Re: More Brighton with EM-1

I do not shoot macro so no need for 60mm - the only lenses I may consider if they are priced low are some 4/3rd lenses but just a like not a need.

Superb camera though and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others, for me it delivers great work and as I favour primes it makes a great kit that is light and easy to carry.
I'm really looking forward to getting mine. I hope to be able to merge my two systems. I'm getting the 12-40mm 2.8 and with a couple of EM-1 bodies, I should be able to get rid of two EM-5s which I think are too flimsy, one underwater housing for EM-5, and two E5s. the E3 is probably not worth anything, and besides - it's a trusty old friend. But with the two EM-1 bodies, a small set of m4/3 lenses, which I seem to build on for underwater use. I also have a rather comprehensive 4/3 collection of lenses, which I love for wildlife and macro.

I'm curious whether the EM-1 will manage the Sigma 150 and 105 macros, though, has anyone tried them? They are painfully slow on the E5.
