Nice.

Are you using the original OLY EM5 (version I)?

Yes. I've had the EM-5 mark I since it was released.

Great. I have had mine since its released too. Do you think of upgrading to the latest version, MK III, at all?

I am waiting to see what OLY (the new owner whatever they call themselves) will come out with later this year.

It's getting close to time to replace the EM-5 Mark I. I'm hesitant due to cost of a new housing. If I upgrade, I'll probably buy the latest EM-1.

On the other hand, the TG-6 is a fabulous camera for underwater photography and much less expensive! I may add a WA lens adapter...

Hey, Deborah! My birthday and Christmas are coming up soon...

Me too. I looked at the current model, the III, and liked it but I am concerned that it is still an older sensor. I prefer to wait for the newer versions with newer technologies and then decide if worth the upgrade. The EM5 MK I isn't great for video and I'd like to get into video more.
