Default E-M10 second body

Purchased an OM-D E-M10 as a second body for my m43 camera kit and for my son to use when he is out with me as he is showing an interest in photography.
Was on sale at a very good price thought it would make a good second body as it has a similar sensor to E-M5, same image processor as the E-M1 and similar image output. It's not as advanced as my E-M1 but it's nice to have a camera with a different lens on when your shooting sometimes (instead of changing lenses).
Purchased a second hand 14-42mm pancake lens later as I thought the E-M10 would make a great camera to put in my jacket pocket (well almost) or throw in the wife's handbag when I don't want to take my E-M1 and is a much better camera than my Lumix DMC-LX5 which I use now when I don't want to take my E-M1.
Have read mixed reviews about the 14-42 but I think it a good lens for the price and considering it being a pancake zoom lens.

Here are a few shots with the E-M10 & 14-42 from a recent family day trip to the snow.

How do you think it compares to the em-5? I have a couple of friends interested in either the em-5 plus 14-42 kit lens for 499 (at BH) vs. this same setup for 599. They are both fairly beginning photographers, but for the price I think both would be great cameras to learn on.

Drew, from what I hear the EM10 is at least equal to the em5 in all categories except of course waterproofing. Whether it's 100 dollars better, well I don't know. I got mine at a drastic discount for I believe 375 or something like that (no kit lens).

I would recommend picking up the grip eventually though.

Cute images, . Hard to contemplate snow this time of the year in Texas, LOL.

Dual cameras is a great idea when shooting any fast-paced subject, and kids playing in any weather is definitely one of those.
