I hated carrying around a huge DSLR; I know I must have looked like a huge tool whenever I took any kind of casual shots with the thing. Whenever you go to a city, you see them all over, dangling from tourists' necks - not a look I was after. I wanted small, I wanted stealthy, and the DSLR was none of those.

I pretty much shelved my DSLR completely when I bought into µ4/3. My E-P2 is not as good as my DSLR, but I knew right away that µ4/3 would be good enough for almost everything I needed. Especially now that I have wireless flash trigger on the E-PM1, and a decent native portrait lens in the 45mm f/1.8...

If I ever have call to do sports, I'll dust off the DSLR. But for pretty much everything else, the Pen's good enough.
