My wife is a Pro, and she has the 5d2 with lots of L-glass.

The OMD is a great little camera, but for pro work, no!

Main difference is in the glass, but also imagine someone paying 700-800 usd for a portrait shoot and you show up with..... a tiny OMD.....

WE might know that it can get the job done, but the customer will still think of you as not professional, which, right or wrong, is the reality of the business.

I find the lack of extreme dof-control compared to the FF is also a shortcoming in some situations if one wants to take pro pictures.

Having said this, I sold my 5d2 after I got the omd, it is really that good. But for pro work with that small extra edge in iq, cropping possibilities, extreme dof etc. Not a chance.
