The e-M5 II

I had the e-M5 II, sold it and regret it.  Wish I had it back.  I loved its fit and feel in my hand.  I used it with battery grip and 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens.  I had the 12-100mm f/4, sold it and I do not regret that sale.  It made the camera just too front heavy.

In any case, AVOID the E-M5 III.  It has a serious design flaw, weak bottom is tearing out the tripod mount, many reports on DPR and other places.  And you don't have to be using a tripod for this to happen; some are reporting simply a carry strap attached to the tripod socket is tearing it out.

I have no experience with Fuji.
