Re: Best value for street photography

You might look at the Panasonic G5 or G3. Both can usually be found new for very good prices. You can get one with the 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 with IS kit lens (effective 28-84mm) for just a few dollars more. Try them out. Then for very small you might want the 14mm f2.5 pancake lens.

I have used the G3 + 14-42mm for street life photos in Tokyo. I also have an E-M5 that I use for street life photos. Before I used various DSLRs. The E-M5 is slow to wake up from sleep mode so that is a big annoyance with it for the street. My G3 wakes up a bit faster and just enough faster that it is less of a problem.
