There is also the huge world of legacy lenses where very good glass can be had for as little as $39.00.

Free from Uncle Albert is better. Everyone should have an Uncle Albert, the old guy who showed up with two SLR's at the family BBQ's. Many of us will become that guy, if not already.

Now back on topic, three hundred bucks spent toward an EP3 is wasted money, especially with an EPM2 body on Black Friday Weekend sale for $449.

With a clean ISO 3200, that $99 40-150 that tedolph likes so much can go indoors now.


The only thing I don't like about the new E-pm2 is the 3:2 screen and the lack of a built in flash.

Based on the OP's original post, an E-pl2 would be just right.   If he can sell his existing bodies for $200 (should be able to do that on E-bay) he would have enough for a Cameta Camera E-pl2 refurb body.
