    Yes, I'm sure you will not regret it. You will regret it if you delay and miss the opportunity.

    Hi I_ET,

    If it's the Prime and Zoom ... go for it :) If it's the Prime and
    one of the toy lenses, give it some consideration.

    Cheers,

    I almost pressed the button to buy but held off....... lack of a tilting screen may be an issue, as well as lack of telephoto zoom. Having been using my GF2 over the past 2 week-ends, I have to review just how much I am spending and on what! Currently the next item on my wish list is likely to be a choice between a Q-kit, an E-PL3 or a P510 with its megazoom which would probably mean I would only need to take 1 camera/lens on my next overseas trip

    If a movable screen is important then you might want to
    consider the SX 40, as well. Regarding the SX 40, if history
    means anything, there should be a replacememt being
    announced this month. As for a two(2) lens travel kit, how about
    the Tamron 18-270 (PZD) and Tamron 200-500 in a Canon
    or Nikon mount? A tad bigger kit than the P510 or SX40/SX??
    but a larger sensor, as well :)

    Cheers,

    Decisions, decisions.... I may end up geting one of the cheaper Samsung wifi enabled compacts instead! I have the Panasonic 45-200 to go with the GF2 (or G2) and it's also a very light lens. Taking the MFT opion would only deprive me of the extreme wide-angle option, which I may need if trying to get all of the CN Tower into a shot

    Re: CN Tower ..... depends how close you are :D. The
    only time I was at CN Tower my camera was a Kodak
    110 :eek: However, if I were to go now, an ultra wide
    lens would definitely be part of the kit, if only for the
    CN Tower. :)

    Cheers,

    Q10 announced and a zoom telephoto too. Suggestions I have seen are around £550 for a twin zoom kit to include the telephoto. Shame it is so expensive but maybe it will drop in price, given a little time. Alas currently out of my price range for my impending trip to Canada but perhaps if Santa is reading this ..........

    The original Q twins lens kit at £308 from tesco.com should be a tempting option.

    I've managed to resist it so far.

    I'm buying the K-mount adapter :cool: .... though that tele lens
    has caught my eye, as well :eek:

    I bought one of the Chinese adapters - it works, but you need a serious tripod for it, especially if you stick a 300mm on :). Even for a shorter lens.

    Thanks Steve ... I've never owned a tripod and only used one about 23 years ago :eek: ..
    ... mind you, I got lots of pics showing why I should have had/used one ;).

    Cheers,

    Jack
