Just one more point.

So many people compare this to APS-C or even FF cameras and say that they are almost as small.

Maybe. Prolly heavier though.

That aside, do not forget the weight of the glass that goes on the front and must be carried about (or the physical size of it either!).

In case some readers are not owners of 'big' DSLRS and have yet to get bad backs, let me just share some numbers from my Nikon bag....

14-24 f2.8                1 kilo

24-70 f2.8                 0.9 kilo

70-200 f2.8               1.6 kilo

24 f1.4                     0.62 kilo

So a 4 lens kit with NO BODIES weighs almost 4.5 kg.

So it's all very well to say that an bigger DSLR is almost the same size etc but that's only part of the story as to why the M43 option is better in at least one very important way if you have to carry your gear around the world or even out into your own locality.
