Hello all,

Guess I'm after a bit of reassurance from anybody who may have made the same move.... I currently have a D90 with a couple of lenses plus an Oly E-P2 with the 20/1.7 and 45/1.8. I'm thinking of selling the Nikon gear and getting an OM-D so that I only have one system. The D90 produces great results but I find, as many others do, that I tend to leave it at home - it's the E-P2 that I carry with me. But, the results from the E-P2 are (mostly) not in the same league as the D90. Simple question - will the OM-D put out results as good as the D90 or will I regret selling it?

I bought an EPL1 a year and a half ago to "supplement" my D90. After 7 months, I moved to the GH2, and a month after that I sold my entire Nikon kit.

No regrets. Not one!

Of course, I don't do sports photography, but for everything that I do do, I am extremely happy with the camera and format. Since the OMD has even better noise characteristics at higher ISOs than the GH2, I suspect you will be really happy with the switch, too.

-J
