Torn Between the Fuji X-A1 and the Olympus E-PL5
4 months ago

Both cameras available new in the UK at the moment for £399 and £329 respectively. The E-PL5 comes with the 14-42 and 45-150 and the X-A1 with the 16-50 and the 50-230 via redemption. I have at the moment a Nikon D7000 with a selection of lenses but would like to try a smaller lighter kit to see if I like it with a view to switching systems if all turned out well. I am attracted to the X-A1 for the apsc sensor and high ISO perfomance but am also aware of the relatively high price of Fuji lenses and also the limited choice. I prefer the contol layout on the Fuji to the Oly but am attracted to the M4/3 system for the larger lens choice and price point.

I would apprectiate any views the forum members here might like to share to assist me with this choice.
