p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Finally did it!!!


After months of going back and forth regarding a second smaller camera for street/travel and not loving any of the mid-range micro 4/3 options I tried, I finally went all in and traded in my Nikon gear for an OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the 12-40 and 40-150 2.8 PRO lenses. To me this feels like a mini-D500 with all the portability I'm looking for. I have not had much of a chance to shoot and closely review all the images, but the idea of walking around with an 80-300 f2.8 equivalent lens that weighs so little and has image quality almost identical to my Nikon gear is astounding. The image stabilization is just mind-blowing too. Can't wait to get a few primes and shoot with full image stabilization.

Although it is going to take a while to acclimatize to the new gear, I am looking forward to carrying my gear a lot more often and making more images.

Thanks to all who gave me great advice of the last few weeks and showed me what these "small" systems can do.

Welcome to the world of m43, Adrian!

I would encourage any newcomer to check out this review ... if you have not already done so ... especially for those coming from Nikon.

That review surely will result in a number of additional units being sold no doubt...

Kind of feel like the guy deserves a bit of a cut of the action

Thanks Bobby. That link was one of the reasons I was inspired to switch. Not sure if you have seen the link below. More spectacular micro 4/3 photos. Some people have incredible skills.

Thanks for that 500px link. I have not seen this. Yes, some amazing captures there - and I believe his photos are heavily Photoshopped - as you won't get the intense blur that you see around the subject - must be enhanced in post.
