Re: Micro 4/3 lenses vs canon lenses

Not about the lenses, but about which camera to keep:

My advice is to base that decission on your use of the camera: will you be carrying it along a lot, and taking pictures of your family keep the olympus. If you photograph moving subjects keep the canon. Read about the difference between CDAF and PDAF sensors, feel the weight of the cameras and imaging taking them along for the time you think you will be carrying them.

When I upgraded from a p&s the factor that was most important to me was the weight (small children, always taking a daiperbag etc along, so not to much extra weight) and available lenses (what use is a ILC if you only use the kit lens?) hence mft for me.
