Default Bit the Bullet

Finally bit the bullet and have got the the OM-D E-M1 Mark II.
Purchased it from a local retail store (Harvey Norman) which were discounting it $200 (Australian dollars) & Olympus currently have $300 cashback (VISA credit gift card). Have been waiting for a price drop or a Olympus promotion so this deal was to good to refuse for me.





Now I will have to decide what to do with my E-M1 & E-M10.
Will keep the E-M0 as it's a great little camera with the pancake zoom when traveling very light or social events where you don't want a bigger camera.(have been able to sneak it in to a few concerts & get some great shots with it)
Now not sure what to do with my E-M1 sell it or keep it as a second body?
My kids will be able to use it when we go out as I still have enough lenses for it & the E-M10.

Congratulations!

I kept my E-M1 and have utilized it as the backup to my E-M1 Mark II. Have wound up taking it out a couple of times instead of the Mark II. Still love using it, and it feels much more compact after using the Mark II for a little while.

Thanks Greg & Steven.
Just got another $150 off as price has dropped again (Black Friday Sale.) and the retailer has a 7 day price guarantee. Have the battery grip on order so will use this money towards it.

I'll be interested in hearing how the E-M1 Mark II and Panasonic 100-400 work for you.
