So you are going to buy a Nikon D800 tomorrow!?

No, because despite your statement, you want to stick with Olympus for nostalgic reasons.  Just like people who drive around in cars from the 1960's ("they don't build 'em like that anymore!"), or people who still buy LPs. Or like the Chevy people who hate Ford and visa-versa.

No, not at all - you misunderstand. My f-mount lenses (yes, I shoot Nikon!) are used on film only. Nikon has so very few lenses that can compare to the Zuiko Digital SHG lenses (some would say "none") and I am not only heavily invested in the Olympus system, but also completely spoilt by the qualities of these lenses.

Ah yes, there is nothing like the sound of a tube amplifer and a phonograph.  Digital CDs can't compete....the good old days.

btw, Oly makes superb lenses.  To get the most out of them you need an E-PM2, PL5 or E-M5.
