Nikon FF user but liking the m4/3 system

I'm a Nikon D700 FF user and my most frequently used lens is the 24-70 f2.8. It gives great results and its got a great OVF, but its big and heavy especially when you add all the other bits and pieces to you bag.

I purchased a M4/3 camera first the GF1 and now the G3 to use as a time lapse camera and I'm loving it. Here is a short timelapse film I made with the G3.

Am using the G3 more and more (not just for timelapse) and just got the new 12-35 f2.8 lens. I did a comparison shot D700 against G3 and printed them up to A3 size. Although the D700 print had the edge I was really impressed with the G3 print and it was more than acceptable for mounting and display at my Club. I have put several of my Nikon lenses on e-bay for sale but have not yet made the decision to sell the D700 and 24-70 lens, but I'm close to making that decision.
