i got a 2nd hand E-PL5 and it's great! you can see my shots using that camera here: <click here for link>
a got mine for 15k and that's with 14-40mm kit lens already.
I just started this hobby around 2 weeks ago and I spent 30k already. haha i gets expensive and all of my gears are 2nd hand mind you. Normally, one should spend more time practicing on the kit lens but I saw some really great deals on 2nd hand lenses that I couldn't pass up. So now I have panasonic lumix 20mm f/1.7, m.zuiko 40-150mm and fujian 35mm f/1.7 lenses + the kit lens.
I've allotted around 200hrs++ researching on what camera should I get as a beginner. I was about to buy a Canon 650D but then a friend suggested that I should try mirrorless since it's lightweight/ more portable plus cheaper lenses. He said the best camera is the one that is with you. So i spent 3 full days reading and watching videos about mirrorless cameras and I zeroed in on Olympus E-PL5 (also because I saw an awesome deal on olx hehe). I was debating whether I should get the OM-D EM10 but ultimately the E-PL5 won.
