Although I value the image critiques, this post was meant to show that the m43 option is viable for this type of work. The 8x10s were every bit as sharp and detailed as anything I have created with my Nikon d700. This kit was very compact. It all fit in a small shoulder bag including the body (+ backup GH2), lenses, two speedlights, two collapsible umbrellas and a Bogen Superclamp. I hand carried one lightstand. Lighting was clamshell using the speedlights (Nikon SB900s - no modeling lamps). Ambient was next to nil in a darkened theater. Still, the E-M5 had no problems focusing.

Had I used the Nikon gear (with backups), I would have been toting a roller case. Guess that's my real point!
