Hi everyone. Sorry if this seems a little off topic but your the people that directly fit my question.

I now have a medical issue with the nerves in my middle fingers of my left hand (due to broken fingers years ago). I have major problems using lenses much bigger than a 50mm (gutted). My doctor warned me ages ago that this would become an issue and advised me to downsize the weight and bulk of my camera gear. Yesterday I was taking images of a restaurant for a website, and after the tripod work I struggled to take handheld shots with the D800 + 105DC.

That seemed a good place to stop.

If you appreciate what you get from a D800 and a 105DC, you are not going to be happy with any micro four thirds that I'm familiar with.

Take a long, serious look at a Pentax system. Their 77mm f1.8 is a favorite of mine, and the 31mm f1.8 is possibly the best APS normal I've ever used.
