First time posting and simply want to share candidly without any attempt to convince anyone of my beliefs or opinions.
I've been a professional photographer for over 35 years and was originally a Nikon user back in the days of the F2/F3/F4S. With the advent of auto-focus, I tried the EOS 1 system and immediately sold my Nikon gear, lenses...everything. Since that time, I have been a die-hard Canon EOS, 5D/7D user and most recently, the Sony NEX 7.
I will purchase this new Olympus OM-D E-M1 for the following reasons:
1. I've always had great respect for M. Zuiko lenses. Truly great optics.2. Although I like the physical size and portability of the Nex 7, I miss the ergonomic feel and familiarity of shooting with an slr type camera. I also now understand that it's not just about the megapixel count, but also about the optics (Zuiko)3. The E-M1 appears to be a well built camera and simply (imho) the best designed dslr camera I have ever seen. Can't wait to get my hands on one!
