To be clear: it took a week to ditch my Canon DSLR for the G1. Only with two lenses as i was an early adopter but I didn't use that Canon for a long time either, so not much glass there. Indeed: I have a lot of lenses now but most of them fit in a small bag and have good and some excellent IQ. 100-300 is good, Samyang 7.5 fisheye is very good, 20 mm 1.7 is very good, 14-45 for a kit also and the 45 mm 1.8 which will arrive today with my new EPL5. Try to do that with even a very small DSLR.

My sis had the D7000 (now 800E) and she could not spot the difference between Gh2 and D7000 IQ on a screen. It was pretty close. So the OMD  (and EPL5) will even better/closer.

Still: for birding, indoor sports etc none of these m43 cams are a match for the D7000. So ti depends what you shoot.
