Wait for Oly 300mm or 40-150mm pro models or go with a super bridge?
5 months ago

I set out to wait for the new Oly pro lenses to come out, but the super bridge cameras from Panasonic or Sony or even Pentax are intriguing to achieve a longer range while keeping my 12-40mm attached to my EM-1. In other words, to use two cameras, with the main still my EM-1, while sporting extra reach and better video potential in the other. What about this strategy which will cost less than I suppose either pro lense will cost? What say you?
