Panasonic Lumix G3: My New Baby

December 30, 2011

I used to own a DSLR before but had to sell it because: 1) The gear was too heavy and big for an everyday camera; 2) Didn’t have time anymore to join photoshoots: 3) I simply lost the passion; and 4) I was funding a new project.

Now the time came that I was able to raise funds for a new camera, and I guess I’m pretty much upbeat with dabbling with this hobby again. Fortunately, there’s a new camera format which addresses the portability issue and at the same time offers image quality which can be at par with what DSLRs offer.  It’s called micro 4/3.

And so I decided to pull the trigger for a Panasonic Lumix G3. Would have went for an Olympus EP3 if budget was not an issue. Price- and feature-wise though, the G3 is probably the best bang-for-the-buck m4/3 camera in the market today.

The package I got is a white Panasonic G3 body with 14-42mm and 45-200mm zoom lenses for 39k. But I’m planning to sell the 45-200mm lens to fund a new lens purchase (20mm f/1.7!).

Can’t wait to go out and shoot with this baby! 🙂
