Hello all, great to see that there is a board about M/FT, and a great community. I found this community while I was struggling the internet about M/FT. A lot of (D)SLR-users (especially the Canon and Nikon-ones) laugh when you say that you consider to cross the sea to M/FT, and state that the quality of M/FT is not good at all, they UN-adviced me all to change. My situation and the reason that I am on this board? Well, easy. I owned a Canon 500D with 2 fast-primes and one 24-105L Walk-Around lens. Yep, great stuff, I can confirm that. The only thing is...... When I left my house, or I took the 24-105 with me, or I just let all my stuff in da house, for the simple reason it is all too heavy. 5 months ago, I took the stuff once out, and all got stolen. I was not happy, but bought me at the same moment a simple Pana DMC-FZ38 (I think in the US the name is FZ35). Why? Because my first smaller Bridge was a Pana, and I took better pictures with it then I ever did with my Canon, for the simple reason my Canon never left my place. Since that moment, where-ever I go, I have that bridge with me. I just got interest in taking pics again. I like the Panasonic a lot, and the Leica-zoomlens is wonderfull, if you know the restrictions of a Bridge of course. It is more a tool but you can make fantastic pics with it. Ok, Belgian man, i hear some boardmembers say, you had a D-SLR, and now you have a Pana-Bridge, so what you do on a M/FT-board? Fina, 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, ... . I don't know if I have to start a new topic, or I can do it here, but I try here, and I will see or anyone will react on my questions. 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 9in the first place). 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 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. 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 end, not at all, I never zoom in more then 105mm with my bridge, so I think it is more important for me to stay in the middle-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 kit or with a lower aparture will also do the job very good? I can tell, that the MFT has lenses that can stay almnost 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. 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). I look forwards to your opinion. Thanks already a lot.
