I shoot mostly with the EM5 these days

The Canon these days is the 5dMkIII which was a substantial upgrade from the mkII.  The E5 is a great camera!  But if I'm going to grab a kit that large I grab the 5dmkIII.

I'm using the em5 with the 12, 25 (Panasonic f1.4) and 45 primes - it does a awesome job!

On the Canon side I added the 17-40 and the new 100 macro.

My kit's on both sides of the fence keep growing

But, like tomorrow where I'll be at an 'quiet sports' outdoor show, the EM5 will be the camera of choice with the 25 f1.4 with 12 in the pocket.  I don't like going to events like this with the Canon for two reasons, people react to the camera or think your some type of official photographer, and the em5 is much smaller and lighter.  The large advantage the E5 had over the Canon kit lessoned somewhat with the MkIII as the MkIII has the focusing speed and accuracy like my older 1ds series of bodies and like the E5.  Also the light metering and color are much improved on the newer Canon.  Still, I get better IQ without pp out of the Olympus cameras.

Here's an E5 shot with the 14-35:

From my trip to Greece back in 2010 a few months after I got the E5.
