I'm sure this has been discussed to death, so I apologize in advance. At least 50% of the purpose of this post is for me to think out loud. I recently sold my Canon crop body (an original Rebel XT) and lenses (50mm, 85mm, 28-135mm) with the intention of moving to a MFT kit. After selling this and other stuff I'm not longer using, I have between $1800-2300 to spend on a new system (not everything has sold yet). For the last two years, I've been primarily shooting pictures of my wife and daughter, mostly the later. My daughter at the park. My daughter on a hike,.My daughter at the zoo. My daughter at a birthday party. My daughter building Legos. You get the idea. My Rebel setup was terrible for this - autofocus struggled in low light, I didn't have a sufficiently wide lens for indoor shooting (my fault, I know), low light performance of the sensor was not so good. Lately, I've also wanted to take pictures of not-my-daughter as well. My schedule doesn't really allow me much time for 'photo trips', but I do commute by bike which allows me the opportunity to see lots of interesting things and stop more or less whenever I want. The Rebel + 50mm fit in my messenger bag well enough with my other stuff, but that wasn't really the best focal length. So, here I am in Seattle, with what looks like a relatively healthy used MFT market on craigslist. I'm trying to figure out what my new kit should be. I don't have to spend everything and will probably make any purchases incrementally as used gear becomes available. So, used OMD-EM5 w/ 14-42mm kit lens for $700 or new GX7 w/kit lens for $1100? It seems like I could get the EM5, a 14mm prime and the 45mm/1.8 prime for about the same price as the GX7 kit. That would leave me looking for either a 20mm or 25mm for indoor shots. On the other hand, the GX7 is pretty sexy. Thoughts on what I'd be giving up by going with the used body? Random suggestions about lenses?
