Re: E520 - stick, wait or upgrade now?

I couldn't afford (justify to my better half) the 12-40, although there were some great split kit deals that could have been good this year, but around the same time I won a (4/3's) 12-60 SWD lens at a very good price of ebay which I now use on the E-M1. Admittedly, the 12-40 would have been better with the constant f2.8 but would not have had the same reach.

I took many night photos at Sydney's Vivid Festival using it on the E-M1 (adjusting distortion plus colour etc in Capture One).

I haven't got around to uploading them yet (apart from those two).
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
