Re: Hello - and a wee bit of advise, please!

Hi, and welcome.

I can't speak as any sort of expert on either of the cameras, and they really are quite different. I'm still happy with my E-400, mainly because I like the size and shape, although sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a camera with IS I haven't yet been convinced I should part with the necessary cash.

I think it usually works out cheaper to buy a camera with a lens rather than getting one separately, but it depends on how much money you can spend. The kit lenses are very good, small and light too. I'm happy enough with the 14-42 and 40-150 and have also got the 70-300, but the more expensive lenses are faster, which can be a bonus in poor light.

It might also be worth your while discussing prices with your LCE manager, they'll often match, or nearly match, online prices. They certainly have with my purchases.
