    I know what you mean. I am considering getting an em1 mkii, probably used from BH, as a resolution and DR upgrade from my e5, but mainly because of the body size for travelling. I also like the idea of the sensor shift for landscapes.
    My quandary is do I trade in all of my 4/3 gear and start afresh, or just get the adapter and keep the lenses I have? As I have the 14-54 mkii there doesn't seem to be any need to get the mf 12-40 as the size/weight difference is minimal, and I don't tend to shoot at large apertures. But the 7-14 and 50-200 are quite bulky beasts, however I also have the 2x teleconverter which would give additional flexibility on the long end.

    The 50-200 is great on the EM-1 Mk II. I assume the 7-14 is as well.

    As the 4/3 lenses are larger than their m4/3 counterparts I assume they gather more light, and if this is true would it result in a higher DR or more resolving power?
    For example I was wondering if you would see a difference between the 14-35 f/2 and the mf 12-40?

    the only forum where I still frequent is Fredmiranda.com. I use to participate, and was a moderator at Photocamel.com a long while back, but it has gotten to where it is pretty much on life support. It's a bit alarming how forums seem to be dying. Are forums pase, for the young ADD crowd? Too many words to comprehend and deal with?

    I think that people are using Facebook instead of forums, nowadays. This is a real shame because FB does NOT work as a forum replacement. Even using its "groups," you cannot easily find old topics or have a topic receive new entries and stay isolated as a topic for later viewing. Everything just seems to get melded into the FB timeline, even within a group.


    So FB serves a different purpose (it seems to be trying to imitate a conversation, as far as I can determine), and is not very useful as a forum, IMHO. But that does seem to be the trend.

    So. I had to bite on a weather-sealed em5 ii kit. I will be hunting and hoping to find many of you friends on a m43 forum in the future! I learned so much here back in the good old days. This is probably my last post. Thanks to Tony and Edmund and all who kept this site so awesome! ��
