Would I be happy with a smaller format?
Aug 30, 2012

OK, so my current kit is a 5D classic with a couple of primes and 70-200 f/4 IS that I use for travel/landscape. I'm getting tired of carrying around DSLR and accessories (shoulder and upper back going downhill) and am thinking of getting either Fuji x-pro1 or Olympus OMD EM5 M43.

A co-worker has an EM5 and I did a quick and dirty comparison with the 5D and at first glance looks to be comparable to the full frame, can't really say for certain that one is better than the other.

I have enlarged up to 30"x40", mostly 24"x30" on the 5D. Don't know how doable this is on a smaller sensor.

The other option is to suck it up an go with a 5D III (or II) and carry it all around just like I have in the past.

Anyone else have dual format and experiences/other advice would be appreciated.
