Took the plunge today on M4/3.
13

After a few weeks of mulling it around I bit the bullet today and bought the Panasonic GX80 (85) with 12-32 lens, plus the free 25/1.7 lens, (free offer expires tomorrow!) and a 12-60/3.5-5.6.  My shortlist was GX80, GX9 and the Olympus EPL9. I’m just an enthusiastic amateur and apart from good IQ, a major consideration for me is size (I prefer small) and of course cost, also wanted black, no silver. The EPL9, as good as it looks and as good as the reviews are was discounted. The GX9 was larger than I wanted and much more expensive. The GX80 fitted the bill and with the p/x I got from a Canon G7X and a Sony NEX5N with std zoom and a couple of lenses, it was a good deal. I’ve still got my Sony RX100 Mk 2 and will miss the NEX which had a great body and lovely colours, but a somewhat clunky user interface and big lenses. Just need to get used to the GX80 and start shooting. Hope to post some stuff soon.
