The suggestion that this is unwise only holds true for those who believe (as so many do) that the latest is the greatest by the very fact of it being the latest/newest.

If that was the case, I would still be using my 4/3 gear. Unfortunately, even the newer OMD has IQ much better than any 4/3 body.

Last fall I got a D7000 to replace my 4/3 gear and low and behold something "later/greater" has come out. I have no intention on buying a D7100 as the difference isn't enough to see in my use. But the difference between the sensor in a D7000 and any 4/3 body is huge >in my use<. Don't assume anyone who switched from the abandoned 4/3 system did so simply because they saw some new and shiny.

If you shoot in good light and/or can keep the iso settings low, an older 4/3 body works fine. But please don't pretend in the last 5 years there has been no real improvement in sensor technology. I did keep my 4/3 stuff in hopes that they will release something the glass will work on but that has yet to be seen if and what it will be.

Unless of course you own the wonderful Olympus 2.0 lenses!!!

Sorry but 1 stop of lens doesn't = 3-4 stops in sensor improvement + not every shot looks good shot at F2.0.
