I own a Canon 60D and use it frequently. I have a good assortment of lenses for it, and enjoy shooting with it. I shoot in manual or AV mode most of the time. There are occasions, however, when I just don't feel like carrying it with me. About a year ago I was looking at m4/3 cameras as a viable option that would allow me to: 1) have a much smaller and portable camera that would 2) take much better photos than the standard point and shoot. My research a year ago led me to the Panasonic G3. I had the kit lens, as well as bought the Panasonic 20/1.7. While I enjoyed the smaller size of the camera, I never really bonded with it. I know it has a smaller sensor than my 60D, and hence the images won't compare fully to the images of the Canon, but I always felt that the G3 didn't do much better than my wife's point and shoot. I tried and tried to adjust my expectations, but it just never grew on me. I felt the images were always a bit soft, even compared to the point and shoot, and the IQ was much closer to the point and shoot that what I felt it should produce. So, after a year I parted ways with the G3 and am looking for something to replace it. I did keep the 20/1.7. My photography subjects are across the board: my kids, sports, portraits, scenery, etc. For sports, I would obviously stick to my 60D, so am not looking for a m4/3 to cover that type of photography. Have considered the Oly E-PM1, E-PM2, Panasonic GX1, but beyond that those, there are so many options it's a bit overwhelming. Price is a consideration, would prefer something on the smaller side (as I already have the DSLR), and favor some of the more retro-looking styles but that's not a deciding factor. I would put IQ at the top of the list, followed by price. Beyond those mentioned above, I am open to suggestions, or thoughts on going with one of those over any other. I don't really have much of an option to go to a store and try cameras out as Best Buy is about the only retailer near me that sells cameras, and they rarely have any in stock/on display that I am interested in. I guess one question I keep asking myself is are my expectations too high for a m4/3 camera at all? Am I spoiled, in a sense, by the images my DSLR produces? Should I give up on the m4/3 category, save my money and just get used to lugging my DSLR around? Are there m4/3 cameras that come close, but not quite, to the IQ that a DSLR can produce? Appreciate any and all thoughts, suggestions, input, criticism, etc.!
