Just got the Pen F (the sale got me!) first time walking around with it, I dig the Mono mode.

I used the 25mm f1.2 for both. I am overthinking the purchase of a 14mm 2.5 or 17mm 1.8 to have a small stealthy kit... but I have that 25 1.2 and it is so nice. Not sure if I'll use the other lenses.

that is quite the lens you got there...i wouldn't bother buying the other lens you mentioned and just solidify that 25 1.2 there. beautiful lens

I thought the BW mode would be a dumb gimmick... It is absolutely great.

I played with the mono mode when I got my Pen, but I never use it in anger. I can fairly easily recreate its effects using presets in LR from the raw. It can come in useful when composing to view the shot in mono, but I rarely do that either. I love the camera, but not for its JPEG capabilities. This is from raw:

I have an EM10ii - is there a setting on it that closely mimics the monochrome setting on the Pen F? I've tried a few variations but it would be helpful if someone had both bodies and could lend their experience on this. Thanks.
