A couple of years back I used a Cannon DSLR from a family member for a few days. Since then I've been wanting to get a 4/3 camera. I'm very close to getting one and have been looking at the Sony Nex F3. I have seen a few go around the $350 mark but I haven't managed to bag one. So I've been thinking of maybe getting something else meanwhile, something along the lines of a couple years 4/3 old camera. Need: - Both an easy automatic system when I just want to point and shoot - Decent low light pictures - Works fine with the original lens - $200 What will I do with it: I intend to take shots of collectibles in a white box. Moments of nature Events Pictures of cars What would you recommend as a learning camera? ============================================================================ Update: out of the options I ended up getting an Olympus E-PM1 kit for $150 The main reason was the price, other reasons are the camera is small and light, the controls are simpler than some similar competitors and it has very good reviews. A secondary reason is that in the future I may get another Olympus so the learning curve and the lenses would carry over. Other options that were considered were the Panasonic GX1(much more expensive), the Nikon 1J1, Panasonic GH3, Sony Nex C3 and the Olympus Epl3.
