Hi guys

I have always been interested in photography, and now I can afford to get myself a decent secondhand camera but I don't know where to start.

I have been told that it's a good idea to start off with a micro 4/3 rather than a full slr, which sounds sensible. Can anyone recommend a good model to start off with though please?

I'm going to New Zealand at the end of the year, so really want a good camera that i've had time to practice with before then

All advice welcome!
