I use it for my photography, family, vacation. The less shutter lag/dof control/larger flash/lenses choice which slr's have vs point and shoot are primary reasons. Would an OMD EM-5 be smaller than my Sony A33 or other dlsr? Not when you have to find a spot for it at a crowded table in a restaurant. Yes EM-5 and lenses are less size and weight to carry than other dslr's, but it still doesn't fit in a pants pocket. I do use a flat p&s for that and don't expect outstanding photos, just expect the picture is ok.

Honestly though I'm not one who has to have a camera all the time everywhere. On vacation or events I only photograph about third of the time. The rest is sightseeing w/o camera. Ending up with over 4000+ photos to go through when back from vacation? Just shoot me!
