After shooting with a D200 and a raft of large lenses for several years, I've been wanting to add something smaller and lighter, and so have been looking hard at MFT. Since I'm an Olympus fan from the old days, all my homework boiled down to either an E-P3 or the new E-M5. Finally, a few days ago, after much back-and-forth, I pre-ordered an E-M5. This, in spite of historically never being an early adopter of any new model or technology, much preferring to let other brave souls have the pleasures and the risks of owning the first one on the block. However, when I placed the pre-order I probably should have turned off my computer until the E-M5 was shipped--because yesterday I ran into a deal I couldn't refuse on a pristine three-month-old silver E-P3 kit, complete with three Olympus MFT lenses (the usual two zooms plus the highly regarded 45mm/1.8), AND a VF3--and several other filters and misc goodies, for just over $1K shipped. So now that the deal is done, and I have ordered an Asahi cover kit, I have to hope that I like this bird in the hand, since I've officially canceled my pre-order for the one in the bush. After 50 years of film and several years of Nikon pro-level digital equipment, this is my first MFT. I suppose if it doesn't work out I can always sell the E-P3 and buy an E-M5 later this year, but from a purely subjective viewpoint I really do like the looks of the E-P3 much better. Maybe it's years of using Leica and Canon film rangefinders, but my eye just couldn't get used to that DSLR-like dowager hump on the E-M5. I'd have much preferred to have new guts inside the old shape, with a usable but removable VF--or at least a VF that was more fluidly integrated into the body. And I think I can live without a flip-out OLED. I'm keeping my Nikon gear. Heavy or not, by now the D200 is a natural extension of my fingers, like touch-typing. It's a couple or three generations obsolete (like me), but I still love it, and ISO 800 and 10MP is good enough--most of the time. Anyway, I'm betting the D200's APS-C 10MP with good VR glass is still at least the equal of 12 MP on a much smaller (but newer) sensor. Maybe I'm wrong. If so, it won't be the first time.
