Great article. At this time, I use my pro gear for paid jobs, SL1 or EOS M for fun & family. The SL1 is really a gem for macro and I have a photo from it that I am entering in competition this year. The M I haven't had enough time to judge, but it annoys me early on because it is just not as fast as an slr.
I keep telling myself that I'm not spending regular income, just what I bring in from photo gigs. I should sell some of the lenses - the zooms! But I really love the 70-200.... Four bodies? Two for work, one for fun and one for my purse. That's normal, right?
I love my Elinchrom D-Lie-it 4 Kit and will be using it for a shoot tomorrow :-)
I am an enthusiast who chose to acquire the E-PM1 and I have been very pleased with it. I use my 5dii and t2i for paid jobs and planned shoots, but the size of the E-PM1 allows me to throw it in my purse or computer bag and take it everywhere. I initially thought I would purchase the E-P3, but once I learned that the Super Control Panel could be enabled and that all of the guts are the same as the E-P3, it was easy for me to decide on the E-PM1. I am a former E-P1 owner and already felt comfortable using the SCP instead of physical buttons. Since I was able to save $400. versus the E-P3, I think I'll buy a new lens ;-)
