Go or no go
I am using Olympus DSLR for a long time. Today I use E-1 with 14-54 lens plus 40-150 mk. 2 and 35 Macro. Used to own also E-520.
I feel the need for higher megapixel sensor but love my E-1 and also invested in my past lenses ans a flash. Recently started to read about the Micro 4-3 and have a line of questions-
1.How good are the 4-3 lenses on a Micro 4-3 camera? Will I feel difference in focusing speed?
2. I can get a PEN E-PL1 for a very good price and a PEN E-PL2 for about 20% more. Is there a big difference between the two? Is there a difference in IQ?
3. Kit lens 14-42 old and new version - is the new one a big improvement over the old?
3. How important is the feature of being able to change the aspect ratio in a camera?
Anyway something that bothers me a lot is the prices of the new Micro 4-3 lenses - why are they so high?
Or should I just stay with the regular Olympus 4-3 and look for a secondhand E-620?
