Re: Hello from Dorset

After all that talk about getting a Pen-F, I just bought an OM-D E-M1 (Mk1) kit with the 12-40 pro lens USED here in the UK for a shade under 600 with 6 month warranty which I thought was a pretty good deal. I had been looking at an E-M5 Mk2 but the used prices are still quite high here in the UK and I felt that the E-M1 has similar features (bar high res) that I was interested in. Plus I see the body as an 'interim' body which will help me decide whether I want to stay at the E-M1 size or move to the E-M5 size cameras in the future (my previous Olympus body was an E-M10 Mk 1 which I sold earlier in the year).

I did flirt with getting the pen-f for that sexy form factor, the mono mode and the 20mb sensor for a time but, I ideally wanted a weather sealed combo this time around plus I'm quite happy with the 16mb sensor and I can get pretty good mono conversions using Silver Efex Pro 2 via Lightroom. A big bonus with the E-M1 is that it is compatible with my current Lightroom version (5.7.1) I was intending to upgrade to Lr6 but it seems that is no longer possible. I will keep my Panasonic GM1 and primes though for those times when stealth and portability is key.

So hopefully I can start contributing more to this site soon....it arrives tomorrow. Hopefully the condition will match the description.
