Re: HELP: E-M5 + 60 macro or E-pl5 + 75 1.8


I had to say that I shoot street portraits and candids mainly, and the 60 macro gives me a reach of 120 mm equivalent, similar to my actual 85 nikon. Nd could of course use it for macro.

I doubt on the DOF, which I like to be thin.....

I´m comfortable from those 120 mm. onwards, thus the election.

Sure I´d prefer 75 , but have a (mentally) limited budget and could not choose    e-m5 + 75 that I think would be almost perfect.

Choices are E-M5 + 60 macro or E-pl5 + 75 1.8 now, or keep my nikon gear (more weight, more noticeable) and save for the "perfect" combination.

If money wasn´t an obstacle, I´ll probaly choose E-m5 + 45 +pana 35-100 for the flexibility of zoom.

So would e-pl5 handle well with the 75 ?
