Re: Which one to move to (from a PL1 now)?

On a lark, I bought a Panasonic G3 w/ kit 14-42 for $299 (new) from B&H (my intent was to simply have a m4/3 body for my old Zuiko lenses) and am stunned at what an excellent camera it is.

Having had and extensively shot an OM-D EM-5, I will tell you that this little gem does (conservatively) 90% of what the OM-D can do at 25% of the price.

to quote dpreview:

Simply put, the G3 produces some of the finest images we have ever seen from Micro Four Thirds sensor technology. That it is possible to capture pictures with the G3 whose image quality is virtually indistinguishable from an entry-level DSLR is impressive. That you can achieve it in a camera of this price range is nothing short of remarkable.

So my 2¢: grab a G3 (body only for $249) while they last...

G3 at B&H
