I love my Pentax camera and equipment to the bits, and I also love my Olympus OM-D E-M5 and collection of m43 lenses. This year, I have taken the habit of using two camera bodies when on assignment, both for practical reasons (less time spent on changing lenses and better reactivity with the proper field-of-view) and also in order to have a spare body available were one to fail or be stolen. On my last two assignments, the Pentax K5 + Sigma 17-50 2.8 and the OM-D E-M5 + Olympus 45mm 1.8 were my dream team. But I cannot really afford maintaining two systems which are, at the end, close enough in philosophy and features: small, inconspicuous, weather resistant bodies, great prime lenses, sensors of not so different sizes characterized by an awesome dynamic range. Besides, two cameras from two different systems means more post-processing and less flexibility in lens-body combinations. So I have decided to keep the smallest system of two and sell all my Pentax equipment in order to get a Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8 zoom lens and a second body. Haven’t made my choice yet for the body. Could be a Lumix G5, a GH3 or a second E-M5.
