Re: M43 present advice


Thank you for all of the replies so far.

I would spend up to £500 (UK pounds) but may squeeze a bit more out of other family members if necessary.

I appreciate the comments that a m43 isn't necessarily better to learn photography than a low end SLR, I am sure that is correct. The two reasons for getting m43 are, firstly, we can swap lenses and ideas more easily I suspect. Secondly, I think he is more likely to get more use out of something like an EPL with 20mm pancake lens than a SLR with a 50mm lens, he would put the former his bag more readily than the SLR.

Based on the thoughts here the two options seem to be E-PL3 and DMC-GF3.

Is it reasonable to focus on those two?

What does the E-PM offer or not offer in comparison?

I think something like the E-PL3, a 20 mm f1.7, and a zoom lens of some kind would be a good start, reasonable?

What would any of the larger Panasonics offer, or the EP Olympus?

With the Panasonic what are the key differences between GH, GF and G?

Thank you again, sorry for the tedious questions!
