I am going to a 3-week vacation in Bali next month. I am leaving my 5D3 at home and bringing om-d with 2 lenses (9-18 and 12-35) and fl-600r flash. I think I will enjoy traveling lighter this time. The whole setup fits into a hadley small bag with enough room to spare for an ipad and travel documents.

I hear ya. I purchased a similar set-up for upcoming travel in Costa Rica. I will still bring the 1 series for surf action photography though.

I'm originally from Indonesia. Pay for my round-trip ticket to Bali and I'd be happy to be your tour guide and translator for free :D

Everybody going on trips: share some snaps when you get back!

Eager to hear what you think about it.

I'm eager to try it. I have the X100s on order so I need to (quickly) decide which body to keep (GX1, EPM2, GF3) and which lens to keep (15mm, 17mm, 20mm). I'm thinking it'll be the epm2 and 17mm but I can still return the emp2 which makes it easier that way. I see no reason to keep the 20 once I've compared them. But yeah, I'm curious to see if I'll want to stay with MFT now or go to the X100s in March. I'm borrowing a X100 starting this weekend so I can at least play with it again and see how I feel with them side by side... Tomorrow night can't come soon enough.

I really regret being an early adopter...could have used that extra money towards lenses. I didn't think they'd depreciate so quickly.

The OM-D, 4/3, and Fuji X series are really exciting systems. I have many days where I think about downsizing my DSLR rig for these smaller systems. One problem is that there's just too much choice!

The X100s is not an interchangable 4/3 camera, is it? I keep seeing "fixed lens" thrown around with it.

Its a fixed lens system. You are able to ad an wide angle adapter.

not much to say yet really. I like the feel, I like the focal length, it seems sharp enough. AF hasn't blown me away when comparing it but it seems better when just shooting it (kids in lowish light). The MF switch is cool but MF is electronic and lags ever so slightly (it works and it's a half turn lock to lock but it's not mechanical). I plan on shooting it all weekend as my only lens on one of the 2 cameras above when I climb mount washington so hopefully I get some fun shots with it there. Stay tuned.

I need to pick ONE MFT body and ONE lens soonish so I need to get to testing a make up my mind. I will say if I keep the 17mm (which I will if it's faster AF wise with the kids) then the camera MUST be the EPM2 to fit in the pelican I want it to go in. The lens is just enough long enough it won't fit in the box lens "up". The hotshoe has to be "up" and the GX1 is just too tall to fit...

What this thread needs is some pics. Nothing particularly awesome, just fun snaps from this morning. All taken with the E-M5 and 17mm f/1.8:

^^^^ Nice snaps! EM5 is so good that it keeps up with moderate actions easily especially with a fast prime.

The E-M5 price really hasn't dropped much at all yet through legitimate sellers. I think it was $1000 at launch, and after the current $50 discount expires tomorrow it will still be $999 at B&H. There have been a couple of small sales and deals with lenses, but compared to other cameras (m4/3s especially) the price has been very stable.

I don't consider beat-n-retail on ebay a legit seller. And even if you do, the $200 difference vs launch price of the E-M5 isn't going to do a hell of a lot when lens shopping. Plus, you've been using a pretty nice camera for maybe nine months.
