Re: OM-D review after extensive use while traveling

Now that's what I'm talking about. Take your dslr kit (I used to do) and you can do fantastic things but the camera and stuff is going to decide on some stuff. With m43 the camera just was there all the time but small and light and even with good glass but I could remain doing where I came for: travel. I did rock climbing, speedboats, rainforest, bear watching, whale watching, etc.. So very active things. I never would have done all of that when I got a dslr kit with decent glass. It would become a burden. Not with m43 and that was the main reason to switch and I still am happy with my results.

At the end of the month I am going to Vancouver for a week. My wife has a three day conference there and I am just tagging along. I don't know if we will make it to the Island. I am undecided on taking the E-M5 and related gear or my useral dslr kit. Your review makes me thinking again about taking the mft gear on my upcoming trip.
