I saw a link to this forum on POTN and thought I'd come over. My health has been dictating most of my life the last bunch of years. I've been a hobby photographer since I took my first shot with an A1 when I was 5. I went digital in 2006, with a canon 30D, tried the 50D and hated it, now I have the 60D which I thought would stink, but I REALLY like it. In 2009 my health started getting worse and a few people on POTN recommended the micro 4/3 cameras. I hate to say it but I wasn't impressed at all. I sold all my nice glass and bought cheaper lenses in the hopes of trying to stick with photography without having to go down to a p&s. I had the G11 for a year and liked it, but the photos still looked to "point and shooty" to me. Last week I stumbled on again and saw some posts about the OMD. I can't believe how nice that camera looks! In just 3 short years! So now I'm trying to convince myself to buy it. Well not convince myself so much, as to try to FIND one, and see how it fits. I worry about the size and how my hands will handle it, my husband wants me to try it before buying, but no one anywhere has one, so it'd have to be buy then return if it doesn't fit right. My problems/questions are 1- this will be my ONLY camera, meaning I can't afford to keep both systems would going "down" from a DSLR be too hard 2- I hate the current prices, I've even seen some used selling for $100+ more then new! Sure they're not in stock anywhere, and who knows how long a wait there is. But even the lenses are out of stock in a lot of places. I don't want to buy the lenses I want and not get the camera for 6 months. 3- if this is going to my only camera should I get the OMD and settle for nothing less, or would a different camera be just as good at half the price? 4- to get the better glass it seems the weight and size is too much, is the cheaper small glass still great? 5- I shoot things that may not work with this camera system. This past weekend I shot in the woods at ISO6400 wide open and still couldn't get the shot i wanted. I shoot my husbands band in dark bars (less and less now with my health) there it's normally ISO3200 and really pushing the lenses. I shoot birds, but with my current lens it's very hard. I worry with the OMD it'll be even worse. Sure it's not something I shoot all the time, but when every night at 7pm a heron flies over our house to go to the pond up the hill I'd like to get a shot of him. I shoot bugs and butterflies too with this lens and get frustrated at it's slowness and lack of great focusing. Will the OMD be worse then this? (just so some of you who came from canon know it's the 55-250- not a great lens, but better then I thought it'd be.) 6- With my A1 I shot 50mm for years. Never really needing more. Then I found you could buy the old FD lenses still and I then started shooting 35-50-85 with my others used, but much less. Now I use the 10-22, 28 prime, and 55-250 a lot. I use the 28-105 as my walk around. But I'm tried of the weight. I worry that going to M4/3 I'll want the best IQ possible but that'll mean primes only. Will the zooms be good in less then good light? If I'm on an easy walk in the woods and don't want the weight or hassle of three primes will the 12-50 be ok? I know this camera has good high ISO, but is it enough? OK I guess I'll stop there. First post and I'm already wearing out my welcome! I guess I'm just frustrated with my health and I'm worried about switching systems. But I'm also excited with the prospect of being able to have my camera with me more, and enjoying myself and making shooting more fun and less about how my back and hands feel.
