    • @Cinegain I always enjoy your insights, and it's refreshing to hear someone taking into account the fun factor. But I still believe lenses, LED lights, microphones, tripods, sliders, gimbals and so on are a better investment than cameras, since we usually hold onto them for many years or even decades,  whereas we often trade in or sell camera bodies every few years. Why is that? I'll get to that in a moment, but first... I'd make a graph but my computer skills are nil, so I'll just have to type it out the old-fashioned way 🙂. 1 Leica Nocticron - $1,200/10 years = $10/month investment 3 camera bodies - $2,000 pc./10 years, sell two on eBay for $1,000/each... ? BTW, my math skills are nil too! Of course, I'm guessing many of us will own more than three camera bodies over the course of 10 years. Returning to the fun factor. Take a look at any of the forum threads for cameras, and you'll see lots of hand wringing, dozens upon dozens of criticisms about ergonomics, features, jello, noise, frame rates, codecs and so on. Now, check out the lens subforum. So quiet! Hardly a single dissatisfied user to speak of. Take the Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens, for example, the one I spent all my energy on trying to dissuade readers from purchasing. 😂 Nary a murmur. 
    • Good point. I never intended to be a filmmaker, let alone a considerate one. I keep trying, some days it pays off, some days it doesn't. Every day I learn something, usually through my failures more than my successes. 
    • I still in some respect treat every camera I use as if I'm shooting film...I think just burning through footage or photos hurts the choices one makes and you land up not knowing when you got it right from wrong.
    • Video AF and AFC is crap (or non existent) with EF lenses on M43 but AFS is pretty much native.      EF to E is much slower with most E mount cameras though I believe the later ones are much better.
    • @wolf33d Actually, the 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens is by no means a soft lens - I did a direct comparison between it and the $1,000+ Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 on my GM1 a few years back and was surprised at how well it held up. Unfortunately, it hasn't got a manual focus ring. And I never was able to find a decent ND filter for it here in Vietnam because of the small filter thread (37mm I think).
