Yes, I'm sure you will not regret it. You will regret it if you delay and miss the opportunity.
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.
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
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 . The
only time I was at CN Tower my camera was a Kodak
110 However, if I were to go now, an ultra wide
lens would definitely be part of the kit, if only for the
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.
Roll on the "cute hen" !
I'm buying the K-mount adapter .... though that tele lens
has caught my eye, as well
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 ..
... mind you, I got lots of pics showing why I should have had/used one .
