There's the rub.

Unless you get a PDAF camera, you're locking yourself out of all the incredible 
PDAF lenses out there. The 4/3rds SHG lenses are INCREDIBLE!

You love the OM 100/2. Wait until you try the E-System 150/2! Or the 35-100/2 
(my "bag of primes"). Plus, as a Kodak sensor fan, you get to use the SHG 
lenses on your E-System bodies.

That may not make a difference to you. But the 4/3rds SHG lenses are an 
incredible bargain these days, and the two that I have blow away most other 
lenses I've used. (I have to sit on my hands whenever other SHG lenses pop up, 
since my income is CoViD-19 deprived these days.)
