Re: Best MILC for Complete Photography Novice

Do you need a built in flash ?
If so, the C3 is ruled out.

The GF5 uses an older generation sensor so has limited appeal on this forum.

I have a GX1 and can recommend it.

I have to wonder how much use, if any, you make of the interchangeable lens feature.
The kit lenses are not ideal for low light situations.
The camera will shine better in low light with a larger aperture prime lens.
But how much do you really want to be fumbling with multiple lenses during your learning curve ?

Charlie throws out the suggestion of the RX100, but that camera gives up some performance to compactness (mainly lens speed at longer focal lengths).
It's worth considering a moderately compact fixed lens camera like the Canon G1X in addition to the small Sony.
