Re: ORIGINAL EM5 With 12-50mm kit lens

Sounds high for the combo, but they were US$1,400 new, for context.

The pair is weather-sealed, the camera has very good IQ and a few quirks that were eliminated in newer models. The lens is clever, with a power zoom option and a macro setting, but I found it too slow at 50mm (f:6.3) to be an adequate everyday standard zoom. Plus it's a bit long for easy stowing.

It also came with a small pop-on flash and a complete kit should include that.

Good luck,
