Re: Micro four thirds camera for street and general work

If it wasn't for your price limit, I would say the GX7, because your requirements are otherwise what mine are. Double your budget and consider the new more compact 14-140 zoom, that whilst designed for video, takes superb stills too. (I had the Mk1 14-140 on a GH2 and it was very versatile. Not that fast, but if you're doing street photography, not sure that matters.) If you do want speed, and don't mind walking up to your subjects, the 20mm f1.7 or new 1.8 offers superb IQ in low light. (I'm getting the GX7 + 20mm to kick things off.)

The articulating viewfinder and dual dial controls are the killer features on the GX7 for me.

But you're talking double your budget. Maybe you can sell just ONE superb street photo and pay for the camera in one go?
