Hi there, Having only ever owned compact cameras, I have decided I would like to upgrade to something that can produce better photographs, particularly as I am due to go on a long holiday. I have ruled out DSLRs due to size and cost, as well as Bridge cameras. I have decided I would like to buy a csc, which will provide me with better quality and scope to learn more about taking photos, whilst being a bit more portable than bigger cameras. I am however, constrained a bit by money and cannot opt for the more expensive models. So I am looking at the Panasonic GM1 and the Sony A5100. Any thoughts on which is better value? And are there some other cameras I should consider? Also, one question I would really like help with is about lenses - if I was to buy the Sony CSC, what other type of lens would be useful to buy? I will be wanting to use my camera for holidays, events, landscapes etc. Given that I am buying a camera that can use multiple lenses I need to have an idea of what type of other lens I might need or use! In this sense I am not clear on what the lens it comes with is useful for - I presume it is fairly standard. But how far does it reach i.e. what would its equivalent be in terms of optical zoom? Any help with these questions would be appreciated. Thanks.
