Finally, a Rainy Day
I switched back to an Olympus E-M5 III camera. The older Olympus micro 4/3 system image quality is sufficient, and the camera with a lens is smaller, lighter, and much easier to use for my photography. That factor is a requirement if I am going to have a camera with me when out walking, etc.
I had been hoping that the new OM System OM-5 camera would be sufficiently better enough to justify the cost of getting one. It wasn’t for my purposes, so I’m using the older Olympus model.
At the moment I am using the Olympus 14-150mm lens, but I intend to buy additional lenses, probably a few prime lenses, but I may also get another zoom lens. It depends on how I decide to continue with my photography.
At the beginning of 2017, I ended my Pentax days after having two Pentax DSLRs. It was also too bulky and I switched completely to MFT. I also looked at the features of the new OM-5, but it was too little for me compared to the E-M5 III, so last week I bought a used one in very good condition for half the price of an OM-5. So far I have an E-M10 II as well as a Lumix G85 and a GX85. Most of the time I use the M.Zuiko 12-45mm f4 or the Lumix 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 and the Lumix 20mm f1.7. The 20mm is my favourite focal length, I really like the angle of view (40mm equivalent) for street and landscape photography. Occasionally I also use a Laowa 10mm f2 and a Lumix 42.5 f1.7. I’m thinking of getting the 20mm f1.4 from OM System, it’s much bigger and heavier than the Lumix, but it’s weatherproof and I like to go outside in autumn and winter to shoot in all weathers.
