Talk about a big change. My switch to Micro Four Thirds is complete. I have just about everything I think you can buy for the basic MFT system. Here are some photos. The best part about it is this bag weighs very little and will easily fit under the seat or in the overhead bins on even the smallest plane. I can carry one bag (and a tripod) and have all I need now.
In the photo above you now see all the camera bodies and lenses I carry. From left to right:
Olympus OM-D EM-5 body
Lensbaby Composer With Sweet Optic for Micro 4/3
Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 ED Fisheye Lens (Olympus doesn’t make a Micro 4/3 fisheye)
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 Special black edition lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 17mm f/1.8 M.Zuiko Wide-Angle Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 75mm f1.8 Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 75mm to 300mm zoom Lens
Olympus OM-D EM-5 body (With battery grip)
This is the whole kit with the Olympus accessories, including the two mini flashes that come with the OM-D E-M5, the Olympus wired remote, their small flash, the microphone adapter with stereo mics, and rescued from my EP-3 days, the waist-level viewfinder. Even though the OM-D E-M5 has both an articulating screen and a built-in viewfinder, there are times where this one does the job a little better. Also picturesd is the cute little macro hot light that works off the accessory port and provides you with constant lighting for extreme close up work.
These are all the other things I carry. There is a blower, micro-fiber cloth, a bungie cord, level, Arca-Swiss mounting plate (I already have one permanently mounted on the body with the grip) a card wallet, a filter wallet filled with various ND and circular polarizing filters, a hand strap, a Black Rabbit small sling strap, the battery charger, all the documentation, an allen wrench, Lens-skirt, LED light, spare mic, USB cable, and SpiderLite light trap.
When it’s all said and done all this stuff fits nicely into a Think Tank Airport 4-Sight rolling bag.
I can’t believe how much power and flexibility I can pack into this small bag that fits on any airplane. The switch to MFT has given me lots of new options. These outweigh the few things I gave up to make the switch. I won’t look back.
