Re: New Body or Lens

I don't understand using a long telephoto on a camera without a viewfinder. And someone mentioned a 75-300 - trying to keep that steady while holding the camera away from your body? GX 85 has by all reports a poor viewfinder.

I would say get a E-M1.2 now on sale for $1199 minus the trade credit Olympus will give you on the E-PL5. That will give you 20mp (better IQ than the 16),  continuous auto focus and a good viewfinder. Then pick up the 40-150/3.5-5.6. Excellent lens and very inexpensive. Comes is right around your budget.
