Would you suggest buying the OMD EM-10 body only and then adding the pancake zoom (which I assume is the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 EZ.)

I am committed to being compact.

Thanks for your reply.

Here in Holland the EM-10 is sold as a kit with the 14-42EZ pancake zoom. That's probably cheaper than buying seperately. But otherwise: yes, buy the body only, you already have the lenses. You can decide on the pancake zoom later. You could even consider the pana pancake zoom 12-32 that is MAYBE a tad sharper. But the oly pancake will look better (beautiful combo) and in my experience you get the best Oly color with Oly lenses.

Anyway the sensor is worth it...shooting indoors at daytime no flash my EPL1 fell short of my dslr's, but not the EPL5...

Good luck!
