Re: 12-40 with E-M1 or without?

I actually considered also getting the E-M1.

Bundled, there is quite a price difference with getting lens and camera separate.

But I am confident that the 12-40 will be a more useful upgrade for me than the E-M1, so I decided to sit on the largest bulk of my budget.

The E-M5 is still plenty of camera, and I actually prefer its customizability and look over that of the E-M1: although I do not often detach the first part of the grip, it is nice to have that option and make the camera quite small (with a prime like the 20mm).
