I just found a E1 Mk1 with grip and five OEM batteries for $500 on eBay. Bought! Now onto lenses as I sell more of my Canon gear... thanks to everyone!

Well I sold all the Canon gear and have a bunch of gear coming my way... I am down to the last purchase to complete the kit... one more lens... It needs to be Portrait based lens, but I don't have the bucks to get the 45mm Pro... I do have enough to get either the Olympus 12-40 or the Panasonic 12-35...

Here's what I have coming (some of it I already received)

two OM-d EM-1 mk I and a E-P3

14-150 mk II, Oly 12 f2, Oly 17 f1.8, Pan 50 f1.7, Sigma 60 f2.8

I want to round out the kit with either a prime portrait (Oly 45 f1.8, or Pan 42.5 f1.7 or Oly 75 f1.8)

OR a mid range zoom like the Pan 12-60, 12-35 or Oly 12-40...

And yes I am having fun!


Did you find out how many shutter clicks your EM1 has.


Lawrence the first body has 2,300 and the second body which was bought for backup and I got for $250 has 72,000.  And I finalized my lens selection with a Oly 45 f1.8 and a Pan 14-45 zoom.  I know I have some overlaps in focal lengths but I am ok with that.
