About m4/3 for leisure.
In reply to Donald Chin, Jun 27, 2011

I'm the same way; I use my m4/3 hardware (GF1 and GH2) for leisure shooting and, more and more, for video. This is most of my shooting, actually. If I need to take a portrait, use wireless flash, need shallow DOF, whatever, I use a dSLR. Whenever I read someone bemoaning lack of "pro" m4/3 or 4/3, I just wince; do they not understand the limitations of the size of the sensor? Or the limitations of a system with few (native) lenses...lenses that can't just be rented when needed? An earlier poster even wrote "top pro", whatever that means.

Anyway, I think that the m4/3 system, especially as developed by Pany with its emphasis on video, serves its market niche very well and I'm quite pleased with it. Like many others, I am eagerly awaiting new lenses...don't really want to use an adapter so that I can use larger, heavier lenses.

Your photos, using the 45-200, show just how good such as portable system can be.
