May I ask what your kit is with the OM-D and if you have anything you don't like regarding it? I'm currently using a Canon 300D (bought in 2004) and I'm looking to jump ship into the m4/3 waters

I made the same jump at the end of April and have really been enjoying the E-M5, since. I'd pretty much quit carring the 300D around, most of the time, but the E-M5 goes practically everywhere with me.

I bought it with the kit lens and have added an Olympus 45mm f/1.8, Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 and Olympus 40-150mm.

I like all of the lenses, really - the kit lens and 40-150mm make a great daytime walk around pair. The 20mm is compact and good for low light, but a bit on the slower side when autofocusing. The 45mm is also fast and takes some beautiful pictures. I'm done buying lenses for 2012, but I will probably trade in the 20mm Pany for the new 17mm Oly early next year and see what else I'd like to add to fill out the gaps.
