I really did. And I tried, I really did. But in the end, I just cannot. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a great little camera, but it just doesn't work for my purposes. I need to have fast zooms for my shooting style. That left me with the Panasonic zooms. The 12-35 and the 35-100 works phenomenally well on the OMD. But I purchased the 7-14 and the purple blobs were horrible. I also feel the need to have one fast prime in the bag and was really impressed with the 25 f/1.4. It chattered (rattlesnaked) like crazy. These killed the OMD for me. I purchased the Panasonic GH3 and the problems are gone. It is indeed a larger camera and does not have IBIS, but the power IS seems to work just as well. The chattering is gone as are the purple blobs. I am much, much happier. The 100-300 still sucks, but I can live with that, at least for now. I don't shoot at that focal length very often. Now to get out and shoot again. Thanks to all those who gave positive input into the threads I had started on these issues.
