Is m4/3 IQ (using E-M1) good enough for Weddings?
Oct 10, 2013

Help!  I'm in a position now to completely upgrade my camera equipment.  Right now, I have rather complete Pro-quality (F2.8 or faster) lens systems for Sony/Minolta and Nikon.  I could just pop on a D800 body + backup body, sell the rest & go.  However, I would REALLY like to reduce the Size & Weight of my Kit.  I also think that a lot of my attention has been focused on the Pro-Spec Olympus OMD E-M1 -- which I would want to become my main camera (with a pair of GX7's for video).  I don't need to do Sports, or Landscape or magazine spreads  -- just Weddings.  For Weddings, I don't think I would need to go beyond 11x14, possibly 16x20, for prints.  I do NOT need a hobby-camera; nor do I intend to use my Kit for other than Pro-Weddings.  I am also considering the possibility of augmenting my m4/3 with either a Sony A7, a Nikon D800 or a 5DmkIII for an Upsell (with a small subset of lenses only) for formal group shots and -- at separate events -- for environmental portraiture.

What are your opinions of this approach?  Can the m4/3 give me the IQ required for Pro Wedding work?   My apologies -- if this topic has been covered before.  Thanks ever so much for replies.
