Welcome to the Forum and we are in Fountain Hills March and April of each year for some warmth from Minneapolis!
I have also made a note of the Madera Canyon and its Hummingbirds in March.

Your pic says it all

And I love my M1 MkII also. and it will take me perhaps the rest of my active life to learn and use all of its software/firmware. In the meantime the camera and my 6 lens are having a wonderful time taking great, in my opinion, photos!

Certainly Beaujolais. Make reservation. When we were there about 6 years ago, I ordered Duck and it was absolutely superb. I was reminded when we lived in France! My wife’s main course of fish was also ex excellent.

Brings back memories! We were there overnight about six years ago: stayed in a very nice B&B off of Main Street and next door to a great small restaurant named, if I can recall Beaujolais. Had a great and told the chef so!
We were also to that the town was used for “Murder She Wrote” starring Angela Landsbury! Supposedly a little town in Maine on the seashore.
I took many photos including the Lighthouse and my wife and I sitting on a park table above the shore. It’s on canvas now on on our wall.
Thanks for the memories!

I have the same Olympus which I love. I also recently purchased a MEFOTO Carbon fiber
Road trip tripod which with zippered cover I easily sling over my head and back. It's light but very sturdy and with as another hog pointed out the image stabilization in the camera and now in the 12-100 f4 that I just added to my collection the images are sharper than ever. Amazon sells the tripod for $299.

Also thought you might like to know the camera bag I am using: Think Tank Mirrorless Mover. Sounds large but it is actually about 10" long by 5" wide by 6" high with a shoulder strap. Fits my EM 1 MkII with 12-40 on it and Panasonic lumix f4-5.6 45-200 beside it. Earlier I noted in error another Oly zoom but I was writing from memory......which is aging!

I have the same camera and model. I do a lot of travelling and my workhouse lens is the 12 - 40, a little heavy but compact, fast and tack sharp. Actually I found a camera bag, over the shoulder for mirrorless that holds the camera and lens read to pull out along with the zoom 14 - 150 in the 3rd upright slot. Also carry a second battery and the charger. The oly with the 12-40 is also excellent indoors with perhaps some post processing. The Image Stabilization, as you know, is phenomenal so I don't travel with a tripod anymore.

Apple does some things right.

I switched to Adobe CC in 2014. I don't think you will be disappointed in LR. It is different, but it is an ok DAM program and and a pretty good editing program. I think Aperture was an excellent DAM program and an ok editing program. But then we had all our plug-ins. Most of which will work in LR. You can set up the file system however you like. Subject matter, date, etc, it's just that you have to do it in the computer file system rather than as a managed library.

Lots of people on UHH are experts at LR, Dngallagher for one, they will happily help with technical questions. Also check out "The Lightroom Queen". And especially anything by Juliane Kost.

Thanks. Appreciate your comments and help/links

Good advice about moving, on but completely wrong answer on "post Aperture camera."

Your previous answer about Apple updating its general Raw Format files is absolutely correct. Soon Apple will do so as concerns my omd 1 MkII just like Lightroom has recently done. I googled Apple raw format and received a very clear and comprehensive explanation from 'photo' re Aperture.
BTW I did buy and download Lightroom today. It will be an interesting learning experience! One negative, for me, is it's library format. I much prefer my Aperture format which is set up by subject matter, then by date, and also sub files for the same principle subject. Thus l can look up our daughter' s family, pick a child, and scroll through their photos from birth onward by date and subject.
I will learn and use Lightroom for post processing.

I assume comment that "Aperture will keep up" is tongue-in-cheek. Apple abandoned support of Aperture several years ago, leaving user twirling in the wind. Many, of course, gravitated to Lightroom, which, as an Adobe product, is very much alive and well ... and getting better with each new release.

Actually Aperture has been keeping up as I used it for my previous Oly Omd 5 MkII. I believe Apple will up date shortly.
As to Lightroom. Being impatient I bought it today and the version which I assumed was up to date specifically listed th 5 MkII with an asterisk. When clicked it showed the RawFormat not yet available!

Doesn't Olympus supply some raw viewing/conversion software with the camera like every other camera manufacturer? Use that to convert to 16-bit TIFF or DNG or PSD.

You are correct and I am using Olympus Viewer 3 but the process is cumbersome in that I download to Olympus and then export to Aperture for processing.
Aperture and Lightroom, I am sure, will catch up!

On 17/12/16 I part exchanged my 2 x Olympus EM1 bodies for a single Olympus EM1 mark II and it is stunning. The AF is fast and accurate and I am able to achieve a high percentage of bird in flight keepers. The Pro Capture (available in full RAW) mode is just brilliant and 18fps simply fantastic. Battery life is incredible and I regularly take over 1000 shots with less than half the battery used up. The IBIS is the best available and the lenses are numerous and beautiful. Check out the Olympus E-M1II Facebook page for comments and images from numerous users. I almost bought a Fuji X-T2 but I am really pleased I bought the EM1 mark II instead.

As an Olympus user I am also more than happy with my omd 1 MkII.
However, I only shoot in Raw and neither Lightroom nor my trusty Apple Aperture have updated their Rawformats to the new Olympus.
Do you shoot in raw and if so whT software do you use for post processing?

Olympus. See signature.
Lighter, faster and quieter than a DSLR. IQ is just as good as a DSLR.

I am also a very avid Olympus fan. Three yrs ago I traded my Canon full frame 6D for a Panasonic GX7 which lasted about eight months when I bit the bullet and bought the Olympus omd 5 MkII which I loved: until the omd 1 MkII came out last month. I love it: Olympus really learned from experience. This camera is a gem. But the real advantage of Olympus is their lens selection: you can buy from their 'consumer' selection at very good pricing or from their 'pro' list. Personally, I have 6 of their lens of which five are the pro version.
Not only is the 1MkIi body very well constructed, grip friendly, but the software is extensive but easy to remember and use. Finally the newly designed battery has 2.5 times the capacity of their previous ones.
Fortunately we live in Minneapolis where a privately owned camera company with 4 outlets has been going for many years: they are professionals and their pricing equals Amazon, etc. They have been a godsend for me over the past 28 years.
Sony was my other consideration but their lens selection was limited.
Olympus can also use Panasonic lens of which I have one.
