    Hi, I've just discovered and joined this forum.
    I'm a professional Wedding & Portrait photographer.
    For my professional work I use Nikon D700 & D300 with these lenses
    17~55 f2.8 for the D300

    14~24 f2.8
    24~70 f2.8
    70~200 f2.8

    60 f2.8 macro
    85 f1.8

    Plus 2x SB900 & 1x SB800 flashes.

    This kit is HEAVY!!!
    So I'm very seriously looking at the Olympus OM-D E5 to replace the D700.
    I'm still at the research stage and am using a Lumix GX1 for my personal work and loving it:smile:

    Honestly, I think the E-M5 can quite easily replace the crop camera in terms of output quality and handling in a far, far more compact package. With the 75/1.8 you've even got a fantastic long portrait lens in the bag that will work well for outdoor or candid shots (you need working distance at that focal, after all). However, I think there are still plenty of situations where a full frame camera holds a clear advantage in terms of AF speed and (shallow) depth of field control.

    I'm considering trimming the EOS kit (I'm a 5DII shooter, primarily travel, landscapes and candid portraiture/people) to a more barebones selection of my favorite primes and dumping most if not all of the zooms.

    Hi Mattia,

    Thanks for your very reassuring comments.

    I expect the OM-D to be in my camera bag before too long:)
