So my wife was a shutter bug from before we got married. She shot Canon stuffs. When I decided it was time to get a camera I knew I wanted to shoot manual lenses. I wanted a camera with IBIS. I found that the Olympus E-P2 was very inexpensive, so I picked it up with a Novoflex M42 adapter, and grabbed some M42 lenses. My wife and I thought it'd be a good idea to be on the same system, so she spent a few hundred dollars picking up a Panasonic G5 and a few lenses. I'm ready to upgrade from the E-P2. I want something with IBIS and focus peaking. In the micro four-thirds world, that's a $1000 body. There are a few alternatives: Pentax k-mount cameras: either the K-01 or an entry-level DSLR. wait for the new 5-axis Sonys Since we want to share a mount system, I'd like to meet the needs of my wife as well. So I'm looking at where we can go next: I spend $1000 on a new micro four-thirds body. We wait for Sony's E-mount IBIS cameras. She had a Sony cybershot before getting her Canons and enjoyed them. When I worked camera sale in highschool I always thought they had the best menu system. Now that Sony's released the mount specs there seems to be a good future for them. Right now, though, it doesn't look like good lenses are as inexpensive as they are for the Pentax. I pick up a K-01 and beat on it for a while. I'm not a big fan of the design, but they're getting very inexpensive very quickly. There's good, inexpensive, sealed DSLRs to make the wife happy. The biggest plus that I see is lens availability. If there's a lens available, it looks like it can be had in K-mount. It would make it easy to outfit the wife inexpensively. What do you guys think?
