And that G2 fitted with the 14mm lens is smaller than your Canon G12 Anne.

Yeah, that Canon never really fit in my jeans pocket...............I missed my Fuji E900 for that reason, but the sensor was shot, and I was no longer satisfied with the pixel quality anyway, so it's gone off to camera heaven.

I appreciate all the time you've taken with links here Paul Smile

What cards are you using in your E-M5? I've been using Sandisk Extreme Pro, and can honestly say that they make a huge difference in the transfer speed, and videos are nice and smooth. Just got a 32gb Extreme Pro for $51.00 usd plus 2.99 shipping. I had all but the card in my camera stolen from my bag at the zoo. My own fault for leaving it unattended amongst a group of teenage students.

Integral Ultima 16GB class 10 - I've got 3 of them. They work very well. Smile

As I seem to use my E-M5 mainly with primes these days, I'm idly wondering whether to replace my two zooms (14-42mm II and 40-150mm) with the Oly 14-150mm... as a general walkaround lens.

I need to be talked out of it! Wink

I have the 40-150 for my regular Olys - I imagine the quality of the 4/3 lens is just as good. I've taken good images with it, and the range is excellent for most captures.

No, Anne - I have the M4/3 40-150mm, just as you have, and the 14-42mm II. I am wondering about replacing both lenses with the (M4/3) Olympus 14-150mm, i.e. covering the range of both these lenses. I realise there may be a theoretical IQ loss but, so long as it is infinitessimal, I wouldn't be too concerned as it would only be a walkaround lens. I use primes for anything of importance, e.g. photos I want to sell. Smile

EPZ hasn't done a review of the Oly 14-150........... yet (hi Josh! Wink).

I can't see using the 14-42mm very much at all now that I have the 60mm. I'm thinking I'll get a wide angle prime sometime in the distant future. I could do with 2 lenses for the E-M5, but I suppose one should have a WA JIC.Wink

You may as well order a GF2 + 14mm like myself and Anne Denny and you will be getting a back up body for free Smile

Lens on its own.

Similar problem for me and the 14-150mm! Wink There are some good deals out there.

Denny, I wonder whether the 14mm is really wide enough? I notice Pete uses the Oly 9-18mm quite a bit on his E-M5. Could be a more flexible option?

Yes CB, I have been looking seriously at that one also. There's lots of time, no rush.Wink
