Well, personally I'm not too concerned about the in-body IS thing. It's nice to have, but since majority of my lenses are pretty bright or already have built in Power OIS, it's really a non-issue for me. The 14-42X and 45-175X both have built in IS, and my 45mm 1.7 is a very bright lens. I can't advice you on Olympus since I hate the look of the bodies, and I refuse to touch their aged sensor.I´m also looking at the GX1 with the Summilux 25/1.4, but the Pen´s IS is also tempting... I have a very hard time to decide. The extra stop with GX1 new sensor or extra stop with built in image stabilization on the Pen.
I´m leaving my D7000 w 18-105, 60mm Macro & 35mm. I´m going to put the money from selling my Nikon equipment to a M4/3 system. Any advice for my new setup (using the Nikon money) is appreciated...
Most of the advice here are already quite spot on, so I'll just give my thoughts:
- Panasonic GX1
- Panasonic DMC-LVF2
- 14-42X PZ lens
- Olympus 45mm lens
- Panasonic 20mm or Panny-Leica 25mm
I think this pretty much should fit your needs.
