Re: A P&S to replace my 70-200 f/4?

Joe, thank you for such a thorough and interesting reply.  Your description of the OM-5 has piqued my interest.  The Sony RX100's focal length, unfortunately, doesn't go out to anywhere near 200mm.

You pose an excellent question.  I guess I'd consider the 70-200 to be "obsolete" if I found a capable/portable camera that was 90% as good on prints up to 16x20.

As for my 5D + 17-40mm, I won't let go of them until I find an affordable replacement that's "at least 110% as good" in image quality.

P.S., in add'n to the Olympus OM-5, the Fuji X-PRO1 is attractive except that I'm not seeing lenses at 200mm focal length.  And on the MUCH less expensive side, the new Nikon P7700 P&S looks promising with its 28-200 FL.

So many choices but no EASY ones!
