    I sold my E-PL2 kit last week while I was on the road because I can't bear to dump my DSLR. While I was gone, I took these two photos with the E-PL2. I enjoy this camera more than my Nikon, and grab it first for photos. I think I need both, one for "work" and one for "me"... Guess I'll sell a couple of watches and buy another E-PL2... I am making PayPal richer by the day!

    I think the question was WTF was wrong with him to sell the E-PL2 just to hold onto his DSLR. ;)

    Wonderful photos, SRHEdD! What lenses were those shot with? You captured some amazing detail!

    EXACTLY!!! These are SNAPSHOTS, grab photos. No time spent, no set up, just snaps. Ridiculous!

    E-PL2 with the kit 14-42!!!! No effort, got in as close as I could, cropped the rest in PS. normal settings, no dynamic filters, but did bump the saturation in PS on the bug a bit. The cat I converted a duplicate layer to B/W and erased the eyes and nose. That cleaned up the grays and whites.

    It was hard choice to give up my 40D - but I haven't missed it yet. I spent six hours yesterday following professional disc golfers at our local tournament. I carried two:43: bodies and three lenses. I captured action shots with very little problems. I could never have carried the whole dslr kit that long and walked up and down hills as I did yesterday. I am a total convert. :cool:

    I've listed my 5DII and lenses on Craigslist several times, only to take the posts down. In each case it was the opposite of what happened here - I took some shots that reaffirmed that there was no way I could have easily made them with a m43 camera. I love m43 for what it is, but it can't replace my DSLR. I do enjoy shooting more with m43 though.

    The cat photo is amazing. I agree with ean10775 though. While I to love my little G3 there is no way I would dump my Canon 1DMKII or all my Canon lens

    Life is too short for just one camera system :)

    I've got a Canon S95 (for ultimate pocketability), I'm working on my micro 4/3 kits (for travel) and I've got my Nikon DSLR and lenses (for when I've got the time and space or I want to photograph motor sport).

    The main issue becomes which system gets the $ for the next upgrade...

    Oh and I love that cat photo!
