Well, thanks to all of you, I'm now trying to figure out the best way to
purge a lot of stuff from my basement to fund a new body. I'm also
considering going Panny now, thanks to His Mooseness and He Who Lives With
Mooses.

However, I'm much more comfortable with the form factor of something like a
G95 with the battery grip - that's more like my E-M5. So, it's off to
DPReview for research and also off to eBay to unload stuff.

In my youth, I was into firearms for sport. I still have my one 9mm pistol
which I haven't shot in 10 years and will never shoot again. Fortunately,
unlike my camera, it seems to have appreciated significantly since I bought
it new in 1984, so I'm investigating the best way to sell it. If I can get
what I see them going for, it will buy a new body and a grip and a couple
of extra batteries.

Since I have 4 MFT lenses, I really need to stay with that ecosystem, so it
means either Oly or Panny.
