Decided on a GF3
In reply to OpticsEngineer, Jul 3, 2012

Thanks for all your help and advice on this. Specifically giving her my EP3 and going OMD was a good shout but unfortunately not gonna happen!!

I went into local camera shop and tried out epm1, epl3, LX5, xz1... But I have ended up buying a Panasonic GF3!! Didn't see that one coming! However, it seems to tick a lot of the boxes and she can still use all my current m43 lenses. I managed to get a deal on a red body only GF3 for £110. It was part of a lens kit promo and the body & accessories had never been opened or used. Bargain!

As we are going away on holiday shortly she will get it early and I will attach my panny 20mm 1.7 to get her started. I think going forward the 14mm f2.5 or 14-42mm would a suitable companion for this camera

Anyway, I hope she likes it.
