Hello everybody, I am a bit on crossroads on what my next purchase is going to be. I currently own an Olympus EP-2. I bought it about two years ago and I have never regretted accidently stumbling on buying it 'new' for 250 euros including the 17mm pancake lens. I love how people think it is 1960s camera which you put filmrolls in, and even more how surprised people are about the quality of the pictures which roll out of this camera. I currently own the following lenses: Olympus 17mm pancake F2.8, Olympus 14-42mm kit lens (second hand, the old model), and the Olympus 45mm F1.8. Now during daylight, all is well. I generally take the 17mm pancake with me. I know its not the best lens around, but for me it does its job perfectly. Ofcourse when I do not need to carry light (or covert when I am in a less safe area and need to hide my camera under behind my jacket) I take the kit zoom instead. However, I also take alot of pictures during parties during night. The light situations are very variable. What I do not like however is a flash. It makes me look like a ghost, and other people as well . I just refuse to buy one for my camera. So my EP-2 + F2.8 17mm pancake just barely cope with the task. I get quite some good pictures, but 75% is ruined. I thought, lets buy the 45mm F1.8 because its lower aperature. However it is too cramped for me. It is great for taking pictures at the bar of like 2-3 persons, but when a group whats to get on I have to walk like half the room away from the group, which is not always possible. Please note that I am not a professional and just shoot for fun at parties at (for example) my student association in exchange for some beers. Now I am wondering what would be better: Get an Olympus E-M5 with my current lens setup or an 17mm F1.8 for my E-P2. Is the Olympus E-M5, with its increased 'high-iso sensitivity' able to cope with my F2.8 pancake in low-light situations? Or would buying the 17mm f1.8 be a better idea for my situation? Would the new Olympus cameras provide a noticable improvement in daylight situations over my EP-2, or would the new f1.7 actually provide a larger improvement over my kit-lens assortment?
