    Long story short, I got a G5 on Amazon last week during lightning which I'm now returning because it irks me for only one reason. Setting AF point is 2 steps and not really intuitive without the LCD and with the lcd on my nose keeps hitting it. Otherwise it's a great camera Fast to Focus and superb IQ

    I have been out of M4/3 for a while since the E-P2 and gave up on it due to shadow noise in high ISO which is so much better now. Have an OM-D & 17mm 1.8 coming tomorrow so can't wait to get to it...

    These are first couple of shots with both lenses... Just got the 25mm yesterday and WOW.. Fast to focus and the build is amazing.

    Nice shots and I agree. A great combo.

    And next you can bust out with the triple whammy. 17-25-45. :biggrin:

    Nice Shots and great Combo.

    For now I will keep my "other" trio 14/20/45 :)

    I haven't played with the 14 yet but I remember hating the AF & focus by wire on the 20 with both the GF1 & EP2. Great lens though...

    So sadly the 17mm won't be here until Monday, but the Fedex guy just made me very happy!!

    Wow, that looks great!

    I have the PL25 that I use on my E-PL2, but I hope to upgrade to the OMD one day.

    You're almost there. ;-) My take everywhere kit exists of two EM5 bodies, and 12,17,25 and 45 lenses. It all fits in a cheap Lowepro Exchange Messenger bag, which I use inside (or alongside) a much larger Rickshaw Commute 2.0 so I can carry both work and photorelated stuff.

    Mine, the Lumix 14/Lumix 20/and soon a black M.Zuiko 45. I planned a 20/45 combo but I was able to buy a mint 14 for $152.

    Nice! I've just purchased a similar kit this year for my travels in the summer to Taiwan and Hong Kong! But I have the 12mm f2 instead of the 17!

    Debating whether to pick up the 40-150 for £150 considering that I'll be also hitting the zoo... As well as a tiny tabletop tripod... Will see though... Savings diminishing... Wish I could afford a 75mm f1.8, as well as the FL600R!

    Lovely shots - I have both the 25 and 45 and they are wonderful lenses. The 25 has a quality that I can't quite put my finger on, it's a superb piece of glass and quite a good price I think, given how good it is.
