Re: Need some M4/3 advice

$600 is pretty challenging

About the cheapest good combo I can think of is a used E-M1 (original version) plus a 100-300 lens. Thats about $675 at KEH.

Slightly cheaper than the Oly 100-300, you night also think of a 4/3  50-200SWD. This will force the E-M1 to use phase detect autofocus, and its also a reasonably fast lens. You will need a 43-M43 adapter, even a third party adapter should serve. This is the combo I used for some years.

If you can afford it, throw in a 43 EC-20 2X teleconverter.
