I am in a real quandry here, I currently use 2 panasonic cameras, the FZ150 and the LX3 i think both are great however i really miss the smooth images and depth of field my old DSLR gave me. A few months ago I borrowed a GF2 and I can honestly say they are the best quality photos I have taken in a long time. The LX3 is great but I have never been 100% with the FZ as far as IQ goes.
Its got me thinking, its my birthday soon and the wife as usual will be wanting to know what i want. I would love the G6 but that is well out of my price range, as such the G5 may be my best option. Here is my problem though, i need to sell one to pay for a G5 (plus birthday cash) or both for the G6. Would this be a wise move?
I keep a reef aquarium and the FZ does a good job up close with the Panasonic close up lens, any idea how the 14-42mm would cope up close? There is no way i would be able to afford a macro lens.
I suppose what i am trying to say is; is the macro any good with the standard lens of the G series, is the G6 that much better than the G5 (which is half its price), which camera do i sell, both have all the add on lenses (genuine panasonic ones - FZ telephotos, LX wideange) so that should help the resale value.
