Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a light and compact setup for street photography and for obvious reasons I'm thinking M43 should suit my purpose. I currently shoot Pentax DSLR and it can be a little too much on the shoulder at times, although everything else is fantastic.

My setup has to include a body (obviously...), wide/normal prime lens (preferably fast), viewfinder.

I tried looking at the different models by Oly and Panasonic but I lost myself quickly.

Ideally I'd get something like an OM-d or the new gx7 but they cost more than I'd like to spend. I think around 600$ is my approximate budget but I'd like to know if I can get away with less than that or if I'm too optimistic.

Panasonic 14mm 2.5 with G3 panasonic. That lens is awesomely sharp and cheap ~ $200 used. Get the body for similar price. You can also get a used ep2 with vf2 for maybe $350.
