Re: D800? Total Overkill!

exactly m43 requires an obnoxiously long lens to get any amount of bokey on a full body portrait and it still doesn't do as much as nifty fifty will. m43 makes a cool toy but you want to say shoot portraits especially full body and these little camera are at best a pain in the but and at worst cant do it. D800 shoots absolutley fine pictures handheld. infact know what your doing and focus properly you can get pixel level sharpness. the d800 pixel pitch is less than the omd so it actually demands less sharpness from the lens while still taking a sharper picture. Also consider any other nikon dslr. For shooting portrait they are ALL better than an omd
