| p.1 #6 · Canon DSLR kit AND MFT kit? |
Are there any canon DSLR owners that also own a MFT kit? What improvements in the MFT format would it require for you to make a complete switch?
Yes, though I doubt I will ever make the complete switch. It's just another option to me. If I know I'm going to be moving around a lot that day, I grab the OM-D and the three primes (14mm, 20mm, 45mm) or sometimes just two. Otherwise it's the Canon by default. BTW OM-D is 9fps, I often use bracketing and it's so quick, sounds like just one shot even though it's taking three.
Improvements in the MFT - basically action focus. For environmental portraiture, it's fine, but you don't get the DOF when you want it. Some of my best photos this year have come from the hacked GH2 (before I had the OM-D), but that's more because of the content than the system itself.
I think the thing about MFT versus the Sonys or the other 1.6x systems, MFT body isn't smaller, or if it is, it's only by a hair. But the lenses are smaller. When you are taking along three lenses, this starts to add up. If I were to use a 1.6x system, with the same 3-prime setup I like, I wouldn't save much compared to the DSLR.
If you want to see the relative size differences I posted some photos a while back, in the bag and out of it. The MFT with the 3-prime setup is about half the volume, a third the weight compared to the 5D + 40mm f/2.8 + 85mm f/1.8 prime setup. I can post them again if you want to see them.
