    Hi all!

    I've just taken an impulse plunge and purchased an Olympus OM-D with 12-50 kit lens which should be arriving at my doorstep any day now.

    I noticed that I've been keeping my dslrs at home due to its size and wanted a more compact solution that I can take out with me everyday.

    I have an OM-1n and always loved the way it looks and I still taking that with me every once in a while. So the Silver OM-D was the natural choice =)

    I don't want to spend too much money on my om-d kit as I already spent quite a bit on my Canon kit collection. So I just decided to pull the trigger on some cheap primes (samyang 7.5mm for $243, Sigma 19, 30 combo from BH for $199.99). I'm most likely going to keep the kit lens as it rains quite often where I am and weather resistance is a big plus for me.

    For the time being I feel this m4/3 kit will serve me well for everyday uses and any shortcomings from the om-d can be compensated by my 5Diii (AF, low light etc.) =)

    can't wait to get my hands on it and contribute more on this forum!
    Any suggestions/ tips with regards to om-d or m43 is greatly appreciated as I'm quite new to m43

    Welcome aboard! As for suggestions, you might want to consider the 20mm f1.7 - it is extremely sharp, excellent in low light and selling for a bargain price now that the new 17mm has been released.
