I want to dabble into a smaller footprint / lighter weight system. I'm rather heavily invested in the Nikon dSLR gear (FF & APS-C) but recent travels and planned future events have me wanting to go small. Initially, my thoughts were a high end P&S like the Canon G series, but shutter lag put me off, but more so, was the lack of interchangeable lenses (read old school). So I came across the 4/3 format, read many reviews, saw many images and to be honest, this platform seems to fit the bill for me. I think the latest Oly offering of the E-P3 is what I'm likely to go with. In fact, my cart is sitting on "Proceed to Checkout" at Adorama. The problems is the lens choice. Do I go with the kit 14-42mm variable aperture lense, which should give me a reasonable introduction to the system or should I go with my gut and get the (probably better quality) 17mm f/2.8? I despise variable aperture zoom lenses in the dSLR, so it seems the same would be true in the 4/3's. But OTOH, it's all new to me and I could easily pick up the primes later if this works out. Thoughts, opinions or other considerations? Thanks for your input. BTW, I've kept the same username that I use on other photo forums. So if I annoyed you on those sites......... Hello!
