    Hi, i'm new here :D

    Since many years I've been using a Canon DSLR , but I realised that I'm tired to carry around all that weight so I sold it and bought an E-PM1, it's great to put the camera in the jacket pocket when I'm not using it.

    I now that it is a low range camera, and it has problems with IBIS (I've it turned off all the time) but it gives me the choice to try the m43 system before spending a lot of money in a high end camera or lenses. I have got used to the LCD screen instead the viewfinder for taking photos very quick so I don't need to buy one. I think that I will buy a E-PL5 in a few months when price drops

    I've ordered a 14mm f2.5 and I want to buy the O45 fm1.8 and another prime in the middle of that two, but both PL20 and PL25 doesn't convince me (one is slow and the other is too big) I hope that Olympus makes a 25mm f1.8 pancake, that would be great

    Thanks in advantage

    Hi! Enjoy your new gear! My two cent about the 25 and 20. I just sold the 25 and bought the pana 20. I had my doubts about the af performance of it but I must say that im very happy with it, not that slow as I first thought. And I dont miss the pl25 that much either... (I sold it to fund my second camera body) the size of the 20 is great and the fov is much better for me. (my only lens for my m43 system.)

    I hope it will be the same thing for me, I've ordered a P20 at a good price

    I think that it will be glued to my camera most of the time if AF is not disappointing

    I guess we have the same reason for grabbing the E-PM1

    Welcome! I had the 20mm and was very happy with it. For me, it was too close to the 14 so I traded it after buying a 25mm. Both are fine lenses.
