    I went to NYC on Thanksgiving weekend and stopped in at B&H Photo. I never heard of the mirrorless cameras and was immediately intrigued.

    I ended up bringing home a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 kit for myself.

    The kit I purchased was $619 and came with the following:

    • 14-42 (H-FS2552A)
    • 45-150 H-FS150

    I then ordered the 20mm f1.7 prime lens H-H020A from amazon for like $400. This
    prime lens is SWEET!

    I'm just getting my teeth cut and am looking forward to seeing what I can do with this kit!

    Welcome aboard, Holly!

    I'm envious - I've never been to B&H.

    I'd like to there sometime to visit my money :biggrin:.

    I hope you enjoy the new gear - I've got the 20mm f/1.7 and find it to be "sweet" too.

    Thanks Jim,

    If you ever get to visit New York, you really should stop in B&H. It truly is an incredible electronic wonderland. The only real benefit to buying in person is that you get to pay lovely NYC sales tax, although I did check in using foursquare, which got me a free back pack. The store is only one block away from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden, very convenient.

    Welcome from North Jersey! One of my first m43 lenses was also the 20mm 1.7 and I agree - it's a great lens!
