RE: E-30....
In reply to Susan G, Jan 21, 2013

Susan:

I wanted to bring the E-30 (after all, it's a bit lighter than the heavier E-3), but with the weather promising to be drizzly or even light rain, I didn't want to chance it since the E-30 isn't weatherproof.  But I really love the E-30 (and it has a 12-60 on it also).

I held off getting the OM-D (don't know why) - but opted instead to get the E-PL5 (which I've now come to really enjoy).  As I mentioned, I was not considering getting another regular 4/3 body if they ever released one again (which I'm kind of doubting that they will now - but I could be wrong), but I've come to the conclusion that if they do eventualy release an E-7 (provided it's 16 MP's - 'cause I'm tired of 10 and 12 MP cameras), then I'll make sure to somehow get that one.  The weight can be an issue - that's for sure - especially if you're holding the camera for 5 - 8 hours, but luckily I'm still lifting weights quite regularly, so that kind of helps in this regard.
