Hello folks, i am new to the forums and id like to get some help regarding some purchases id like to make in the very near future. The background: I have not been part of the world of photography for long but it has quickly become one of my great passions after music. For almost two years ive been lugging around a Nikon d5100 with a 18-55mm f3.5-5.6, a 55-300mm f4, and a 35mm f1.8 and have been, for the most part, very happy with it. Since i am always doing weekend activities with friends i love to take the opportunity to take pictures of almost every event i attend. That being said, earlier this summer i felt that i needed something lighter and more compact for my everyday street shooting or for the random occasion that presents itself and provides a great opportunity to get a nice picture. Despite the costs i invested in a Nikon 1 v2 and got a 18.5mm f1.8 lens to complement the kit lens. It has proven to be a fun little camera that leaves the house with me almost daily. However, despite some good pictures, i feel that the camera is not up to the task for my needs. Manual focusing is pointless on it, its pretty much useless in anything but sunny days, and quite frankly i dont get the feeling Nikon is serious about this system. After some serious research for the past 3 months i was introduced to the world of m43. I must say, i wished i knew about this back when i started taking photography seriously. While it seems most people want a run at a FF camera i feel like the best camera is the one i actually take with me. Despite the fact that my d5100 takes much better pictures than the smaller v2, it simply doesnt leave the house as often as it used to. It has been relegated mostly to coming out only when i have made plans to shoot something specific. With that in mind i sold all of my gear and i'm currently in the market for an OM1 with the 12-40mm f2.8 lens and a second smaller body m43. I find the OM ideal because living in miami, fl = plenty of rain. Not only that, it essentially has all the features i can ever ask for, minus the size. That camera would be used for all of my planned shoots as well as all of the events me and my friends attend (parties, beach days, bbqs, festivals etc.). The other camera would be mostly for street shooting and would remain in my backpack all the time with either the Oly 17mm f1.7 or a Pan 20mm f1.7 pancake. I also travel regularly so both would be coming with me. So i guess the question is, what would you recommend as a second body? Ive looked extensively at the offering from both companies. The EP5 seems great, but im not sure its worth the price considering id have an OM1. The EPL5 seems quite tempting as does the GX7. The GM1 seems too small since it has no grip imo. Basically i am asking which would you prefer as a second body to the OM1: the EP5, EPL5 or the GX7? If you have other suggestions please feel free to let me know. My apologies for the WOT.
