I noted that you did not need 1.4 or 1.2 apertures, why would you state that. now you can bump up the iso if you do not get enough light.

The problem with the expensive lenses I mentioned is they are really expensive new and used for one of the ones I mentioned. You are dealing with lots of folks around.

I'm not understanding your reply.

Most of my experience with these kinds of events is in FF land - and was shooting with the equivalent of that. I have only started to build the MFT kit, starting with the 75mm f/1.8, but the f/1.2 is next on my list. In truth, I'm not shooting that kind of stuff any more, so it's less pertinent to me personally.

That said, I have researched this heavily and most in MFT land are doing it with the widest primes they can afford, at the focal lengths they need.

Since you write from "Tim Reidy Productions" I assume this is for business. I don't understand why you wouldn't invest in the best, knowing: It is a write off - it's a cry once, have the best for years, and it will give you the best chance of getting strong images.

At the end of the day - it's your business. Back when I was providing imaging and tech support for people there were plenty running businesses using consumer grade gear and almost every time - if they had chosen better up front, most of what they were hiring me to address would not have been an issue.

I’m a working photographer specialising in concert and stage photography as you can see from my web site  After many years working with FF gear, I finally switched to MFT and never looked back. I find that MFT suits much better my needs especially due to the fact that I need a wide DOF which blows the FF advantage away, and most of the Olympus lenses are excellent. As far as lens speed, f:2.8 is fast enough for the average concert hall so I have enough margin and I really don’t need a 1.2 lens.

so I am very happy about my gear choice and by no mean would consider the EM1III as consumer grade gear because at the end of the day, what you have is not important. The importance is what you do with it.
