Good buy. I still shoot with the 50-200 SWD and the both EC since switching to the M1 series. The 50-200 is so good that it keep me on the fence on getting that 100-400 dream about, and forget the 150-400 mega bucks.

So, what would you carry in the bag with the camera besides the 12-40mm PRO? The 50-200mm will be in a second bag in the car. I like the idea of promoting my Zuiko Digital 50mm from a special purpose legacy lens to a regular part of the kit, but it gets pretty big once you add on the adapter. And I don't know if it makes sense to carry the EC-14 or 20 around just to use with the 50mm. My standard in-the-bag-with-the-camera kit has been the Oly 17mm f1.8, the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4, and the Oly 12-50mm EZ. the latter will of course go into storage now that I'm getting the 12-40.

The 12-40 2.8 and the 45 1.8 are always in my bag and sometime with the FL-900R. Mounting on my E-M1 III has been the 25 1.2 lately because I started to discover its goodness; this brings me back to the days I zoomed with my feet from the OM-4T. The 50-200 2.8-3.5 goes with the EC-14 and the EC-20 when I go to the Galveston bay or the state parks. All of the above fits nicely in my LowerPro AW200 and that is the beauty of m43 systems. My other favorite lens, the 25 1.8 was given to my son along with my old Mark II.
