In Topic: Oly OM-D EM5 upgrade path - what's the logical next move?

21 March 2018 - 06:16 AM

The E-M5mkII has the same sensor as your E-M5. Definitely not worth it to upgrade. If you are going to upgrade, get the E-M1mkII. Or you can wait until fall timeframe and see what Olympus does with the E-M5mkIII which should be coming out soon. Alternatively, you could upgrade to the Panasonic GH5.

I'll give you a different option. 

 

Olympus 60mm Macro & Nauticam port

Olympus 12-50 - Uses the same port as macro, just lose the ability to use macro button during dive (but you have the 60mm anyway). You can 3D print a much less complicated gear for really cheap.

Panasonic 8mm & 100mm dome. 

 

Then you only have 2 ports to worry about, covers the range, and the 12-50mm is only about $150 used

 

I wouldn't do the 9-18mm. I used that combo and didn't like it. I now use a Panasonic 7-14mm instead.

I use Deepshots zoom gear for Pana 7-14mm and it works well.  Saves you some money over OEM.

Or, even cheaper, 3D print your own. Find someone that has a printer, or use a printing service. Works great. I gave a friend $10 US to make it for me. I've also used him for a few other gears as well.
