Looking for advice regarding Canon G15/Olympus Pen

06 November 2012 - 12:23 AM

Hi all, this is my first forum post here at Wetpixel. I have posted the same question in another forum as well, if you happen to run into the same post at two places.

Now to the subject at hand. I recently had a leek in my housing for my Canon G10, and I feel like its time to upgrade the camera equipment a bit.

However I don’t know exactly what I would like to get at this point. After reading several reviews I am leaning towards either the Olympus E-PL3 or the Canon G15. The price does differ a fair amount.

So the big question is. What would you do?
The way I shoot is mostly Macro at night. I have an Intova iss 4000 strobe on a tray for my old WP-DC28 casing. I use a canon 7d on land and I don’t feel like I can afford a housing and strobes for this camera at this point.

£645 housing, Olympus PT-EP05L
£306 Camera, Olympus pen E-PL3
£199 macro lens, PTMC-01
£60 Lens adapter, PMLA-EP01
Total price - £1210
+ shipping

canon G15
£195 Canon WP-DC48
£499 Canon G15
$199 Macro lens Dyron +7 67mm macro lens (DY.UCL67II)
$ 100 Lens adapter The Dyron 67mm Adapter for Canon G10/G11/G12 Housing (DY.ADC28/34) lens adapter wont fit this camera however Dyron is working on a new model for that housing and will be out soon. My guess is that it will be priced around $100
Total Price – about £860 (depending on currency conversion)
+ shipping

Kindly looking forward to an answer from you.
