I've had my E-pl1 for about 2.5 years now. I've also picked up the 40-150mm, a legacy 50mm, a flash and a bag. One day I"ll upgrade to the E-M5, when the price is right in a year or 2. I'm proud of myself for not getting wrapped up in the GAS part of this hobby, which seems extremely easy to do. I definitely have my moments when I think " I need a 70-300mm" or "I need a view finder". But those feelings quickly pass. For the most part I know that anything lacking in my photos is my fault, not my gears. Anyone else out there with a small amount of gear but big passion for the hobby? How long have you been doing it? Why no GAS? Money? Would your partner kill you? LOL.
