    Very weird a screenshot of a post I made a little bit earlier. Must have been copied from the clipboard without me noticing!

    Maybe? I have a feeling that this camera is going to appeal to people who want to keep things seriously small and this lens seems to be out on its own for now. Certainly the whole kit would have been top of my shortlist last year when I was being asked for my 40th birthday present list.
    The kit lens on my E-PL5 covers the same focal lengths at the same apertures so there is no strong reason to change apart from pocketability.
    I'm still wondering if I should actually just replace my "always with me" pocket canon and stop looking at toys I can't afford :)

    Not really, the Panasonic 14-42 PZ isnt much bigger.

    No problem, they go for between 100-150 used mint.

    Just bought a used EM5 (from a fellow AVF member) but was wondering whether this EM10 might have been a better buy? It seems to lack weather sealing, and has 3 instead of 5 axis image stabilisation but makes up for it with newer EM1 processing features.

    Mind you, I have an RX100ii for ultimate pocket-ability so maybe the EM5 was indeed the way to go. It certainly makes the EP5 seem overpriced in comparison which would have been the natural upgrade from my trusty EP3.

    ...I have to admit that I might have been tempted if they'd kept the 5-Axis IBIS :blush:

    Me to, but the onboard flash is pretty cool for that odd moment which the EM5 doesnt have. I HATE little screw/clip on flashes.

    I must say that this camera has got me interested. Might make a really nice 2nd camera to my EOS 40D :)

    Itll probably become your main camera, cant really think of any way that this camera is not better. (besides if you have lots of L lenses)

    I have one L lens, the 100-400 which is what I use most of the time for my wildlife photography.

    You may need to keep the 40d then, but the panasonic 100-300 is also very good. eff FL is 200-600 so pretty much spot on with the Canon.
