Thanks Ken. Fantastic info!!

I'd be careful with some of the false info being put forth here, especially the incorrect comparison of other format lenses with m43. Too much to get into here, but read this article to know how to compare different formats correctly.

Equivalence is useful if you have any interest in light (and as a photographer, you probably should): Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com)

Lots of bad info in that area on this forum.

Here's my take from someone who shoots both m43 and FF mirrorless (in my Case Canon).

The m43 setup you have a chance to buy is a good one. I have the 12-40 and 40-150 and they are good lenses generally, especially the 40-150. The 7-14 is generally well regarded as well (I have the Pl 8-18 instead).

If you can get that setup at a good price, (I'd say an absolute minimum of 30-40% less than new) then its probably a good deal and worth persuing. If its anywwhere near new prices then I'd think real hard about going for the Z system and also looking at Sony and Canon.

The truth is every manufacturer out there can come up with a sytem that meets your needs. I could come up with lots of good FF mirrorless alternatives that make a lot of sense for you if you don't intend to buy the setup you mentioned. If you have an opportunity to get good gear at a very good price then go for it. If not, I'd research more and ask questions on other forums to get a less biased viewpoint (or maybe just a viewpoint biased to something else but hey 2 differnet biased viewpoints are better than one).
