Re: Best Micro Four Thirds For the Buck

Do you mean what is the best "cheap" m4/3 camera?  It's hard to tell what the best is for the buck as people value price differently.

For me the best "for the buck" cameras right now are the GX1, the EPM2, the G3, the G5 (and probably the GH2).  None of them are the cheapest cameras in the line, but they have newer generation sensors (in the EPM2, the newest generation) which perform notably better than the 12mp sensors in the earlier cameras.

One thing to think about, though, is how a camera will feel in your hand with a telephoto lens on it.  If you're going to use a rather large one, you might want to try out different bodies and see how it feels.  I think that I'd be happy using a EPM# or GX1 with my 20mm pancake, but I'm less sure with the 45-200.
