Upgrade from D90
Well I finally sold my D90 and now I need to decide what to replace it with. I am using an e-pl1 at the minute just to try out the m43 system.
I still have my 50 f1.8 and Nikon 70-300 so I am weighing up the options of dumping these and getting an omd or nex-7 or keeping them and getting a D700 and keeping a small camera. The D800 is outa my reach I think.
I like to shoot family (2 small kids), landscapes, street, portrait and I shoot some Motorsport or low light sport the very odd time.
I got rid of the D90 for the following reasons;
Terrible small viewfinder
Poor high iso
No af-on button which I got into recently
Slightly small grip, my pinky kept slipping of the end without the grip attached.
3 exposure bracketing
Miserable 9 point af.
This post is confusing. You obviously would prefer a large body camera, but are looking at even smaller bodied cameras than the D90? Why not just pick up a used D300s for the stuff that requires lightspeed AF, and keep the u4/3 system for your "small" camera? Then you can keep the Nikon lenses or sell them and buy something that might work better for motorsports. Of the two mirrorless cameras, I might prefer the OM-D; definitely better than your E-PL1, but not smaller - and faster to AF than the NEX-7, but nowhere near as fast as a DSLR.
