A different take on some of the other threads floating around about things/events that changed your photography. m43 is, after all, just a camera system. But, it is special and unique in its size and quality. How did it change your style or efforts? For me, coming from Canon and Nikon (newspaper supplied Canon 1D equipment and my own FF gear (D700, 5D) I longed for the compact systems of Leica M and Contax G that I used to use professionally and personally. I entirely switched to the EP-2, VF-2, 7-14, 20 and 45 2.8 when I left the newspaper and it fit my needs, but I was in school and not shooting much so I eventually sold the more expensive lenses and lived with the 14-45 kit. As life changed and I settled into a new career, I decided to start doing more photography again and decided to go back to a Canon 5d kit. Lovely camera, but big. This switch happened months before the OM-D was announced. As OM-D rumors swirled, I knew that it was, on paper, perfect for me and addressed the shortcomings of the EP-2. I sold the 5d kit April 23 or so, and had an OM-D in my hands April 25 - lucky enough to get one of about 11 kits Amazon had for a few hours. My first impression was, what had I done? This thing is so small. Then I started handling it and shooting it and pixel peeping high ISO files to compare to my beloved 5d. I soon thought 5what? Anyway, the OMD has revolutionized my shooting. I take it with me everywhere, or nearly everywhere. My Canon kit would have stayed at home nearly every time I've taken the OMD. The size, weight, versatility and quality make this a nearly ideal package. I've shot about 12K on it since April and the OMD is absolutely fabulous. Sure it has some weaknesses, but I've learned how to work around many of them and produce images I'm proud of. That's my story, sorry for it being so long. What is yours? What has m43 done for you?
