    I've been using an E620 for the last few years. Mostly liked it but have been looking at alternatives. Till the E-M5 none of the m43 cameras said buy me. But I knew I wanted smaller/lighter rather than bigger/heavier. I just thought about how I used cameras and sometimes find the E620 bigger than I really wanted to deal with. I had hoped the E-M5 had solved the issues of focusing with my extant 43 lenses, especially the 12-60 which I love, but... But it offers virtually everything else I was looking for. So a few weeks ago I ordered the E-M5 kit with 12-50, the PL-25, the Oly 45 f1.8, the 40-150, and the mmf-3. I know the equipment is better than me but hope I can grow with it. I've been mostly a lurker here but hope to participate a bit more in the future.
