I have been copying the same way for nearly 2 years. Never had this issue, and it is happening only on this forum. Thanks for your help! I'll try.

Those pictures of the E-M1 have changed my mind a bit from when I first saw that leaked video. I'm getting ready to sell off a major portion of my gear and settle on m4/3 for traveling. I love the IQ I get out of the Fuji stuff, but the cameras are just lacking something for me. I really don't want to sell the Leica stuff, but I can't justify keeping the gear when I spend a majority of my time deployed and can never use it.

This thread has helped me a lot in deciding to settle on the olympus
...Show more

I've done something similar. I wanted to get used to shooting a m4/3 system so I initially picked up the E-P5. Liked it, but a few things made me exchange it for the E-M5.

- EVF was lovely the best I've ever used, just didn't like that it wasn't fixed. I found that if its not built in, I tend to not use it that much. I had the GPS attachment for the 5DM3 and found not using it that often because it was a pain to keep on attaching it to the hot shoe and turning on.
- the humming from the 5-axis was more noticeable, maybe because it wasn't weather sealed. In a quiet room you could noticeably hear it.
- I was buying it at its high price, I saw this as a temporary stop gap at most until the GX7 and now the E-M1 was released. If I kept the 17 which I was thinking, I figured selling the E-P5 would be difficult and maybe be able to get $800 with EVF maybe a little more. Conversely the E-M5's price has stabilized mostly, and I ended up getting it for $900 with kit, I could probably sell it for $650-700 later.

What I loved about it
- 2x2 mode dial was fantastic to use.
- Picture Story Mode while gimmicky was really nice to use.
- really nice build.

Kind words David but I would not know where to start or have the confidence to presume I could sell a photo. I think the price of the EM-1 plus that lens will be in excess of $2000 , would you not think? or there about.



I worry that it will be far higher than 2000

I'm expecting the prices to be on the order of $1500 each for the EM-1 body and the 12-40 lens, so the kit perhaps $2750. I'm trying not to get too interested until after the initial excitement subsides and the early adapters have thoroughly tested it

I could see the lens price being lower than what people might expect considering it doesn't seem to have stabilization built into it.

. Of course it will be. I will be extremely disappointed if it isn't, as it means that this PRO lens really isn't that good.

I'm hoping for pricing akin to the HG 12-60 in 4/3rds, so on the order of $1200 for the lens and $8-900 extra for the lens in a kit.
Oly has a history of severe discounts on lenses in kits, look at the MSRP to kit discount on the 12-50.

That's definitely possible if Olympus offers this lens as a package/kit, and it's certainly encouraging that they are showing photos of this lens on the E-M1 as that increases the likelihood that they will.

The launch of this pro-grade E-M1 and PRO line of lenses signals the maturity and viability of the m43 system as an alternative system for pro and serious photographers.

Note that the only 4/3rds or m43 normal zoom Oly's shipped but not kitted was the 14-35/2. Even the strange & odd 4/3rds ones have been available as a kit in at least one market.

I'd bet there will be a E-M1/12-40 kit at launch.

12-40/2.8 is appealing, albeit with some reserve due to the very nice primes that are much faster.

Primes are great if you are shooting with 2 bodies. Having to change lenses frequently is such a PITA especially when changing lenses is just inconvenient or may cause you to lose the shot. I was at the dunes in Death Valley and having to change lenses is almost scary when there is a breeze because of fine sand in the air. Under such circumstances having 2 bodies with 2 prime-quality zooms (7-14 or 12-40 + 35-100) would be the ideal way to go IMO.

^^^^^ Agree. And so I have, so far two E-M5's and twelve m43 lenses. Zooms for travel and poor lens-changing conditions, primes for, well, prime conditions, along with two bodies for flexibility and back-up. Although, even when traveling with the 12-35 and 35-100, I almost always have the 25/1.4 in the bag "just in case." And lately an RX100 sometimes assumes the second-camera role for a smaller kit.
