Congrats! I like having both FF and m43, but can see the allure of sticking with m43. The EM5 appears to be a landmark camera. It has raised the bar to the point, with good glass, that it meets a wide range of photographic needs.

Well if I had cash, and EM5, I'd be tempted to go with one of the magnificent 7 lineups.

Plan 1: 12/2, 17/1.8, 25/1.4, 45/1.8, 75/1.8, and 150/2.8 plus a macro, flash, batt grip.

Or Plan 2: 7-14, 12-35, 35-100, 100-300, two bright primes, macro, flash, batt grip.

On plan 2, I'd skip the 100-300mm which isn't up to the standard of the 1-14mm or the 12-35mm; for the 35-100mm I haven't read enough to say something.

Plan 1 is the best looking one ! But would you take all those lenses with you in a bag on a single photo outing ? If not, how will you choose among all those lenses ? The more gear you have, the more difficult it will be to choose the right lenses before a photo outing, isn't it ?

That's a good point.  I'd have a big case/bag with all the gear, which isn't that big comparatively. Then have a smaller shoulder bag for when you go out. Each day you arm yourself according to your objectives. Think of Batman, before he goes out for a twirl around Gotham City
