First post on a digital photography forum here!

Choosing my first proper digital camera. Don't waste too much time on why I'm going for the Olympus OMD EM10...just accept that I am :-P

Question is...do I go for the Mk1 or cough up the extra dollar for the Mk2 even though it's my first camera?

Having gone through the process of considering the EM-10 as a second body (I decided on the EM05 II BTW) I would definitely go with the EM-10 II over the EM-10. Given the current pricing I think it is worth the dollars and anyway if you get right into photography you will want the upgrade soon enough :). You might want to also check out the Micro-Four Third forums at https://www.mu-43.com/ Lots of friendly folks over there with a lot of knowledge on the micro-four thirds system.

Thank you Andrew. I am certainly leaning over to the Mk2.

I was looking at more reviews and pricing from different sites.

For £100 more ($130) I can get the EM10 Mk2 with Kit lens and another £70 ($90) they throw in the 40-150mm lens.

Not sure if it's worth me getting a second lens whilst I'm a beginner....tempting price though.

I would get the second lens ... it is a good lens and you might be surprised how much you use it.

I agree that it is worthwhile to get the 40-150 as part of the kit deal. It is a really good lens; I bought one separately myself to use with my E-M10 I.

O good. I like it when people encourage me to buy more stuff. Makes me feel less guilty about it!
