d5000 with a kit lens (refurbished one) for 420$ and a Nikon D3000 with a kit lens (again refurbished) for 360$. however the cheapest option is an Olympus E-420 with a kit lens (14-42mm) for 270$ (refurbished) and an Olympus E-420 with 2 kit lenses (14-42 and 40-150mm) for 330$ (refurbished). I'm very confused if it's worth to buy one of Olympus'es or Nikon D3000 now, or if it is better to wait for may be a year or more to be able to buy something like k-r?

I think if I buy Olympus or D3000, I may need to buy another camera a few years later, but buying a k-r or D5000 will satisfy me for much longer time.

Nikon D3000 Nikon D5000 Olympus E-420 Pentax K-r Pentax K-x
