Actually, don't! So the fiancee said she was thinking of getting me a camera for xmas and to jump on anything I wanted that turned up in a black friday deal. I told her I hadn't asked because it would be too expensive for an xmas gift and she told me $300. When I stopped laughing, I told her that would make an excellent donation to the cause and get me into a better camera than I had planned on buying in January. A friend recommended a Lumix DMC-LX7, but I'm not sure that would be enough improvement over my crap p&s and would rather save my pennies for a better camera. I'd use it for minis and for nature stuff (we like to hike, wildlife, waterfalls, clouds, etc). So I've been eyeing the Olympus OM-D E-M5 mirrorless and the Canon Rebel T5i with the 18-135mm EF-S IS STM Lens Kit (Amazon is running a promo for $150 off the Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM Lens which I thought might be cool for nature stuff?). I'm already familiar with the Canon's menus and whatnot, so I'm leaning that way. Any thoughts?
