        That's a nice problem to have, Dave.

          As Zuiko says, what a nice problem to have If it's really threatening to set fire to your trousers, get some nice lenses. I really like the 25mm f/1.2 and last time I looked Wex had them at a relatively good price. If you can exercise some restraint, wait until next year's super body announcement, whatever that might be. We're about due for the E-M1 Mark III.....

            I too had a Leica camera, but for me it was the ergonomics that didn’t suit... I also thought that the CA was not quite as good as I expected it to be, but that’s being very nit picky

              I think you should have one of the small, light lenses that really show the MFT 'advantage'. The 17mm f/1.8 is a great 'all-rounder' that you'll hardly notice is there. It will also show why the 35mm focal length was so popular on the traditional film Leica.

                IMVHO the E-M1 Mkll looks daft with a tiny lens, the body is too big. The Pen-F and such are right for the smaller ones.

                    If you think the EM1ii looks daft with a small lens, get a small camera to go with the small lens. My EM10ii with 14-42EZ fits easily in a largish pocket and produces good results but there'd be no point in having a lens like that on the EM1ii. I keep the big camera for use with the big lenses (12-100; 100-400 and 300/4), mainly wildlife.

                      Whoa, what have I missed? Does your journey bring you back to Olympus or are you looking elsewhere?

                            So how's the dogs, I still have that wonderful picture of the three of them, sadly one left us you said. The other two OK?

                              Unfortunately the Border Collie died a year ago, so we're only left with Toby, the FoxyPug & a (much younger) female CavalierPug.

                              Sad to hear that Ross, a picture of Toby with the Cavalier Pug would be very nice, when you have time. My wife and I thought we knew the original three we looked at the picture so often.
