I did the same with the S1, but I'm now selling my m43 kit to fund lenses for the S1. After seeing the images from the S I found myself reluctant to use the m43 other than for long telephoto reach.

For travel I just tend to take my Fuji X100T.

Enjoy the new camera.


I hear you. I kept some m43 gear when I got my S5. After about 2 months with the S5 I have not touched the m43 gear at all, so recently sold the rest of it and got the Sigma 100-400. Love this camera!

Probably something similar will happen to me. The S5 is so good it changes everything, and this is coming from someone who tried Sony FF with excellent glass. I was unimpressed and stayed with m43.
