I want to buy a M/FT system after having owned a D-SLR that I never used. The reason was just: too heavy to carry around and take with me wherever I went. I own now a walk-around PanaBridge FZ38 (FZ35), but want to take better pictures under all conditions, and do not need that long range zoom, I never use it, and the Bridge will be a present to my daughter. Finally, I will travel to Asia in March for 2 months, just from town to town, from small city to city, and I want a better digicam. But I never want to give up the portability of my Pana, so, I think a new D-SLR is out of the question, I am not going to take 5 kilo of photographical material when I am in the streets of Bankgkok, Chiang Mai, Sri lanka, Manila, ... . What am i searching? Well, I want a system that suits streets photography in Asia, and also I wanna do some kind of street portraits of everyday-people, and some landscape shots and the normal stuf like sunset, bla bla bla. But my goal is to buy a system that is NOT heavy and that take good quality pics, and there has to be a good walk around lens on it. That is my goal, to get info on that on this board in the first place. I can be wrong, but i like fixed apperture lenses more, or at least lenses that start with f2.8 in the wide range, and go no further then 4.0 in the zoom range. So I can fix the cam on f4.0 and close the lens more when I want, not being restricted by the lens aperture. So, I just love Panasonic, and know a bit how the Pana-system work, and the body don't has to be mini-mini for me, so I tought to buy the PANA G2 as body. I was reading also a few good things about the 20mm f1.7 lens to shoot in the streets, and as a portrait lens. I've always been told that a lens under 50 mm will give distortion of the faces because you have to get to close to the person you photograph. So 'big noses and no ears' will be my part when I take portraits with the 20mm? As the 20 mm is a 40mm in 35 mm, can i get a decent answer on this? And then the 'walk-around' lens. I think it is important to have a good lens, even if it cost me a little bit more. I am not interested in the long zoom range end, not at all, I never zoom in more then to 105mm with my bridge, so I think it is more important for me to stay in the middle(or even small)-zoom rage. I tought about the ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-54mm F2.8-3.5II. It is not a M/FT, I know, but all advice is welcome. It is the low apperture that I am interested in. I was reading a lot, but is this the best walk around lens for my needs (ok, I will have to buy the adapter, and the lens and adapter together are a bit pricy, but I want to pay a bit money for a lens that will probably stay most of the time on the cam). Or do you people say that a Pana lens-kit or with a lower aparture will also do the job very good? I am really curious about this one, because a kit lens is rather cheap, compared to the Zuiko 14-54 II. Once again, I like the 2.8-3.5 aperture on this lens. I can tell, that the MFT has lenses that can stay almost all the time on the system, and I cannot tell that about the D-SLR, or you miss the wide-range, or the lense is simple too short. My 24-105 had an overall aperture of 4, but I sometimes missed the wide range, and with a 14 on F/MT (x2, I know), I think it is just ok. And for the moments that I need the very-wide range, I can of course buy a lens in the future that suit my needs, low aperture and ultra wide (that is the advantage to a bridge, adn I do not need to buy al at the same time, better good stuff spreaded over some time, then bad /not so good lenses all at once). Please let me know what you think about my choises, all help is welcome. So, I will buy the PANA G2 (or is that a bad choice?) Do I buy the 20mm f1.7? As portrait/street lens? Do I buy the Zuiko as walk around lens, or is it better to buy a less lightstark walk around and invest in one macro (45mm/50mm). What is another good lens for outdoor and indoor portraits? I was reading a lot on dpreview, and to be honest, sometimes it just confuses me all. I never used a M/FT, so I really do not know what to expect. Especially the D-SLR communities are talking about the bad results on higer ISO, I do not think I have to get higher then 800 ever, we have also light that we can use indoor, and outdoor, well, I better hear it from the community here. I look forwards to your opinions. Thanks already a lot.
