What do you see as the main advantage to yourself of this camera over, say, a 5D/D700?
Curious why some of you, owning a bunch of Canon or Nikon glass already, would buy into this additional camera system. Trying to understand what the OM-D allows you to do that can't be done with your current Nikon/Canon gear.
i am buying into the system. my motivations are not based my professional shooting though. photography started as a pure love for me with the photography of my family. as i shoot more weddings, i shoot my family less. i stepped back and looked at why this was happening. one of the biggest factors was that i no longer wanted to pick up my 'big camera' during the week...they remained tucked away in a bag, ready for the next shoot.
the OMD won out for me over the xpro 1, x100, and sony nex cameras in large part because of the lens lineup that is available. there are some stellar little primes. my OMD has a 32gb card in it and comes with me everywhere...i just shoot whatever i want to shoot and i'll process later.
to answer your question directly, my 5d3 with 35L crushes the OMD in all categories...except for size.
