Mr Big and Mr Little

Is that a Cannon M39 mount 50mm f/1.4?

No but it is the Canon S M39 mount 50mm f1.2 - which is physically a bit larger than the f1.4 - but the f1.4 is a pretty good lens in its own right.

The other lens is a Sigma 50-100/1.8 in EF mount adapted to M4/3.  If I was feeling particularly stupid I could mount this on the GM5 camera body.

This really makes my point - people tend to think solely in terms of exchanging lenses - but a good system allows users to exchange camera bodies if it suits the situation better.

For example the GM5 + Canon 501.2 makes a pleasant compact camera to carry around and of course it will fit on the G9 as well - but on the G9 the combination is already a quite large camera - but nobody would consider that as being stupid ....

I have been looking for one of those for years.
