Re: Using Olympus EPM2 with m.Zuiko 12-40/2.8 Lens

I currently have both of these camera bodies and the lens you note. I thought you might want to see how the setup looks like together (I have a VF-3, but not attached in this shot). In my mid-sized hands, this feels light still, not badly balanced or unstable once you bring your eye to the viewfinder area.

I'm planning to take photographs of my stepson's upcoming wedding but due to budget constraints I will not be able to purchase an EM1 (hopefully a future acquisition) and the m.Zuiko 12-40 PRO lens so I'm considering getting just the lens at this time. I do have an EPM2 but I'm concerned about the handling/ergonomics of the 12-40 on such a small body. Does anyone have experience with this set-up? I'm also considering purchasing the VF-4 viewfinder as I'm assuming bracing the camera to my face will improve the stability (plus I'd rather compose/focus using a viewfinder). Any suggestions and/or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
