I have now an Olympus 5 Mark II which I use with a couple of lenses.
Lenses from Panasonic, Panasonic/Leica, Olympus and Nikon F (1974) are used.
My Canon equipment is being gradually being sold.
The Oly 40-150 f/2.8 was received a couple of days ago. It is a very good lens. I like the photos to be sharp, crisp.

The shot of the boats was done @100mm 1/200 f/4.0 ISO 200
The cat was done @90mm 1/80 f/4.0 ISO 200

Hey Marlof ! :)
I have a Fotodiox grip but this time the camera was on my lap.
Usually I turn the ring upside-down as it bothers my hand. This is better than the Canon 5D with the 70-200 f/2.8 !

Thanks for the info. I have detached the tripod ring, since I’ve not used a tripod since using IBIS. The 40-150 is the only lens where I really prefer the ergonomics of my EM1 over the EM5-without-grip.

I love the EM5 form factor. I had two Mark 1 bodies, but sold one when I got the EM1 to use with tele lenses. Since I'm not big on tele, I still tended to use the EM5 far more than the EM1. Now the original EM5 is retired, and replaced by a Pen-F to use with the smaller Olympus primes. Hopefully in future, I can replace the EM1 with a EM5 Mark III (main wish: newer sensor), if that has a good grip option for the few times I use a telezoom.
