In closing

It is clear this thread has struck a chord with people. There were lots of responses, and they helped me refine things a bit. I believe my general logic was on target for what I was trying to achieve. My choices would certainly have been different if I needed a higher level of performance, and had the budget to do so.

My thread may have seemed to be about the "goodness" of Olympus Four Thirds cameras and lenses, but it was really meant to highlight the general competence of many "non-current" D-SLR camera systems going back 3-4 years, and the significant savings still available when purchasing them.

The way things are going in the camera market, if we aren't careful, there will be inexpensive camera phones and integrated lens cameras at one end, and super expensive full frame cameras with replaceable lenses on the other, with nothing in the middle for the rest of us. It would be a shame if that happened. I saw a similar process occur in the audio market. It wasn't pretty.

Thanks to everyone who responded. it was greatly appreciated.
