Great camera but hard to keep a good seal for underwater. Probably needs a case too.
Good thus far. Great customisation and low light performance.
Olympus PEN E-PM2
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II R
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ
Silver. It's very good, like a mini E-M5. Offers a decent amount of manual control too, much more than I hoped for.
Silver. Not bad for a plastic kit lens... pretty sharp. The lock mechanism for stowing the zoom is annoying.
Good sharpness from 12-35, not so good at the long end. Macro is excellent, Lfn button is useful, and the sealing works well.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 Pro
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm F2.8 Macro
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8
Excellent, and worth every penny. Super sharp wide open, but flawless from F2.8. Occasional chatter and some fringing wide open are the only negatives.
Panasonic Lumix G 14mm F2.5 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G 25mm F1.7 ASPH
Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT / Rokinon 7.5mm F3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT
For making yer camera pocketable.
Affordable nifty fifty. Lightweight and decent IQ.
Beautiful rectangular fisheye. Stop down a bit (F5.6 is good) and set IBIS to 8mm.
Tokina Reflex 300mm F6.3 MF Macro
Basically a toy lens with better IQ. I like it.

$1250 at B and H, $1100 at 58mm filter. Helps to get an ND4 filter for daylight shooting.

Fast prime at a length i rarely shoot at. $600 on Amazon, but sometimes $500 from Adorama. Fotodiox 46mm hood is supposedly a good option.

Kodak DC240
Fantastic camera for its day, with super long battery life, proper A and S modes, and exposure comp button. Good low light performance with no flash up to 1600 ISO. A little bit shaky and no IS so use the 2 second timer. Lens is F2.8 3x zoom, 36-108mm equivalent. Default behaviour is S-AF plus AEL on half press. Has a great flash bracketing preset. Bad fringing wide open.
