My Camera Gear 

In the past I've had various dSLRs all of which have been Nikons and I have loved them. In the past year I've made the change over to mirrorless and I haven't looked back. 

Below I'll go through my favourite cameras and the choice of lens. You'll find a choice of cameras depending on your budget. 

New Camera - Panasonic G7

For the past few months I've been using a Panasonic G7 which is another Micro Four Thirds camera. I have created a separate review of this so make sure you check it out. Panasonic G7 Review. 

 

Good Camera - Olympus OM-D E-M10

A brilliant camera, this is the entry level OM-D camera and it really won't disappoint. This is the Mark I version and you'll be able to pick up this model for around £370 which is a bargain. 

There is a Mark II of this camera available which has slight improves on everything and the controls have changed slightly. If you picked the Mark I over the Mark II you won't be upset. 

 

 

 

Best Camera - Olympus OM-D E-M1

This is the top end of the OM-D range with the OM-D E-M5 Mark II sitting between the two. This one has been out for a number of years and there is rumours that a Mark II version will be released in 2016. The price of this is £879 which is still cheaper than most dSLRs. 

A weather-sealed casing with a 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and next-generation TruePic VII image processor, which uses Fine Detail Technology II to get the very best still image and movie quality out of every lens. Equipped with 5-axis IS to counteract movement and dual fast AF which Olympus claims to be one of the world’s fastest AF systems. 

Camera Lenses

We all know that lenses can cost anything from £90 up to £40,000+ and I'm not in the market to spend this sort of money on lenses so these are my lenses that I'd recommend for the average person. 

  • Olympus 70-300mm f4.0-5.6 ZUIKO Digital ED - If you're looking for a lens with some extra range then this is a great choice. For the price you really can't go wrong. Highly rated at the price of £350. 
  • Olympus 45mm f1.8 ZUIKO Digital - This is my new everyday lens. This covers all the bases I need, from portrait to landscape this is awesome. I rate this massively at around £179.0
  • Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 Asph. Power OIS - A sharp and quick lens that compliments the OM-D range of cameras perfectly. Once you fit this to your camera you'll wonder how you lived without it. You should be able to find this for about £699
  • Olympus M.ZUIKO 60mm f/2.8 Macro - If Macro is your thing then this is the one for you. Great for portraits too, I am yet to see a back review or comment about this. You'll find this for around £350 which is a great price.
