Re: Also, do not forget the lenses.

My view is that µ4/3 lenses are across the board very sharp wide open, whereas all of my Canon primes are mostly soft wide open, at an often higher price. I have no idea what you are talking about. Full frame bodies and lenses are for the very rich and the very strong..... or the press.

Case in point. My Canon 85 f1.8 $369 (portrait lens) had to be replaced by Canon 85 1.2L. at 5 times the cost $2000.

Whereas the Olympus 45 1.8 at comparable price to the f1.8 Canon is sharp wide open and performs almost like the expensive L lens.

And lets not even talk about calibrating lenses or the difference between CDAF and PDAF where the number of in focus "keepers" is heavily in favor of µ4/3. Talk about cost.... get a grip on reality!

Thank you Great input from a real user. The "calibrating lenses" bit has kept me away from DSLR's.

The 45 is a great lens for a small price.
