Hi everyone.

Newbe alert !

simple task for you experts , ive always wanted SLR quality photos, however the size always put me off, ive recently discovered 3/4 cameras as they seem to be compact (ish) and very capable.

therefore, if you were me and especially if you own one....

panasonic lumix gf1 vs sony nex-5

which one would you buy and is the pancake lens worth the extra cash on the pana ? also do they both have image stabilisation ?

thanks in advance !
