    I'm happy to say i have ended my relationship with Canon. Ha...

    I am excited to start this new journey. Should have my OM-D + Pana 20mm hopefully this week. Can't wait!

    Bonds, I feel your pain having divorced Nikon last year.

    However a new OM-D EM-5 alleviates a lot of pain :thumbup:.

    Welcome aboard!

    Well, I did keep the "nifty fifty"...but the rest of the Nikon gear (D300, grip, flashes, lenses)...they all went to fund the move to micro four thirds.

    I have broken up with Canon, and remarried twice before finally settling into m/43format.

    My relationship with canon is certainly cooling, and some of the gear is going, although I still return for a fling from time to time...

    Bonds, I just divorced my Nikon D700 kit last weekend and went OMD+lenses and so far the split has proved very amicable!!

    Amazing how many people (pros included) are switching to Mu43 even for their pro work - a fast growing and evolving format that is capturing many DSLR users.

    I dumped a pair of Nikon D7000's and my current cameras are an OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic G5. I have an old E-P1 coming as a "guest" camera. For everywhere-carry I have a Panasonic LX7.

    In truth: the DSLR's have left the building!

    Welcome to the forum and your new photographic journey!

    I love my m43 cameras but as an enthusiast, I still hold on to my D600. If something happens and i can't keep both, I'd have to let the D600 go.
