Hello All I think I spent most of the last week looking at all of the articles and reviews of the EM5 that I can find. I haven't actually seen one in the flesh but there is a local camera store that stocks them so I am going along tomorrow to have a look. What may tip the balance is the fact that at the moment there is an offer to claim free either a 45mm f/1.8 lens and battery or the grips and battery if you buy a new EM5. If I go ahead I think the lens and battery would be a good bet. What do you reckon? The camera comes with the 12-50 kit lens. Last year I sold my Nikon D70 and various lenses because I was fed up with the bulk of everything. I downsized dramatically and bought a Leica D Lux 5 which is a great little camera to carry around, I even take it with me when I go running sometimes. You can't do that with a bulky DSLR. But I do miss having a viewfinder and the involvement of using a SLR type camera. I am just a keen hobbyist , nothing serious. But when I came across this apparent little gem my mind started ticking over and I am enthused. I will be in touch again after I have seen the camera and made a decision. I have a feeling that I already know the outcome. Bye for now.
