So, hi there. I'm new to the forums, obviously, and will have to go do a proper introduction in the proper forum here at some point...But until then, let me give you the short version. I'm coming back into photography after a decently sized gap; Not massive massive, but enough that my camera bodies are a Nikon D40, and a D70 I acquired through a friend. ...You will note that those are 6 megapixel cameras, 10 and 12 years old respectively, and that the D70 has a screen smaller than many modern smartwatches. Just so we know what we're dealing with here. Anyways. I'm strongly considering jumping ship from Nikon and landing on something a little more modern, while being more affordable. Because as it is, if I want to get a more modern Nikon that has things like internal autofocus, I basically have to go up to the D90, whiiich is 8 years old and still over $200 on the used market. Which brings me to looking at micro 4/3rds as a serious option! There's just one problem. I'm an underemployed 20-something stuck living with the folks. So, that is to say...I can't exactly afford the latest and greatest on the shelf. ...Or what was the latest and greatest last year. ...or the year before that. My budget, for a camera body, is kiiiind of about 100 US dollars. Give or take. Now, I will be fair, that does not currently have to cover a lens; I have my Nikon gear, after all, and a quick 15 dollar adapter would let me use at least my nifty fifty as a manual lens. (I am aware of the doubling from crop factor) From there, if M43 turns out to be super awesome, well, I can start selling off the Nikon gear to get the lenses and such I'd want for the M43 format. All well and good. Which leaves me looking at stuff around the four-six years old range. Still a lot newer than my current cameras, that's for sure. Right now, my current major consideration is an Olympus E-PL3; KEH is selling one for $115 shipped that looks in fantastic condition, and I'm watching a few on eBay going for similar prices. I love the idea of the articulating LCD screen as well, being able to easily get overhead or low shots and all of that. That said, I'm more than open to alternative considerations. While I want the Olympus in-body stabilization, I'll also admit that a built-in EVF would be far better than having to unlearn all my DSLR viewfinder-using habits. The only trouble there is that all the models I've looked at that have built-in EVFs go for rather a lot more than the ones that don't, but maybe I'm just not looking in the right places, or not going far enough back? And on top of all of that, there's the issues of what's gonna last, and what's gonna fall apart. I've been doing some research, but aside from a few key issues(seen several Olympuses with missing mode knobs, and a few Panasonics with delaminating screens), I haven't exactly found a lot of solid, consistent information on what's likely to break. And given we're looking at older models, used, without much of a warranty...Making sure I don't end up with a lemon is a bit important. Okay, I think that should be everything! I've been digging deep the last few days, so I'm sure I rambled a fair bit, but in summary: -Wanting to upgrade from ancient DSLR kit. -Have about $100 to spend on the camera body; looking at older models. -Strongly considering the E-PL3, open to alternatives at a similar budget. -Major bonus points for built-in EVF, but haven't seen good prices on any models with one. -Need to know if there are any durability issues that could mess me up. Thanks a bunch for any help or advice you can offer!
