Right on, Art

As for Zen's silly statement about the only people complaining about the weight of the FF systems -- I was one of the earliest into the Olympus OM system back in he day, moving down from the Mamiya twin lens 6x6 system.

One of the big reasons for choosing the OM1 and its lenses was lightness and portability. Back then, Nikon and Canon users., startled by the smallness and lightness of the Oly OMs, sneered at them.

They had to sneer on the other side of their faces when Nikon and Canon scrambled to follow suit, downsizing their cameras to smaller, lighter, sleeker packages.

There's no percentage in weight and bloat -- and that's what too many DSLRs sugger from.

Cheers, geoff
