| p.2 #2 · EOS M - who likes it? |
I would have bought one if they had come out sooner. I ended up going M43 which currently has the best selection of lenses. It has been a bumpy road for me, but that is mostly my fault. I bought a lower end body and miss some of the features and handling of the more expensive one, plus learning the controls has been slow and frustrating for me since I have never used anything but a Canon.
But it is a lot easier to carry around than my 20D. I was hesitant to buy any lenses for the camera other than the kit zoom because I wasn't sure I'd like it. But I think I have decided to keep it now.
The negative on the M for me is that there are only two lenses. I know it can use the EOS lenses, but I wanted a smaller system. If I want to use my current lenses, I'd rather just get a new DSLR.
I got an Olympus E-P3 last year and, hot damn. the learning curve was tuff: tiny awkward controls and horrid menu organization. Flash behavior is much different than EOS so I even muffed up flash pics. Plus wee light cameras are a lot harder to hold steady than a DSLR, so I got lots of blurry pics at first. Basically I had to brace myself a lot more carefully and double shutter speeds over my 7D. Now I'm hitting about 90% but have to try a lot harder compared to using my 7D/5D2. Love the E-P3 with the new Oly 17mm F1.8. But, yeah, I probably would not have bought the E-P3 if Oly didn't have such a nice EVF (VF-2). Can't imagine shooting everything at arm's length...
