cheap E-PM1 or a different one?
4 months ago

Dear Forum,

I need some advice. I am a new happy owner of a XZ-10. The only thing I'm missing is shallow DoF to experiment. So I had been breaking my mind if I should send the XZ-10 back and get a f.ex. cheap used EOS-M instead. I would miss too many features of the XZ-10 however (portability - going on a long travel soon, slow-mo video, f/1.8-2.7, 1cm macro).

So I thought to keep the XZ-10 and try to get a really cheap m43 to have the benefit of interchangeable lenses and get a 20€ c-mount manual 35mm 1.7 lens with adapter.

I have a really low budget. I spotted the E-PM1 for 120€, and it looks like a great entry into m43! What do you guys think about the camera, and are there any alternatives pricewise?

I also looked into the NEX 3.

Olympus PEN E-PM1
