Hi Raist,

Sorry by the 7D I meant the EOS-5D Mark III. As for 35mm I believe Nikon and Canon have positioned that to be there Pro range. You can buy low range 35mm DSLRs at price points which would have been APS a couple of years back. By-the-way being pedantic 4/3rds is full-frame:)

It doesn't really matter comparing 35mm to 4/3rds. For a budget what are you getting? I got an Oly E-520, Zuiko 14-54mm MK1, Zuiko 40-150mm and an FL-36r OR I could have got a Nikon D90 with a single kit lens bundle. For low-light I had the FL-36r and 28mm f2.8, DOF control 28mm f2.8, 40mm f3.5. If their competitors are spending the camera budget on a 35mm sensor may be Oly should spend the budget on a bigger buffer, more sophisticated AF system, or free battery grips. Bundle an E-7 with the Zuiko 14-35 f2 zoom, Zuiko 50-200mm F2.8 and Fl-600. Offer the above choice against an EOS-5D Mark 3 with a single f2.8 Zoom.

Thanks

Haider
