    My new toy came in today and I'm loving the size and weight difference over my DSLR setup...

    Coming from Canon's menu system to Olympus is going very well and not all difficult. I have read about tight fitting lenses and though not real tight it does take more force to install the lens then my Canon's or my wife's PL5.

    So far I'm loving the E-M10 and soon it will be my only camera.

    Nice lens choices, the Sigma 30 is a my favorite M43 lens.

    Congrats! Both the wife and I sold off our Canon DSLR systems and got E-M1s. No regrets. :smile:

    If you get a chance take the same shot with the 30 as with the 20. I've owned both and I know they're different focal lengths but I'm always curious when looked at side by side (20 shot from closer of course) how they compare in sharpness; because they're both top notch!

    Congrats. And you already got some great lenses. Quite a head start ;)

    Since I got my Sigma 30mm a few weeks ago, it hasn't come off my EPM2.

    Thanks everyone, can't wait to get out and shoot with it..

    Looking at adding a Panasonic 14mm 2.5 to my bag and that should hold me for now. With my shooting style now I don't see me dumping the kind of money on glass as I did with my DSLR's.

    Maybe not the same shot, but both look very good. I took the pictures of the 20 & 30 with each other.

    That's an eclectinc selection of lenses, I hope the pancake 14-42 does a hood job for you.
    I know the Lumix 20 and Sigma 30 are both excellent.
    ...but where's the 40-150? :eek:

    I really like the pictures the Pancake 14-42 takes, but I love primes.

    The 40-150mm lives in my wife's bag with her E-PL5 and 14-42ed lens..
