E-M5 and Panasonic 35-100mm – Final Thoughts

Having given the lens a good write up but its combination with the E-M5 less of a blessing, I decided to renew my acquaintance with the lens plus E-M5 in some half decent light. To the handling. It still isn’t great, but you may be fine. Looking at the way I hold the E-M5, the …
