    Hi guys!

    I want to buy a new camera, can you guys help me to chose? I have some experiance with analog SLRs, my adventure with digital cameras (Cannon 30D) was short. I love the mirrorless cameras that are now on the market, I'm looking for something easy to use, most of the time i will be taking family pictures (low light - indoors, kid's playing, vacation etc... ). I want something small, with easy to use auto settings (so my wife will love it) and something i can play with as advanced amateur. I'm strugglig with my choice between X-T10 16-50mm, OM-D E-M5 MK I 12-50 mm, OM-D E-M10 MK I 14-42 EZ and A6000. For now the E-M5 is my top choice because of it's body build i like the weight, solid constuction and image stabilization, but other options are also tempting. I'm worrying that E-M5 is much older then the others and it's only 4/3. My priority easy to use and good picture in low light. Budget around 700$

    P.S. I know i want all in one but your opinion will be helpfull.

    Thanks!!

    I love my OM-D E-M5 (original), but low light is not a high priority for me. I do have a few examples in this little gallery -

    The Fuji X-series are regarded as low light champs, but only with manual focus. Olympus M4/3 are a good all-around choice, but they do inflict a dense menu system on beginners. Panasonic M4/3 controls are a little more simplified, arguably a better fit for beginners who want to Auto shoot most of the time. Also, some of the better Pannys shine in AF, including low light. The a6000 has been a huge hit for Sony. But the E-mount lens selection is a little hit-and-miss.

    For all the ugly details I suggest that you use a web search for lots of sites.

    KCook thanks for advice!
    I took the A6000 - cheapest of them all so i can afford a prime lens to it.
    overall very mobile camera, nice grip, great pic(all of them i belive would work for me), usb charger is a huge advantage ( can charge camera with same cord as phone)
