Should I upgrade my G3 now or wait?
Jul 10, 2013

I cannot decide on my next upgrade. I have enjoyed using my G3 with Oly 45mm, Panny 20mm and 14-45 zoom. I mainly shoot as I have done for the last 30 years for pleasure ranging from family events in low light to holiday landscape and street photography.

I was going to by a used G5 and Im still tempted but made the mistake of reading about the Olympus OMD E-M5 and this is the problem

The E-M5 is at the top end of my budget and only if I buy a grey import in the UK from HDEW or procamera shop etc.

In real world use for someone who takes the kind of shots I do is the E-M5 worth the extra? Is the photo quality that much better?

I also understand there could be announcements from Panasonic and Olympus this month regarding new models, is this true.
