I'm currently a dslr user looking to transition to micro 4/3. Right now I shoot with a d700 and also shot film with a Nikon n80. I love my d700 but I am a petite mom of a 3 year old and 19 month old and lugging around my d700 and lenses is just too heavy when also chasing around the kids. Before kids it wasn't much of a problem, but now i find myself leaving it at home and missing many everday shots because of the bulk.We like to travel, and my husband and I like to hike/ backpack also, making a lighter setup seem much more attractive. I would probably keep my n80 and 2 lenses for times that i want to utilize maximum dof with my dslr lenses (portraits etc) but sell the d700 (only after I have spent some time with the m4/3 and am sure I like it). For reference I mostly shoot family, environmental portraits, landscapes/travel, and occasionally macro. I recently tried the x100 and loved it, but I couldn't commit to the one focal length and the autofocus was a bit too slow. Otherwise, an amazing camera. Here is where i need some opinions. I found a great deal on a refurbished EP3 with 14-42 ii for $600. If I ordered this I could also afford to get the 45 1.8 and 25 1.4 (I love primes). And maybe I could pick up the 12 2.0 in the next year and have an amazing kit. It seems like the advice is normally to invest in good Glass, not camera bodies..... Or I could get the EM5 with 14-42 plus one only one lens (45 or 25) for about the same price. It seems like everyone is raving about the EM5 and if it is really that much better than the ep3, then maybe I should go with it. Evf and tilt screen are cool on the em5, but not deal breakers for me. I know the DR and high ISO capabilities of the EM5 are supposed to be better ( which coming from a d700 would be desirable), but i am not sure by how much. Just wondering if the EM5 is that much better over the EP3, especially for $500 more. Also, I am not sure how long I would have to end up waiting for an EM5 since I am not even on a preorder/waiting list. If I am going to transition, I would like to do it soon so I can sell my d700 for the most $$ while they are still pretty hot. So that may be a deciding factor too... If you made it this far, thanks for reading. I'd love any advice/insight, especially from those that have owned both the ep3 and em5.
