Olympus fever has set in.
 
I bought a gently used Olympus OM-D EM-10 to take to Ireland. Loved the camera. Came home and bought an Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm 2.8 and loved it and the EM-10. Wife decided she liked the combo and started taking it. I then bought an Olympus OM-D EM 5 Mark ii which was even more gently used than the EM-10 with all accessories and a base with a larger hand grip. Wife liked that one more than the EM-10 so I have the EM-10 back and she has the EM 5 ii and the 40-150mm 2.8. I still have the 14-42mm kit lens, the 40-150mm 4/5.6, a Panasonic 25mm 1.7 and the Sigma 60mm 2.8. I still have all the Nikon cameras and all the Pro lenses but I think some of the bodies and lenses might just get sold. :)

By the way, now looking at the 12-40mm 2.8 Pro lens.

Sounds like you have an incipient case of GAS coming on. ;D

The 12-40 f/2.8 is a keeper.... The Pany 12-60 f/2.8-4 is pretty close to it.

Need the Oly lens cap 15mm f/8 or the 8mm f/8 fisheye to have fun with? I can send them to you.

Hear what pro photographer, Linda Gregory has to say on the OMD M5 Mkii ...
https://photocamel.com/forum/portrai...ml#post2399159

Not to mention my own takes on the Olympus 40-150mm F2.8 Pro + X1.4 converter. (hypertext links are PhotoCamel internal)
Laughing Kookaburra, and Shy Rosella illustrate the M5 Mkii's stellar performance and IQ, coupled with the converter.

The OMD M5 Mkii auto focus is lightning fast. It can shoot RAW files at either 5fps, or 10fps continuously until the card is full.
It shoots stunning 1080 HD movies at 60fps, which can be edited in Olympus Viewer3 that comes bundled with the camera.
The in-body 5 axis image stabliser eliminates camera shake, full splash resistant weather sealing lets you shoot in rain (if you like that sort of thing).

i love my 12-40. Only take it off for the 60mm macro.

60mm Macro is nice, and I like the 30mm Macro too oddly enough.
