Re: EM 5, or EM 1? Worth moving too as I already have an EPL5?

It's done. Thank you for all your advice and for holding my hand as I wracked my brain with justifications!

Well, I will give the EPL-5 to my wife now. Will she be happy? We will see......!

This must be the close out deals to clear the stock and at least with this I get the silver and a couple of decent lenses.

Definately no K3 II now though!
Looks like the perfect solution then.

Sometimes you just have to be pragmatic and put your priciples to one side.

Regards.

Well it arrived! It is a really nice looking camera and feels good in the hand with or without the grip. I have just updated all the firmware for the camera and the lenses and so far am very happy with it. Happy I went with the silver too.

Unfortunately we are having a heatwave and everyone has been advised not to go out during the middle of the day.......... So can't take it outside and play!!

Got to learn the menus and I may for once have a cursory look at the manual......

Now, don't over do it, 'cause if all else fails then read the instructions.

Good to hear you've got your E-M5 now.

BTW, DPReview wrote up this user guide for the E-M5 which is useful, but you'll have to allow for the later firmware updates though. http://www.dpreview.com/articles/911...e-olympus-e-m5

The second thing is the lack of lens hoods which is rather annoying...... But, in sime ways a minor thing.

That's when you buy the JJC versions (off eBay) at a much cheaper price instead.

I acquired the same camera and grip a few weeks ago. I think you've made a fine choice.

I think so so far. Have a set of lens hoods on the way and should help ultimate performance but even without the files have cleaned up really nicely. I always shoot RAW and process in Lightroom and the results are very decent.
