I have spent the last couple weeks learning about the 4/3 systems and camera offerings between the two brands. Miss using a serious camera. I do have a small budget of no more then $750 to start with. I want to able to build a small system of lens, then advance to newer body as money allows. Basically I'm looking at a discontinued E-P3 that is heavily discounted or a E-PL5 for slightly more money. To start my journey into the micro 4/3 world. I been around cameras for a long time and consider myself a photo hobbyist. Would either one those cameras be a good starting point into micro 4/3.? Everyone here has been very gracious in answering my questions. This is a great forum to educate on this unique system.
