    ok..PENs are out.

    That brings it back to the EM10mk3, EM5mk2, Em1mk1 or wait for EM5mk3.

    Anyone can comment on the Panny's G series?

      Just a couple of additional thoughts:-

      1) The E-M10mk3 seems to offer very little extra than the mk2 and is quite a bit more expensive.

      2) I think I am right in saying that most (if not all) Panasonic cameras will not have any IS with the two Olympus lenses that your friend already has.

        1 - agree
        2 - the G8 and G80 are stabilised, there may be others?

          I agree with John on the EM10 mk3 doesn't seem worth it unless you are into video. An EM5 mk2 or an EM1 mk1 seem to be the best bets. prices are likely to be similar especially second hand so I'd say it would all come down to handling preferences. Only other consideration is if she is going to get into astro-imaging then the EM5 mk2 seems to have a slightly less noisy sensor for long exposures from what I've read.

                Bargain, and a great system.

                The 1ii transformed my photography (with the 300 & 12-100), and I have bought no equipment apart from a few batteries and cards in the nearly 12 months since getting them.

                It's often said (generally correctly) that gear never makes you a better photographer, but when the capabilities of the gear have improved as much as this did for CAF (for BIF) and IBIS performance (no longer carrying a tripod for landscape photography) it isn't actually true.

                  Wow what a bargain, that was definitely too good to turn down. Doubt any of the Photo show offers will be anything like that good! Look forward to welcoming her to the forum.

                    I have had the same experience, not bought anything for over a year now.

                      Since she serves with me in photography and I have been using that Leica 42.5/1.2 and the 25/1.4 ..hope I don't poison her to those new f1.2 primes

                        That sounds like a bargain! She should be delighted with all that then. Yes, she needs to get on here & hopefully be guided well with any questions (& not misguided ).
