Congratulations James,

I love the OMD-E5 and I am sure you will enjoy shooting with it.

Not sure about AF with the 4/3 lens but Bob is giving you some feedback about it.

Looking forward to see the first shots with it in this forum.

Marcelo.

Thanks Bob. I have learned that with the 4/3 lenses (and any I guess), that if focusing is an issue (with the M5), simply clicking on the subject you want to focus on in the display, zeros the focus to that square. I guess I will learn soon enough. No one has outbid my bid of 70.00 for the MMF3 yet but you know how that can go when the auction is down to one minute. :-) I did buy the used HLG-6 grip and battery holder from B&H with my order. It was rated 9 condition so nearly like new. With my hands I think this is a must for me. Sure didn't want to pay the 300 smackers for a brand new one when this was listed for 185.00.

Thanks Marcelo, I will post some shots once I get everything I need, mostly the MMF3. Looking at a used (mint) 45mm Oly as I hear this an extremely sharp lens.
