I'm coming out of digest/lurk mode to ask for recommendations from the list on 
getting started in the MFT world. I've recently retired and hope to be able to 
get back into photography now. I've got several E-system bodies and lenses on 
hand, but would like the advantages that MFT now offers in the areas of pixel 
count, size, and other features. I've been a dedicated Olympus user since 
buying an OM-10 (my first camera) in about 1981 and want to continue with 
 My plan is to purchase an OM-D E-M1 MkIII. Lens selection is a big question. 
Recent comments about the 12-100 are making me consider it, though I've 
previously been thinking about purchasing a group of lenses to cover what focal 
lengths I want: 12-40 f/2.8 II, 40-150 f/4, and 60 macro to start. Now, maybe 
get the 12-100 to start learning about the body, then expand. On the other 
hand, I'm concerned about light-gathering capability and leaning toward the 
f/2.8 aperture of the 12-40. And I'm planning to break a cardinal rule, buying 
new equipment right before a vacation. Having only one lens (the 12-100) to 
carry around is attractive for travel. Any advice/comments muchly appreciated.
