Re: Lumix GX1, Lumix LX7 and Nikon D300s dilemma !!!

I own an LX-3, which I want to sell. Since the advent of the Sony RX-100, the others are becoming obsolete in the compact class. The OP is considering a very good but unstabilized Olympus lens, and wanting to mount that on an unstabilized Panasonic body. Not advised. My suggestion; if you want that lens, get the OMD ME-5. Owners seem to like them. Recently, there have been cheaper reconditioned units coming on the market.

This is an interesting point. I wasn't aware, that with the GX1 9-18 combo I'd loose the VR. Another option would be the 12-35, which has VR. But it's out of question for the price they ask for (I know it's a 'pro' lens). As I wanted to stick with Lumix, the Oly was out of question. Maybe I'll take a look at it !!!!

It all depends on what I want to carry around on hiking trips (like the Coast2coast walk). It would be a shame to make a trip of a lifetime without the best IQ possible (which would be the D300s). If I think about the landscape of Lake District, Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales, well the d300s would be the best option.
