    Last year in March I decided to try the Mirrorless world. We were going on a trip to Paris and I wanted to see if I could get decent results without lugging the big rig around all day.
    I was quite happy the results: Paris pictures

    This was the little kit I brought in the F-5XA bag

    1.5 year later I'm all hooked on M43. Bringing a bit larger kit to China for 4 weeks - enough for 3 shooters in one small bag (F-5XC) :smile:

    I'm not fooling myself - I know the quality of the images I get from the my Nikon D700 is better but we would not have come home with all these images and the kids wouldn't have had cameras on the trip too.

    Looking through our images we are quite happy with the results. We haven't had much time to PP yet but there is some ready. Some of them have already been showed in other threads but here they are.

    We got a few of Lasse images ready today
    Some more in Lasses set on flickr here

    Looks awesome, as always. I love how each of the kids seems to have preferred focal lengths. The 12-50 got lots of use from everyone, followed by the P20 (at least by you and your daughter). The O60 barely left you bag at all!

    I did my last trip to China entirely with the PL 20mm on the E-PL1 with a VF-2. Small, light, and works great for indoors, outdoors, portraits, landscapes, and up close.

    I enjoyed following your family's travels on Flickr as well. Wonderful images and thanks for sharing with everyone Morten! You should post the bug pics lol.

    Also I really enjoyed Lisa's panda series, she's got a great sense of style and individuality.

    Nice pictures. It is what m43 is about : taking pictures and enjoy the trip with the family.
    Last year in china i choose m43 over FX, and i never regret it.

    Good to see kids into photograph.

    Many thanks

    Thank you - If I had brought my FX kit I wouldn't have got all these images
    And the kids wouldn't have had a camera :smile:

    Many thanks - have a fantastic trip!
    Looking forward to seeing your images
