I am using Nikon D7000. Now I thought of buying a Mirrorless Camera. In my mind I thought of Fujifilm or Olympus. But both of them are very expensive , so I thought of selling my old D7000, kit lens, and 35mm lens 1.8 . I wonder how much will I get?

Do you think I should get a Fujifilm X-T1 or Olympus OM-D E-M5? What lense should i get?

Selling your entire Nikon setup wont be able to pay for the Fuji X-T1 unless you top up additional funds.

Cant really advise you on which camera to get but I think the Oly EM5 is more affordable for now.

Budget wise u might wana share and the shots u wana take in general.

A quick check at BnS will give u an idea of how much the D7000 can fetch.

A good starter kit will be the EM5 and the 12-50mm (24-100 equivalent) with a good prime like the 17/1.8 or the 25/1.8.

U can get a pretty good condition EM5 for below $700 and a brand new 17/1.8 for below $500 with the Oly promo now.

If u have a higher budget , by all means go for the EM1 or the XT1 , either one will give u much much improved Perf.

thanks a lot for the information. I really appreciate it. I am going to save my money for XT1. hopefully the price will drop by end of the year.

Hi, EM5 for RM3000 with the 12-50mm kit lens is too expensive. I wouldn't pay more than SGD1000 for a brand new EM5/12-50mm set as I believe most shops in Funan are selling around the SGD1000 mark for this kit already. Getting this setup in BnS would be prob $600 for the body and $200 for the lens.

Maybe you can also consider the EM10 model as it comes with the EM5 sensor and EM1 processor and is a much newer model offering functions EM5 doesn't have. A brand new Em10 with 14-42EZ pancake is selling at SGD1140.

No prob, the XT1's one solid camera too :)
Do check the price for XT1 and compare before buying as Fuji gives international warranty so no loss buying in SG or MH.

one is m43 sensor, one is APS-C sensor. sensor different size. lenses also different - different offerings, different pricing also.

EM5 is already a few years old. If you want to match up, EM1 is a better match to XT1.

Agreed. Either the EM1 or XT1 will be good enough to last u for years.

The EM5(elite) is also just a rehash of the EM5 and not really worth it. If sticking to EM5 , get the EM5 with the ver 2.0 firmware.
