Re: Nikon D800 or Oly OM-D?

That would have been me and I repeat the question; do you seriously think that you can carry an equivilant Nikon DX kit to an m43 kit and keep them the same weight? And as far as the 30lbs weight is concerned; a large pack (LP Vertex 300 weighs in at just over 10lbs empty), add a D300 (as its weather sealed) and a selection of fast glass (say 14-150), a tripod and some overnight gear and weigh it and come back.

Whether you like it or not, there are substantial weight saving to be made in m43 and you'll be pixel peeping to see any quality difference. Why do you think a lot of Canikon users are either switching or picking m43 as a travel setup?
