Re: Is it mid life crisis

Because micro 4/3 has a short depth from the lens flange to the sensor, adapters are available to fit many classic manual focus lenses. I've tried one or two, and got some pretty good results but haven't pursued it much as I prefer the convenience of the system lenses. This could well be partly to do with the kind of stuff I shoot. There are various features that are really helpful with manual lenses, such as viewfinder magnification and focus peaking - magnification is certainly is available for MF lenses, I think peaking is as well but no doubt someone will put us right if not.

There are quite a few classic lens users on here so you should get plenty of practical advice. Good luck with whatever you choose - I will be interested to see the results.
