These are reduced in many places to make way for the new model, which appears to be an incremental rather than game changing improvement. This seems the best deal for the standard dual lens kit.

This is a micro two thirds camera so you are getting the equivalent of 28 -300mm zoom in full frame terms. 3 axis in body image stabilisation, good high ISO performance and a very compact size with the 14-42mm EZ seem a good deal for this price.

Camera can be used like a point and shoot but also has full manual control and a fully customisable menu system opening up loads of extra features.

Same price at Park Cameras.

Personally, if you're happy with this price I would get John Lewis to price match and have their warranty
Great camera and great system .
Great system I have the em-5 mk2 but this is an incredible camera at a great price plus it looks awesome
3% Quidco from Wex making the price £467 (_;)

Have dealt with Wex in the past and can thoroughly recommend them. Heat added.
Micro Two Thirds sounds interesting What would be the advantage over a Nikon D5300 for example? As that's the camera I've been looking at for a few months.
I currently have a nex 6 with the 50-200 and 16-50 lens, would this be much of an upgrade?

Size is the largest advantage, they're normally smaller cameras and because of the smaller sensor and having no mirror box (hence the term mirrorless) means the lenses can be smaller too. Here's the EM10 with 40-150mm lens attached compared to the D5300 with the 55-200mm lens which offers roughly the same field of view (both lenses zoom out to an equivalent of 300mm when factoring their crop factor):

As for this camera specifically, other advantages include in-body image stabilisation, which means every lens you put on it will benefit from being image stabilised, a touch screen, and a faster continuous shooting rate which is nice to have for action, sports and wildlife photography. However the Nikon has its advantages too- it's got a superior sensor both in terms of being larger and producing generally better images, the larger body means a more robust grip and better ergonomics, and as an older system there's a larger selection of lenses to choose from.

Finally there's the viewfinder, where the decision on which is better is much more subjective. DSLRs use an optical viewfinder which shows you want you're looking at, while mirrorless cameras use electronic viewfinders that show you what the image would look like if based on if you took a photo with the current settings. Both have their pros and cons (and EVFs vary wildly in quality between mirrorless cameras) and a lot of photographers will have their individual preferences, so try and give both cameras a go to see which you prefer!

I'm guessing you mean NEX 6? :P

But yeah, what is it you dislike or find limiting about your current camera?

Biggest benefit I would say is that MFT cameras have loads of lenses that are also affordable. And the small compact size.

lack of lenses really this is only one portent lens really the 50mm 1.8 which isn't bad lens per say. The only option after that is investing in some Zeiss glass which is then really needs a decent camera from the A range A7* or something.

At least with moving to MFT incremental increases in lens's will be easier and not £300 or £1000 pound.

I do like the sony camera and think the auto focus is impressive and also pics in low light come out extremely well. things I don't like are button placements and chasing focus point options isn't as easier as it should be.

The 30mm 3.5 Macro is pretty cool for under £200, but yeah, if there's certain lenses you want/need for ht type of photography you want to do then moving across to M43 may be a good option.
Good price! I'd be a bit wary about this format dying out though, they're getting APS-C size sensors in just as small bodies these days just take a look at pretty much all other manufacturers.

No effectively a downgrade as the NEX-6 has a bigger sensor. However this camera has a better range of lenses available for it.

Actually m4/3 isn't a dying format. Sony sells loads of APS-C cameras in a small body, the A6000 is the biggest selling Digital changeable lens camera but they are massively focused on full-frame now which means there is a lack of lenses and they haven't released a new one in 18 months, they have all been full frame ones.
Never heard of this brand, I stick to Sony or Canan like the pros.

Lol. Never heard of Canan either.
IMHO consumers used to think only canon and Nikon make decent cameras but if u look at today's review many brands are making class leading camera in all formats let it be 1", micro 4/3, APS or full format. Don't think u can go much wrong with the major players being Canon, Nikon, Olympus, LUMIX, Fujifilm, Sony, Pentax and the mighty Leica. If you already have lens of a certain make then it's pretty much a no brainer.
Hot, lot of camera and glass for the pennies.
canon and nikon are far away with compact mirorless cameras. leading brands in this range of cameras are Sony and Olympus so far. cammera on deal is old model, need to buy Mark II already. i own M2 :-)

micro 4/3rd has more lenses.. but look at what ones youd actually want and compare reviews/prices
