I was thinking for that possibility but for a used OMD + 3 lenses I need almost $2000, not sure if I want to spend that amount of money in another system now.

The second two shots are amazing. I don't think any photographer or system could improve their quality!

You are a bad influence Steven,

I just bought a OMD 5 with the 12-50mm lens, I'm looking at a used 9-18mm and 40-150mm and I'm all set.

It will be raining in London this Friday according with the forecast but no reason to be worried I'm using a Olympus now, I'm back guys...!!

Are those two lenses weatherized?

That's terrific! The owners reviews for that camera have been highly positive.

Do you still have your weatherproofed 12-60 and 50-200?? Those would work well with the adapter on the OMD-EM5.

As your in the city this weekend, grab a brolley you never know with this place .. it can be cold wet, wet, and miserable and did I mention wet ? Maker sure that you get a chance to get down to Greenwich and see the old Naval school and check out the Cutty Sark! Watch out for the locals though ..

Ted,

Only the 12-50mm f4-5.6 is weather proof the 9-18 and 40-150mm not.

Steven,

It is an amazing little camera, I was so worried because the weight of my Nikon gear so I did a walk last Saturday with the same set up I was thinking to bring to London and I finished the day exhausted.

I sold everything last year when I jumped to Nikon but those 3 lenses are enough for me, I have from 9mm to 150mm to cover all the situations and have fun the next two weeks.

I'll will post my pictures when I come back.

Thank you for the advice Harj,

The weather situation and the weight of my Nikon set up is what pushed me to buy the Olympus OMD.

I will spent 5 days in London and 6 days in Paris, I'll check the paces you recommend and I'm ready for the wet weather.

I'll posting my pictures.

Marcelo

You will love the OM-D. The 12-50 is not the best lens in the work but it is working fine ... and doesn't care about getting wet

If you want to improve your OM-D kit, think about the 45mm f1.8 (not too expensive and very small/light) and the Rokinon 7.5mm f3.5 Fisheye (small, cheap and so much fun). With the other lenses, you should be ok for a while!

Enjoy your trip!

Hi Folof,

It is a great camera and I am glad I bought it for this trip, Friday was raining the entire day but no problems at all with the camera.
Yesterday was cloudy but nice to walk and photograph the city, unfortunately the internet at the hotel is too slow that take too long to upload pictures to my gallery.
Some of Tower Bridge:









All the pictures are the OOC from the OMD.

Have a great day.

Marcelo
