Writing in a December 27th sansmirror.com blog post "Sansmirror Serious Camera of the Year ", Hogan acknowledged that the D7000 Nikon DX SLR he always partnered with on wilderness photo excursions had been replaced by a younger and more athletic Olympus OM-D EM-5. He specifically complained of DX's parents' growing lack of respect and its unwillingness to keep itself in shape, citing its persistently slow vision - never great - its steady weight gains, and its inability to perform significantly better than the Olympus in landscapes.

If I'm going on a hike, my two and a half pounds of D800e and lens is going with me.  About a pound more than the Oly rig.  Big tripod, too, and maybe a pano head.  It's worth it!
