Re: I got tired of the heavy DSLR and enjoy my new Olympus Pen very much

As a matter of fact, my... style (read lazyness) does not get along with dsrl size for street and general photography. More than once I brought the d70 on a vacation or business trip but ended up taking no pictures at all. Things go much better with the Pana lx3, of course, due to the small size and the discrete impression on people. Things are different when I take pictures on a semi-pro assignment where I can hold the camera for the whole time, I can leave the bag somewhere safe, I can use Nikon CLS and all that. I think I'll test how Oly flash system works and, if too far away from Nikon one, I'll keep the 2 systems. Unless Oly/Pana come out with some hybrid professional m43 system, we'll see

Thanks for replying

I would definitely go the 4/3 system, unless you are a pro shooter then I don't really see need for burdening myself with the heavy duty equipment of DSLRs
