Just for fun if you had $5,000.00 to put into camera gear for semi pro work, such as weddings, concerts, studio portraits, fashion and seniors, which gear would you buy?

Don't know what SHG lenses you have. So lets not consider them at all for the moment.. Sell all the other stuff.

Buy an E-M1 ($1400) and the 12-40/2.8 ($700 while the rebate is on, $900 otherwise). If you prefer primes over zooms as I do, pick a wide, a normal, and a portrait tele (my choice at present is Panasonic 14/2.5 ($200, Summilux 25/1.4 ($550), Macro-Elmarit 45/2.8 ($700)). Add the HLD-7, and a couple spare batteries.

And go to work with about $2000 left in the bank.

I don't know what your concern is. Why not just sell off what you don't want, buy an E-M1 body, and keep going rather than switching systems and spending lots more money?
