Hi, So. A while ago I got frustrated with my ancient Point 'n' Shoot and decided to upgrade, and got a PEN PM2 / 14-42 IIR cheap. I have that kit lens and the Olympus 60mm 2.8 macro (neat score for $400aus) which I'm quite happy with so far - both are essentially nice enough to be far nicer gear than I am ever likely to actually need at this point. Down from that I have the 15mm/F8 bodycap lens which I'm finding to actually be pretty fun to use - certainly an interesting challenge to get anything useable at all out of it, and maybe better at teaching me how not to be so terrible at everything than the photography books I have for the $50 it cost Anyhow - I have put this together as a list of lens wants - 1. M.Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 R - used ex condition from keh or ebay or similar, ~$100us. Apparently utterly ordinary and fine as a lens, which ain't bad for a hundred bucks. Nothing I can see that is this 'not bad' in this price range. 2. Bower 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens - B&H.com, $249us (manual focus w/ aperture ring, from samples people posted on dpreview, it actually cleans up really nice as a plain ordinary wide angle once cropped and defished ? 3. Lumix 20 F1.7 G ASPH II - seems to regularly sell for below retail, panasonic.com with a deal through june/july are doing it now for $349us now. Oly 17mm is a bit pricey for me by comparison, at least, not convinced that it's almost twice as good for almost twice as much. 4. M.Zuiko Digital 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II - JBHifi, $400aus new after cashback. Apparently a fair bit better than ordinary and fine and given that the Oly 300/F4 is likely to be A Lot of money, this is about as good a thing as I am likely to want to buy. All up seems pretty reasonable to me as a list of things, cheap, though if anyone has any better suggestions or anywhere cheaper to get 'em I'd welcome them. as item 5. - I was looking at getting a VF-4 viewfinder for my PM2 - ordered one direct from olympus.com.au, but we'll see if I get it - price has glitched there to $69aus and no idea if they'll honor it Now - while I had this pretty much locked down as my plan of things to get for the rest of the year, a couple of really nice deals appeared locally at CameraPro.com.au - http://www.camerapro.com.au/eofy-cl...&manufacturer=olympus,panasonic&gan_data=true This complicates things somewhat because those are two nice cameras that I was looking at getting but put off because I didn't want to make a huge upfront investment in a body. So rather than like, $1100 or something equally silly, I can now get a usable new OM-D EM-5 body for $550aus after cashback, or a GX7 body for $687. Both of which do things my current camera doesn't do well (physical ergonomics for both, 60fps video for the GX7, 5 axis IBIS and weather sealing for the E-M5, bunch of other stuff). Assuming that I don't get a VF-4 for a glitched out price of $69aus, both of those look really damn tempting - both of them have decent viewfinders around the VF2/4ish kind of level, which I was looking at getting, so it's like getting the entire rest of the camera for $250/387 minus the VF-4 RRP. Which is pretty much 'one lens' kind of price range for a whole more capable body. So, what to do? I should point out that I am still pretty much at the "wow this cat/flower picture was almost entirely in focus" point and I'm not sure if adding a larger camera is really going to be a great help as far as that goes - to be honest there isn't actually much that annoys me yet about the PM2, it would be nice to have more buttons and controls I'm sure, but mainly I'd be interested in weather sealing/5 axis IBIS, and 60fps video/highres viewfinder/customisation niceties out of the GX7. Would it just be pointless wanking to get another camera body at this point? Has anyone else gone the same way (PM2 > EM-5/GX7) and found it was massively beneficial to them as a photographer - more than getting another lens for the PM2?
