Yes embarrassingly so, I traded in my SD Quattro, decided it was too big and bulky in the end. Output great (actually fantastic) but on balance I still reached for my Oly bag(s) on more occasions.

Sorry Ross no harm intended :)

I feel the shame Ed I really do. I'll try to enjoy it :D

I've still got my E-M5 MkII and original E-M1, I've now got a tough decision on which to let go :confused:

My new Pen F is giving me many of the nice new features of the Mk2........at half the price. And it is better looking!

The Pen-F is lovely but that wouldn't sit comfortably with my zooms, however it is a consideration for my prime selection *yes
Oh dear, another temptation...

My Mk1 is for my zooms, in particular the 40-150 Pro.
It is great with primes (I have three m43rds and two OMs).

Tough call to make.

The E-M1 MkII arrived and it's everything I imagined (so far), although I've not tried any C-AF yet.
Very snappy in operation, very clean files at iso64.
Very (yes another very) pleased with it :)

You'll love it :)

I part exchanged my E-m5 Mkii for a Sigma 150-600 with Wex. They actually offered me 20 more than they quoted when they examined the camera. I decided in the end that my E-m1 Mki was a better back up.

How - since you do a fair amount of landscapes, I'd really appreciate your thoughts compared to the E-M1 once you've got a few images under your belt.

Will do Paul, it's been exclusively test shots so far but today we're planning a little expedition (it's sleeting around this away) so I should begin to get an impression :)

One key feature I will say is simply amazing, it's the image stabilisation, I can see it being really useful for modulation of ISO in low light landscapes (hand held).

Has anyone noticed a difference in the focus accuracy between manual, single and CAF?

I received my EM1 mk ii today. A special mention for Wex photographic for paying for delivery as there was no way of informing them of business hours where I work to which delivery was scheduled.

Looking forward to see what the Bigma can do during airshow season.
