I was bitten by the Oly bug

I’ve owned several PL1s, the P3 and P5, PM1 and PM2, and an M10 and M5II.

For duplication of what your old Nikon film camera could do, it’s impossible to beat the photographs of a PL1 in sunlit conditions, and in JPEG. Look at my gallery.

That said, the newer the Olympus the better IBIS it has and better high ISO performance.

A used OMD M5 would be great and a used OMD M5II even better.

An OMD M10 has three axis IBIS and the M10 II and M10III have five axis IBIS. But they live their lives almost an OMD M5 and never quite being one.

The P5 has the same five axis IBIS as the M5 and yet the M5 II IBIS is other worldly. Look at my gallery for a six second exposure. And the camera is waterproof, and so recent it has all the goodies and gizmos you don’t need but are nice to have,,,,,AND IS CURRENTLY UPDATED EVERY TIME OLY ISSUES AN UPDATE.

All in all, buy a pair of M5 II cameras and have fun.
