Came close to buying the OM-1 + 150-400 combo today, but I'm just not able to commit. It'd be up against my Z9 + 800PF, with one system staying, one system going.
Love the images I get from the Z9 + 800PF, they're absolutely stunning, but I don't love the weight and bulk. Hesitant about the IQ of the Oly gear in comparison. Would love to have a versatile zoom with a built in TC.
I'd need to get the Oly setup in hand for a few weeks to be able to fully assess if it's the right choice, but the cost of buy in is extremely steep for me. Renting is over $400 for just a few days, and that doesn't give me anywhere near enough time to really get a feel for it. And, that rental cost doesn't go towards owning the gear, so that's a bummer.
Ugh.. should i just take the plunge and buy used, see if it works, and then sell if it doesn't?
