Re: Portability v Quality are we obsessed by size?

I shoot with a 1dsmk2 and (just purchased a used 5dmk2) and also shoot with a OMD5. There is NO lack of AF speed in S-AF with the OMD5 but C-AF/focus tracking is next to useless! I don`t think you will complain of the OMD5`s IQ to iso 800, Get the Olympus 45mmf1.8 (very sharp lens) and you will have some control over the DOF/subject isolation....even more so with the 75mm f1.8. The one thing that stands out is the OMD`s Image stabilization...very ,very good with any lens you adapt to the OMD...amazing.The EVF is very good for manual focusing legacy lenses and the camera has very good build quality and is small

But anything that moves faster than a slow walk you will need a DSLR
