Re: I came close. Wonderful little camera!

One of my friends recently switched from the D7000 to the ODM. He is a long-time Nikon user (D50, D90, D7000). He switched primarily for the smaller size and in-body image stabilization. He's very happy with the ODM despite the somewhat lesser choice of lenses.

1- Get the accessory grip but don't use the bottom battery part. Why? Much better grip and ergonomic feel.

2- The Olympus has a much better preamp and much wider frequency response for recording audio using an external mike. I would rate it a better video camera.

3- The D7000 sees better into the shadows - and less noise.

4- The electronic viewfinder on the Olympus may bother some.

5- The lens selection for the Nikon is better.

6- The smaller and lighter Olympus will appeal to many.

I passed, after careful consideration and actual handling of both.

Nice post.
