I am not a mirror less user yet . . . having spent a minor fortune on my DSLR bodies and lenses. Nevertheless I have been considering adding one body from these to my gear and then see how it goes for some time. The Olympus OMD EM5 and all one read about it seemed exciting but I still waited for more lenses to be launched. Now with the EM-1 followed by this lens I am convinced the time has come to buy . . .
I intend to start carrying a mirror less body and a lens along with my regular kit to see if I can reduce my overall weight (I am almost 65 and not the strongest man on the planet). To buy both the 12-40 and the 40-150 (plus the TC) seems like a very good idea. I can think of many situations where I would like to use a combination of my dslr gear with the mirror less body and lens combo. Also for just a walk around (on-me-all-the-time) kind of usage it might turn out a better option and increase the use-by-date of my back :)
We need an update with so much new gear . . .

We need an update - particularly regarding the gear.
