may get the OM-D M5 ...
Sep 25, 2013

I was planning to get the Oly OM-D M5 camera. I thought about the M1 and feel it is not quite worth the extra $. I wonder if I am cutting corners by going with M5. What I like is the M5 is can be pocketed with a pancake lens.

I have the 14-54 mm original lens not IIk. After looking at the $ on this range for equivalent quality

I would have a hard time justifying. I can try it out with the $100- $150 adaptor and see

the performance.

I saw a Zuiko 12-40mm pro lens for $999. Lots of $. that would take a big leap. Maybe there is an alternative. Just looking to cover the 12mm to 45mm range or 24mm to 90mm equivalent

Lots of questions because I am looking to make a buying decision
