First post - so go easy on me! I am coming back into photography after a ~15 year hiatus - I used to shoot a lot of slide film (a mix of landscape and travel photography, plus the usual family record taking) on my Nikon 801. I still have some good AF lenses (180 2.8, 28-80 zoom, 105mm 2.5, 24mm 2.8) and had assumed that I would just get a digital body at some point and move into the digital age. I have some olympus digital point and shoot camera's that I've been using for the last 10 years, but mainly just for 'was here - saw that' type of record keeping. The problem with my Nikon setup is that it is large and heavy! I find I just don't keep it with me, and it is a burden to carry around. I do most of my photography when traveling, and these days I travel most often by motorcycle - so size and weight are a big factor, as is durability and resistance to vibration/ moisture and dust - although not necessarily any more then a regular travel/ backpacking situation I guess. Speaking with a another motorbike riding photographer recently, he mentioned the M43 format, and I've been looking into it since. Initially I had assumed that I would naturally purchase a full (35mm film) sized sensor because - hey, I appreciate quality right? that's why I used to shoot 50 and 100 speed fuji film! However, in all honesty, I realize that most of my pictures these days will be viewed on a computer screen anyway and I have been really impressed with photo's that I'm seeing while doing a little research on some of the more compact camera system, in particular the M43. Initially I had also figured on maybe getting a fixed lens camera like the Canon G15 or something but looking at the M43 systems, it seems like there is a lot to offer for not much more $. OK - so here is my ask. I want something that is simple and easy to use. That being said, I'm willing to pay a bit more for quality and durability. I appreciate good, fast lenses but I can't afford, nor do I need professional grade equipment. I'd say I used to shot most of my pictures with either my 24mm (landscape) or my 180mm (which was just so nice for picking out people) as they were also my two best optics. However, I don't at this point have a great interest in having to master a whole lot of new features, in particular digital file manipulation. Maybe at a later date, but for now I am hoping to find something relatively simple that will give me good results out of the box with my existing knowledge of light/ time/ aperture. It has to be quick and fun to use, I'm afraid that I will end up with a camera that is overly complicated, and it will prevent me from just picking it up and taking pictures. It seems that the Olympus OM D5 is the hot camera right now, and while it's price isn't out of reach, it will limit the lenses I can buy as I'm not ready to spend much more then around $1500-1700 on a new setup (and less would be nice!). I like the look of the E-PL5, which is half the price, as well as some of the Panasonic bodies which seem to offer quite a lot of value. I'm undecided on an viewfinder - would be nice, but maybe not a deal breaker for me - my eyes are not great and I appreciate a big LCD screen. For a quality body that offers a simple interface- what do you recommend? There are lots of variations on the basic zoom lenses, both in the 14-50 range, and the 50-150 range. I am thinking I can probably afford to pay for and carry 3 lenses - so what would those be? I am not sure that 14 will be wide enough - and there are not a lot of options in the 12 or under range. what 3 lenses would you recommend, particularly if at least one of them was a wider or telephoto zoom? Any other tips or advise appreciated. My key points: quality, but easy to learn for a digital novice. 3 lenses as a start, trying to keep the total weight and size down. spend more on the body (OM D5) or get a cheaper body and spend $ on the lenses? Thanks for your help!
