    Hi ,
    Would like to give a camera as a birthday present.
    Can spend 250€ , and am looking for mint , little used second hand gear .Here is the dilemma ;

    - lumix g1 +kitlens + 45mm f1.8
    - e-pl3 with 45mm f1.8
    - e-pl5 with panasonic kitlens .
    note that the e-pl5 would be new and i would donate my own pana kitlens , don't use it anyway.
    By saying that i don't use the kitlens anyway might hint to the e-pl3 + 45mm straight away ???

    imo epl5 sensor makes it the very obvious choice.
    I have no idea about EU prices, but I think that 12-32mm lens would be even more desirable choice for epl5.

    I once owned an E-PL5 (before upgrading) and it was a great camera. This little camera goes from full auto to full manual allowing a beginner to grow into the more artistic images it can produce. I'd go with it and donate your kit lens for a great beginners combo.
