Re: GH2 vs Sony Alpha 55 -- Had both returned A55

I think I'm following this. I had Canon APS-c from D30, 60, 10D and my last was 20D when I moved to FF with the 5D. I used basically the same lenses, the huge, heavy 4-70L, 70-200L, fast primes, 45 TS, when it came out Sigma 12-24 with other WA as they were available. Only lens I had for APS-c was the 10-22 which wasn't available until maybe the 20D--long time in coming. I owned a Rebel too on my quest for a "smaller" kit but putting same lenses with it I saved little and then the m4/3 arrived 2 years ago and I find myself choosing to carry either the G1 or GF1 and leaving the Canon at home. Compromises yes, but i doubt whether I will consider continuing down the FF road. The bodies may save some but if you add conventional lenses its not enough to mean much if size/weight matters.
