Is this an upgrade, or not? Olympus vs my older Panasonic
I have a Panasonic Lumix G6, and was looking at buying a travel lens, something like 14-140 mm or similar. It turned out that the only lens I could find in my price range, has a problem with many Panasonic cameras, producing "shutter shock" which apparently also other lenses do with those cameras. The only problem I've had with my Lumix G 14-42 mm has been that it doesn't produce as sharp photos as my other lenses. So I don't know what to do. I want a fast and sharp lens but without image stabilisation in my camera body, the only lens I'm left with is this 14-140mm with the shutter shock issue, since the rest of them are out of my price range right now.
So instead I started thinking of waiting for a while, saving some money and instead buy another camera body, an Olympus to be specific, to not be dependent on image stabilisation in lenses (and because I've been impressed by Olympus products so far). But if I buy another camera I really want it to be an upgrade, not to buy a new camera just for the image stabilisation.
So I was looking at this the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. I'm still not great at reading specs and assess the quality of the camera.
What's important to me is to get sharp images, a fast and light camera, wifi to transfer images (as I have in my Panasonic), image stabilisation, good low-light performance. I also want it to work with my Nissin i40 flash.
Do you have an idea?
