Jumped to a m43-system as I wanted a smaller travel camera. So far my impressions are good. IQ is not that far from K-5.

Edited the post as the original images are gone. Some vacation shots from Greece.

#1 Olympus 45/1.8


#2 Olympus 45/1.8


#3 Olympus 45/1.8


#4 Pentax M75-150/4


#5 Pentax M75-150/4


#6 Olympus 45/1.8

Looks rather the tilt adapter was the toy to play with... Very Happy

Manual focus lenses were limited to DA10-17 FE on a normal adapter and these two on the tilt adapter, hence the tilt emphasis.
And of course that's something new and "exciting" that can be done with my old lenses Smile.

I know , one year later on . . . . But I also got E-pm2 recently and I am using it !
I stopped using early 12MP Olly m4/3 when I got a sony nex but E-pm2 is similar IQ to nex and I am using both now.
I've chipped in to remind others that there is a big leap in IQ with 2nd gen. Olly sensor and aps-c compared to early 12mp m4/3 sensor.
At least 1st gen are now cheap ~ $100 for body.

It's a good (and small) tool.
Just would like to have couple more fn-buttons to make it perfect, but it's not needed with MF-lenses.
Now I've got also a Panasonic GF-2 for video with modified FW. That's actually good for photos also, but with higher ISOs the difference between generations starts to show.

I modified the original post, as the photos were lost.

Congratulations for the camera . How do you feel it ? How does the stabilisation Works with mfl ?
I intended to get one myself mainly as af carry-everywhere camera ,but still with the epl1 for now.

Sorry, I don't have too much experience with stabilization and MF-lenses.
My PM2 is usually accompanied by either Lumix 20/1.7 or 14/2.5, they're just too easy and small.
With those the stabilization works good IMHO.
