Which lenses do you like better?

To me, the Sonys are too expensive and not wonderful enough to justify the 
expense.

But I get a kick out of playing around with old stuff, as I suspect you do, as 
well. In such a case, I’d say the Oly wins.

Don’t worry about what may be, grasshopper; worry about what is.

If I never got another camera, I’d be happy with what I got. The “upgrade 
treadmill” is psychologically damaging in the long run.

I don’t have the very first OM lens I ever bought, but I still have some that I 
bought nearly 40 years ago! To me, that feels better than going out and 
swapping systems every few years.
