I have to laugh when people talk about switching to micro four thirds because of the lighter weight. The e-m5 weighs exactly 7 ounces less than the Pentax K-5. Lets say you put a K-5 and 2 or 3 lenses in your camera bag. What are you carrying? Maybe 5 lbs? You would think by listening to some you're carrying 50 or 60 lbs lol. I'm 57 years old and the day I can't carry an APS-C camera along with a few lenses is the day I will quit taking photographs. I'm not putting down the system or the camera because they seem to take great photographs but I don't see why someone would switch just because of the difference in weight

May be it's not about carrying a bag full of lenses; think about carrying camera+lens in hand and carry 2 more lenses in your pocket for several hours. The difference is not worth switching? So, you don't need to switch. For some people it does!
