Re: Thinking of the E-M5 (from Pentax DSLR)


I cannot comment on E-M5 (yet), but I also have Pentax K-7 and never was completely satisfied with it, particularly AF. I have several Pentax lenses - FA35, FA50, both WR zooms, and couple of Russian manual primes.
A week ago I handled and tested E-M5 in B&H and loved it very much.

The same day when Pentax increased the price of the lenses in US, I bought da15 and da18-135 on Amazon at old price. After the testing, I already returned da15, 18-135 will be the next one. I'm going to sell both FA lenses and buy E-M5 with 12-50 for start.
Btw, your underwater pictures are amazing.

I like snorkeling and take underwater photos, too, I have Panasonic TS3, and K-7 also often stays in hotel safe when I'm on vacation.
For E-M5 I'm thinking to buy underwater case and snorkel with it.
