Do you still have any of your OM glass? If so, get some adapters and a speed 
booster, and the fun gets multiplied!

It’s to the point that I’ve spent more on OM glass than on micro-four-thirds 
glass in the past year. :-)

If you use adapted lenses, a speed booster is a must. Stay away from the ones 
under $100. The Metabones Ultra is supposedly superb for $450. I find the Kipon 
Baveyes Ultra to be good enough for me, at $135, currently. (I paid $150 some 
months ago.)

With the speed booster, the venerable 55mm f1.2 becomes a 39mm f0.8 lens, my 
“bokeh monster." Next Monday, I get to see what a 15mm f1.4 looks like, with 
the scheduled arrival of an OM 21/2.
