I picked up a 5Dc last month and have a Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 attached to it. They've dropped in price since the appearance of the 6D and 5Diii. It's a nice camera, but it has confirmed that I have no real need for 135mm format. I've considered picking up the Rokinon 24mm, and 35mm primes just to have the fast wides that μ43 is currently missing. But I haven't yet simply because I can't justify it much. They'd only because for narrow DOF, not for low light.

I can't shoot the 58mm below 1/50th, but I can shoot the 25mm at 1/6th. That negates any high ISO advantage 35mm has (though the 5Dc doesn't have any of that to begin with against the E-M5 anyway...).

And narrow DOF wide angle is a pretty small niche anyway.

I'll stick with the E-M5 as my main camera. And I'll be happy for that for other reasons when I'm on 80km hikes this coming summer.

I've also found that a well-exposed E-M5 image(and thus doesn't require heavy PP) with a quality lens attached to it can be up-scaled to 32MP and still look absolutely superb.
