Something you see rarely other than on this forum are people saying that they are about to buy a new camera, the EM-5 and looking for advice on 3,4,5, or even 6 lenses that they should buy with it. Am I alone in thinking that the sensible thing to do when buying a new camera is buy a camera and a lens or lenses that satisfy your basic requirements and then see if you like it. When you have confirmed the love affair with the camera, at that point, it’s time to add to your collection.

I fail to see the point of raining on others parade. Several of the posts that you refer to have come from experienced DSLR users who are asking for advice about lenses that provide them with results that are comparable to what they get with their DSLR lenses.

My lens buying "frenzy" started after I purchased a GH2. I now have owned an E-M5 for 6 months without buying any new lenses, but I would have been one of those who you feel the need to disparage if the E-M5 had come along before the GH2.
