Re: I have bad news.. or not
In reply to MercurySoft1, Apr 26, 2014

Without any doubt I would go for OM-D  E-M1 and 12-40 duo. I was an early adoptee of E-M5/12-50 in April 2012 and then went for E-M1/12-40 in Oct 2013 for it's better compatibility with 4/3 lenses.

I still have the same E-5 set-up as you, but I keep it strictly as a backup and/or experimentation.

E=M1 is a handling delight and the best way would be for you to visit your local camera store and compare the 2 for sheer size and weight alone. I am positive you will be sold instantly.

I would get an adapter immediately so you can use your 50mm (or other 4/3 lenses). Since Micro 4/3 F2.8 40-150mm is coming in the fall I would keep the existing 50-200mm till then. Both 14-54 & 50-200 are usable, but NOT the same as with E-5.

My 2.5 cents
