I don't think I'd buy either. Really. But that's me.......

What is your primary system? What do you normally shoot (ie. landscape, nature, sports, kids, etc.)? What exactly are you looking for from whatever one you purchase? Is it a primary body? A back up? A "carry it everywhere"?

I'm sorry to answer your questions with questions, but a bit of information will help a great deal in making recommendations.

Hi, thanks for ou reply. Now as what I like to shoot, those are:

  • Landscapes & natures photography, notably also atmospheric shots, i.e. at dusk, dawn or/having a low layer of fog
  • Night scenes, primarily non-moving objects
  • Architecture
  • Some "snapshots" however not involving fast-paced action. I.e. sitting in a cafe outside and just catching "the groove"

What I am looking for from whatever one I would purchase is: Clear, sharp images with excellent colour rendition, carrying it everywhere, yet having a large sensor. Now I'm aware that some 1/1.7 cam could also do an excellent job, yet I was thinking why getting a 1/1.7 sensor cam for a regular price when for pretty much the same price (on clearance sale that is ) I could get an APS-C sensor cam when I weigh much on image quality? I.e. the larger the sensor the better the results normally, however, taking into consideration that good lenses play a very important (if not the most important) role.
