cheers, it's not just a good m43 camera, with the system as a whole, it is what I consider to be the most versatile camera for my purposes. if I shot architecture and needed tilt shift lenses, perhaps it would be less so but it really covers most of my bases.

I can't quite bring myself to selling my M9 yet though as with the 50 and 35 lenses, it still has a unique look which is perfect for certain upmarket images, but that is a rare event.

All I want now is a second body! (and a 75mm, and a 60mm macro, and a 12-35 f2.8, and a 35-100 f2.8 and a 150 f2........)

when I shot with canon gear I had 13 lenses and could not carry it all but with mft you can now have a lot of high quality glass available to you and comfortably carry it in a couple of small bags. on my next travel shoot I will carry only a small slingshot and a belt pouch, but I'll have space to carry up to 9 lenses with 2 bodies and be quite comfortable walking up hill on a hot day!!:)
