    Two years ago I was a Nikon Fanatic. Now I find myself shooting an Olympus camera, equipped with lenses made by Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, and Rokinon. I'm about to head North for Xmas with an ultra-light 5 lens kit that's every bit as capable as a kit of my beloved Nikkors.

    Nikon began introducing DX lenses in 2003, and we believed it would result in much smaller, more affordable lenses. It didn't happen, but u4/3 has delivered on that promise.

    Something in the photo for a sense of scale would be nice!

    Hey Frank
    You stolen my collection?...this is exactly the lens collection i have minus the 7.5.
    I too spent a lot of cash at nikon and most lenses i had just seemed to be not quite right on focus / sharpness.....as a total amateur I was too afraid to mess with focus calibration....dont get me wrong i got some ok by my opinion shots , but M4/3 with the contrast detect just seem to nail more keepers for me (as you can tell by my posts...not very good , But to me they are true to what i feel and experience at that moment) now i'm content with my gear (gas gone)otherwise wife would beat me to death with the switch back to DSLR...and we all know they are bigger and heavier!! Just going to have some fun learning how to compose and shoot better now.

    Merry christmas
    Regards
    Scott.

    Exactly the reason why I switched from Nikon to M43; small primes... My 5 lens + body bag weights less then my Nikon 2 zoom +body bag, and more than doubles the perspective range.

    this image confirms it!

    :eek:This was my nikon d7000/sigma 28 f1.8 set up for virtually identical output to E P5 with 20mm
    taken from camerasize comparison...funny thing is it sure felt /looked and weighed heavier....Nuff said!
