    - Lumix 100-300
    - 2.0 Crop Factor

    I don't think there's any system out now that has native glass with a 600mm FL (35mm Equivalent). Couple this with the size of the 2 lenses coupled with body and again, no other system provides this.

    Sure there are. How about the Nikon 80-400 on DX sensor-equipped cameras for one. Maybe I missed your point.

    Or Sony 500mm f/4. But you'd better not even think about its price :eek:

    I think the 7-14 is also a very powerful proposition for the Micro 4/3s, offering a 14mm equivalent at the widest end -- with the size, weight and portability considered.

    Don't know much about telezooms but my three perfect things about this system are:

    1. This forum
    2. Equipment is small so it doesn't look expensive (yes, I'm married!)
    3. Equipment is small so people are not too aware of being photographed

    Ok, number 2 and 3 are true with any other mirrorless system.

    don't know about being "perfect", if I had to say what might be the best things about m43

    it may have the highest quality per sensor square inch right now :)

    Well, for the price you certainly can't beat the M43 zooms, but for quality I'll take a 7D with the Canon 400. To save money you can go the Canon 100-400. Still quite a bit more money than the M43 zooms though, but the quality (and AF) is excellent.

    Maybe just from the camara standpoint, I don't think so with the lenses thrown in.

    1. Size (why most people switch in the first place)
    2. Price (justification for switching)
    3. Selection (Comfort in switching)

    image quality
    lens selection

    I added a fourth but rank them in whatever order is most important. No other system can match the versatility of m43.

    Other's may be better at some things, but at what price (cost, weight, size?)

    Size size and size. I am now carrying a camera with me a lot more than it was ever possible when I only had a dslr.
    I no longer crib about the size and bulk of my cameras anymore especially when travelling . Image quality is excellent at low ISOs but I think the lenses should be a lot cheaper.

    I mean why is a 45 1.8 so expensive when a 50 1.8 is so cheap for a Canon covering a bigger image circle.

    The 45 1.8 is a much better lens than the Canon 50 1.8. And Canon sells a with a more similar price to the 45 and one with a much more expensive price as well. The 1.8 version is very cheaply made and has benefits from a larger production lifespan and being an old design.
