fist post and new user here , thanks for all your posts ! I am looking for something to upgrade my ultra-zoom from Panasoic , and didn't jump into DSLR for the past 4 years . I like the mirrorless and 4/3 . first I looked into nex-5n , rr and nex-6 . it feels good in hand , very small . then Nikon V1/J1 because of xmas deals , and there is v1+10-30+30-110 deal in B&H for 399 . It disappeared the second day ( Jan 1st ) . concern of these two is that it locked you in one vendor and format . Olympus and Panasonic provide more choice for 4/3 body and lens . G5 is probably the most fit for me , easy in the hand and lot of control . searching through menu is still painly when you are in the middle of shooting pictures . Any G5 deal lately ?
