some oly / lens help
Jul 13, 2014

I'm disable, spinal cord injury.  really can't do  much walk a cuple hundred yards with help, losing my hands.  shake and trouble changing lenses.  have Fuji, like it no IBIS so losing too many shots.

the two zooms, wa and normal are very good and have IS. but  my primes 18, 27, 35 pancakes, 23 and 60 macro are no longer working for me.

Oly's 5 axis seems the best solution. OM5 OM1??..  but I can't figure the glass, seems 2 types of lenses, the older slow focus ones and the newer contrast. but which is which and how do you tell?could someone explain the lens issue.

I'd like a wa zoom a 18-55ish high quality bright normal zoom, a portrait and hopefully good macro 60mm or so.  all the fast focus types.

lens suggestions welcome

2 final questions  5 vs 1 ??  and can I use vanilla hot shoe flashes on them.

may just keep the Fuji and sell all the glass but think the coupe primes I "need" are making me think time to change.
