Lovely pictures, every one of them.

Thanks.

But there is nothing there could not have been taken with a smaller camera.

I don't think you know what you're looking at.

1, 180mm, f/2.8, ISO 800

2, 160mm, f/2.8, servo AF

3, 150mm, f/2.8, servo AF

4, ISO 1600

5 & 6, 35mm f/1.4

7, ISO 3200, servo AF

8, 17mm.

That camera may not precisely exist right now, but they are coming. Already cameras like the Panny G3 and Olympus OM-D are getting very, very close and they are much, much smaller than a FF or APSH Canon.

You're not getting any of those pictures on m4/3, sorry.
