Hi there,

I have been sat on the fence about upgrading my existing camera to a d7000. A bit of a background story, I wanted to get into photography but was concerned that if I bought a d-slr I would not use it. I came to this conclusion due to the size and complexity of the camera. Because of this I bought a Panasonic G3. I also bought a F1.7 pancake lense as I primarily was going to take portrait/family shots and it got a good review. I have really enjoyed using this camera but feel I want to step up to a true D-SLR. I have discounted the 3200/5200 as I want to really go further than a starter D-SLR. Also I know the d7000 replacement is not a million miles away but I generally dont buy tech when it released unless it is a serious improvement.

So after all that my question is fairly simple. My budget just about stretches to a D7000 body and possibly 2 lenses, am I going to see a marked improvement in picture from a modern 4/3rd camera to a mid range D-SLR?

I know that there is many factors like settings and actual photographic skill but on a technical level if someone could give me any ideas/pointers constructive criticism I would be much appreciated.

On a side note, I have been seriously bitten by the photography bug, I am taking a course in a months time so would like to get the camera before then.

Regards

David
