Re: Need advise- contemplating to buy hybrid slr camera
Hi,

I'm no pro photog and I don't make a living out of photog skillz...but my take is, go a bit more and stump up for a full on SLR (unless you already have a DSLR). You'll appreciate it in the long run since photography is 'addictive' once you got the hang of it. You only gotta decide what 'system' you want to get into, i.e Nikon or Canon since the lenses aren't interchangeable betwixt the brands.

That said,
The Lumix has got rave reviews and so does the Olympus. The Olympus however has a bit extra in its 'pedigree' and choice of Zuiko lenses. Good lenses.

I say, Olympus.

Re: Need advise- contemplating to buy hybrid slr camera
salam n hi all

would be best if you can compare both candidates at your friendly foto dealer hands-on

then you can see which one suit/satisfy you best

e.g. foto output, access to various menu/functions, handling, possibility to expand with its system - biasa la...d pros n d cons, etc

look also to 'reputable' reviews [dpreview.com, etc.]...which probably u dah jengok dah

but at the same time...just have a look at few DSLRs [kekalau u r yet to own 1]...since the prices of your candidates are not that far off from 'entry' DSLR if i am not mistaken

good luck on your hunting zul...n update us later

Re: Need advise- contemplating to buy hybrid slr camera
Dear All,

I love DSLR.. but the size and weight is my concern, thats why I preferred Hybrid. Smaller and can perform as good as 95% of DSLR. Its the same system with DSLR indeed but with mirror less image, no view finder.

Lumix GF2 comes with pancake 14mm lens and 14-42mm, which I feel useless as u have one pancake f2.5 and another 14-42mm. The image stabilizer is in the lens compare to olympus in the body.The image stabilizer is the main concern. Lumix video shoot is good with 1080 full HD and stereo recording.

While Oplympus pen epl-2 comes with 14-42mm and 42-150mm f3.5-5.6. It also has the filter mode eg. panorama, pinhole, soften and etc. The disadvantage of this camera is the image stabilizer is in the body but cheaper lens.

Zuhefly,

I understand yer concern weight and size wise, but try the new Canon 550D or Nikon's D90. Both are smallish, with the Canon being quite small and light.

Most importantly, with either system, You will then have access to a veritable arsenal of lenses and both D90 and the 550D shoot HD vids too.

I on the other hand, don't like small-ish cameras because I feel they're less stable compared to the big 'uns.

Try the big ones and how they feel in yer hands. Even tho' some are heavy, you'll be surprised at how well they handle when they're in yer hands.

Both the oly and lumix have the pancake lens option. The pancake looks like a good partner when on holiday. Any reason why you take out the NEX-3/5 from the consideration? The panosweep looks like a convenience feature for a landscape photographer. My only concern is the battery life for all the m4/3 system since they rely on the digital viewfinder on the LCD to compose photo-looks like a spare battery (or two) is a must if you're on a full day trip.

Dont quite agree that hybrid can go 95% near DSLR ... from what I know the sensor used is different.

For me I go for Lumix as they use Leica lenses. 1st class Bro.

I have both a DSLR and a compact camera, the DSLR is good for serious shots, but I find that I keep the compact camera with me all the time and it is really handy and convenient.
My brother bought a Nikon P7000 recently and I find the size, weight and quality of the pictures really satisfying. You get close to the quality of a DSLR, 1/2 the weight, twice the convenience... result is you take and share more spontaneous pictures.
