Hi, I'm new in this forum.

My first Olympus camera was EM10-III which I bought for 460 USD in Singapore this year. It comes with 1 kit lens, Olympus 45mm f1.8 and additional battery.

Moving forward I sold it and gotten 2 Pen-F because I love rangefinder camera.

That should keep you going for a while. :)
Don't mean to be pedantic....but an EM10-III is another M43 camera....not APSC
Hi there, previously I was using Sony A6400 with Sigma trios. Then my GAS kicked in upon seeing bargain for EM10-III with free 45mm f1.8 lens. Totally loving the IBIS and small lens, did research on M43 rangefinder with viewfinder. Chosen Pen-F over GX9 because of the retro look and feel!

The compact lenses and bodies are what differentiates M4/3, it was the OG mirrorless system and none of the other ones have managed to keep the same quality/size ratio with the glass. Sony APS-C is of course very good but the lenses just don't stay as small.

Hi. That’s some lovely gear you have.
I’m very jealous. 😎

Strongly agreed. As long I'm satisfied with IQ, the total smaller size and lighter weight are very welcome!

Wow, I've been a Micro 4/3 user since 2019, but you already have twice as many bodies and ten times as many lenses as I have.

Welcome from another Pen-F user! :Welcome:
That is a very nice kit with a lot of those lenses handling very nicely on the F, especially the 17/45/75 f1.8 primes, with the 75mm more or less being my favourite, although the 17 1.8 is very close second.

If you like to read a bit more avout the possibilities with the Color Profiles, I recommend checking out this thread:

GarethB's Kodachrome 25 inspired profile is quite popular, also fellow mu-43 user BushmanOrig has a dedicated blog where he shares his own profiles and more knowledge about the camera:

Thank you for sharing! Will take a look at them when I'm free 😊. My favorite small prime would be 45mm f1.8 as my initial purpose is to capture memories especially people around me and all the good foods. But nowadays I'm bringing my 45mm f1.2 more because I've invested in it 🤣
