Canon just announced 100D. Being 17 grams lighter and a friction bigger than OMD, one may say there is almost no compromise.

That is until you try to match the longer telephoto's on m4/3's. The compromise is still size and weight of many of the lenses. If you shoot only primes then it isn't much of a big deal.

My take is if you have to use telephoto lens, you are serious about what you are shooting, the "size and weight" benefit of m43 drops to the bottom of priority list. YMMV

This is on top of the fact that when you shoot action PDAF is always better than CDAF.

Ahh, so if you use m4/3s you aren't serious about your photography.

Get a clue mate.

What you 5 and can't read? where does it say "f you use m4/3s you aren't serious about your photography"?

Ok, so if you use any of the m4/3s telephotos, then you're not serious about photography.

Wrong again, read one more time see if you can get it. this time take a pill for the camera version of the small man syndrome before attempt.

Ok. Proposition - size and weight decreases in priority, when you're "serious about what you're shooting".

Lets put it this way. If you are very serious about what you are shooting, you use the best gear for the job. size and weight are secondary consideration.

Where you got it wrong is you think "serious about what you are shooting" means the same as "photography". No it does not. m43 users are generally serious about photography that is why they want to have have a good camera even though they do not want extra weight and size - clearly something else is the priority.

Ergo: If you're "serious about what you're shooting" there's better options than m4/3s as size and weight "drops to the bottom of the priority list".

Correct

Ergo: If you're using a lightweight m4/3s system, then you're not "serious about what you're shooting"

That is harsh and is beyond what I was saying. seriousness is a continuum, not merely a yes or no.

How many PJ, architectural photographer, magazine shoots, or wild life pros use M43? they are very serious about their work so they do not use M43.
