Yes you don't need to invest in fast glass. I still do some birding with my Bronica 6x6 and Fuji 6x9. Not great BIF cameras, neither is the EM-5. Skill is important as you suggest, however some forms of photography like many things benefit from the proper tools. Like I said, you can get some great shots with the EM-5.

The Panny version (which he no doubt has since he shoots the G5) is f/5.6 ... I agree that the Oly lens is hopeless ... but the Panny lens is a bit better ... still, it is the contrast detect AF that makes it hopeless as light intensity drops ...

Not saying people can't pull a few out, but giant killer it's not.

And no one has said it is. As Trevor suggested ... it is the equivalent of going out go-karting ... a little fun and nothing too serious ...

Now this is the attitude that gets me fired up.

It's entirely possible to be quite serious about BiF, but not invest in expensive glass. There's several reasons for that, either economical, or the bulk of fast glass, or just the boring realisation that the benefits of fast glass are not worth it if you aren't needing it for professional reasons.

Skill in the field is more important than the camera used. I find the assessment of a person's level of commitment, based on their choice of camera, to be entirely unjustified.
