From G9 to E-M5 III ?
6

Hey all, I have been away from the forums doing life and shooting when able. About a year ago I decided to switch from my trusty E-M10 II to the Panasonic G9. What I've found is I don't "click" well with the G9. I really miss the smaller E-M10 body I just didn't like the AF on that camera, especially for people. I also miss the composite modes on from Olympus. I was hoping the 5.3 fixes that, and is weather sealed.

I feel kind of dumb switching from the flagship G9 to the E-M5 III but I think the smaller size would suit me better. Most of my lenses are smaller anyway. They have a promotion to get the grip free with the 14-150 lens. I already have the Pana 12-35 and 35-100 2.8's I was planning to keep and use with the Olympus.

I'm a little disappointed they cheapened the 5.3 as compared to the 5.2 (lesser build, smaller battery) but I'd be interested in thoughts on making a switch like this.

Greg.
