Re: Thinking of selling my D800 and going to a four thirds system
In reply to gary stepic, 9 months ago

I just picked up a GX7 + kit lens + 20/1.7 to replace my GH2.  The kit lens will go to the family G5 and the 20/1.7 for the GX7.

I have a D800 and large collection of FX zooms and primes.

The D800 will be for landscape, high DR, and low light use or when size/weight don't matter.

The GX7 will be for times when IQ is secondary and size/weight are paramount.

I currently have a GH2, G5, 14-45, 12-35/2.8 and 75/1.8.

Due to how good m43 has become (both in bodies, lenses, and sensor IQ) I am going to pare down my FX glass to primes + 1 zoom and build up the m43 line.

There is a place for both in a photographer's closet if you can afford it.
