E-PL5 vs XZ-2 or LX-7 vs yours opinion
Sorry my english is slightly poor, but I ask you for help with choose camera.
I read review and see in store Olympus XZ-2 and Panasonic LX-2. I want to share my cons about these cameras:
-slow zoom (from vide to tele)
-short lens (90mm)
-slow AF when I change AF in movie mode
-no charger for battery on the b0x (charger is useful for me because when I go to trip I sometimes leave battery to charge in for example McDonald)
I think that very nice option is touch LCD on XZ-2 where you can show point on AF. I know that LX-7 have that option too, but you must show that point by button. And I think that software of LX-7 is slower than XZ-2.
XZ-2 is more attractive for me but LX-7 have a magic subtitle LEICA and lighter lens. Is it worth to pay more? XZ-2 about 300 euro, LX-7 370 euro.
When I was in the shop seller told me that they have special price for Olympus E-PL5 with 14-42 and 40-150 (about 460 euro). I think is good option. But I must ask:
Bigger matrix, darker lens vs smaller matrix, lighter lens
E-PL5 vs XZ-2, LX-7
I know that I loose compact size. And I start my adult life so I don’t want to spending all money for camera, so for a long time kit lens must be enough (or maybe I not become photo enthusiastic for buy another lens). Before I have old, small, 8 years old Nikon compact and DSLR Olympus. But now Nikon have a slow AF and ISO range between 100-400 and I sold Olympus because it is too big for my exploration. I want to take photo during rock climbing, mountain trips, biking, skiing. I think I take a nice nature and landscape photo. I want to take better portrait photo with a soften background after person. The size of camera is important for me because in difficult area for example on mountain smaller size is more practical to use. And I really crazy about photo quality. Maybe that is funny but I want to buy amazing camera with quality like DSLR in small size box J and cost <500 euro.
Please help me with that
