Chrisp63, so you plan to keep your 50mm f2 and E-510 or sell everything to invest in Nikon? I agree that Olympus has a negligible commitment to DSLRs. Personally, that doesn't put me off because I think it's a great time to be a dual system user. For me, DSLR and mirrorless are perfect companions, but my hope is that Olympus will be able to meld the two. They have said over and over again, that there will be a body for the great 4/3rds lenses. I take that to mean that it will focus them, but not necessarily that it will be a DSLR with optical viewfinder. Translucent or new mirrorless technology that improves C-AF... it's all good so I'm biding time.

If you plan to keep your 4/3rds system for macro have you considered an E-620, E-30, or E-3 upgrade? The tilt-swivel screen is great for macro and the cost for these bodies is ridiculously low. There are good macro lenses in Nikon mount though, and it really sounds like you want to change, so I have nothing to urge on that point.

Best,

Seth
