    With over 40 years with Canon cameras and lenses, this was not a decsion taken lightly. I have bad back problems ans had to go smaller. The 60D and 15-85 plus some other lense went last winter. Then I bought a G1X which is a wonderful travel camera and took great picture in Bali. I just wanted more capabilities from a similar sized camera.

    I bought a 40-150 last week when Olympus was selling them for $99 off. Olympus had the deal going where if you buy the body and 12-50 it goes for $1,199, which saves $100. Plus I saved another $300 getting the 17 1.8 and the 45 1.8.

    I think I am well covered for the first year or so for lenses.

    Welcome. Hope you love your E-M5 as much as I do. My other camera is a 5D MkII which I can't yet bring myself to sell. But I have not touched it since I picked up the Oly. The lens line up you have should certainly give you a good start. Look forward to seeing some of your shots posted.
