Default replacing Oly E-510

I am a hobby shooter with success in contests and selling images. But alas I am an idiot when it comes to specs and techs and those sorts of things.

I have all four third lenses.
I want to continue using them as I can't afford to invest in a new body and new lenses too.

I need recommendations for a new body that can use my lenses with/without an adapter.

Thank you for any assistance.

You should ask our Oly forum members about the OMD-EM1 camera and it's performance with 4/3 lenses. Oly is out of the 4/3 business and everything is m4/3 now but their new flagship is supposed to work very well with 4/3 glass.

The nice thing is that you can use your existing lenses with any of the m4/3 line (but you need and adapter). However, only the EM-1 can do PDAF (better focus for 4/3 lenses).

Gears: Olympus Gears including E-620, OM-D E-M5 Mark II and E-M1 MK 1 with 14-150mm Mark II, 12-40mm f2.8, 15mm f8 cap lens, 60mm Macro, 25 and 45mm f1.8 and MMF3 4/3 adapters. On the 4/3 side: 9-18mm, 35mm Macro, FL-36R and FL-50. Also Rokinon mFT 7.5mm f3.5 Fisheye and 85mm f1.4, Pentax 50mm f1.7 with K to m4/3 adapter, Olympus OM 200mm with OM to m4/3 adapter ... and it is more than enough ... I hope!
