My main camera, which is probably perfectly adequate, is a Panasonic G5. I like the handling, and it mostly does what I need. And I've got a decent flash, and most of the lenses that I want under that budget. (If the 12-40 Olympus refurb was back for $639, I'd get one of those!) But I've had a couple uses for my "backup" body (which is just my old G3 that I haven't bothered to sell yet) this year, and could have used an external mic once or twice. And the GH3 has shown up a couple of times for less than $600. I wasn't a big fan of the GF I tried briefly, so I'm not sure a GM1 is a great idea; but something small would be lovely when chasing my toddler in the park. And I could get a GX7 or a refurb EM5 for about $600 now too. Image stabilization is great, right? So I should just relax, and ignore these holiday deals, right? None of these cameras are THAT much better than a G5, right?
