Olympus EM1 mkii versus Sony A7 mkiii

Olympus EM1 mkii Lenses

I must admit I’m a bit of a a pain when it comes down to cameras and their gear, I get bored very easy. Don’t get me wrong, photography is my absolute passion, i’m an experienced Wedding and Portrait Photographer near the beautiful historic city of Bath.

However after a year or so of using the same camera, I do feel the need to move on.
I have been using the Olympus EM1 mkii for the past year, with the 12-40mm f2.8 and a couple of other Olympus lenses.

I have been watching the developments of the Sony mirrorless cameras and was extremely impressed with the Sony A7 mk iii and had set my mind on getting hold of this camera.

Very excited I pre-ordered from Amazon and excitedly anticipating the arrival, well on the day of arrival, the camera had not appeared at my door, I decided to call Amazon who told me that the camera would now not be delivered for another month! 

After canceling the order, and having given myself a talking too, I decided that maybe I should help myself feel a little happier by purchasing four Olympus lenses, their latest Pro Lenses.

Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro M.Zuiko ED

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO

Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm F1.2 Pro

Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F1.2 Pro

I have now tested each lens and have decided that I’m staying with Olympus for the time being, these lenses are absolutely fabulous, they are all incredibly sharp, beautiful Bokeh and a superb rendition of contrast and of course the famous Olympus colours.

These four lenses are now in my Wedding kit bag, I feel that I can be happy with the Olympus Camera for another year, I’m now satisfied; or am I?
