1. What were your reasons to switch?

Size & weight

Don't want optics et cetera to be designed with size as prime criteria though. The size/weight benefits of m4/3 inherent to sensor dimensions and registration distance are enough - no need to compromise optics or ergonomics to squeeze out the last 20 grams.

2. What DSLR did you switch from and what did you switch to?

Canon EOS 5D to E-PL3 (backup) and E-M5 (in a month)

3. What level would you rate yourself at (beginner, hobbits, enthusiast, pro)?


4. What type of photography do you mainly do?


5. Do you get paid for any work shot on the m4/3?

No. Don't expect to be, unless I do some book illustration work.

6. Did you switch completely or supplement your DSLR?

In the process of switching completely

7. Any regrets?

We'll see. I love the Canon FF + EF 85mm f1.8 combo for people.
