I know this question pops up once a while. But since now I got to the point where I am comfortable enough to build a system on m4/3 (somehow I wasn't comfortable when I owned the Sony Nex-5N), I find myself reaching for the DSLR less and less. I have built my Canon system for many years, it is my workhorse and gives me total control in image quality and operations.

I think it would be interesting to know what other system do other m4/3?

For me, I have a small, medium and large camera.

Small - In my briefcase everyday

Sony RX-100

Fuji F770EXR

Panny GF3

X Vario PZ 14-42 pancake

X Vario PZ 45-175

Medium - If I don't want to lug the DSLR (eg. social events, vacation)

OM-D (used to be Sony Nex-5N)

G5, GH2, GX1

O 17mm f1.8 (for environmental portraits)

45mm 1.8

19mm 2.8

30mm 2.8

P 12-35 f2.8 (for general purpose)

O 75mm f1.8 (for portraits)

(Hoping to have a quality super-tele lens soon for birding)



Large - If performance/image quality is priority (eg. wedding, birding, studio)


Dumped all my large gear. I get sufficient performance / image quality from the G5  et al.

TS 24mm f3.5L II (extraodinary TS lens for interior shoots and architecture. But rarely used)

35 f1.4L (for environmental portraits, social gatherings eg. baby shower)

85 f1.2L (for portraits, especailly wedding)

100 f2.8L (for macro. This lens doubles up as portraits. So hiking is good)

16-35 2.8L (for party and landscape requiring ultra wide angle)

24-105 f4L (for general travel. It's quite good for portrait as well. Really good for traveling)

70-200 f2.8L IS (for portraits and must-have lens for wedding)

100-400 L (when I want to travel light in wildlife/birding)

500 f4L (must have lens for birding (or sport that I rarely do))

EX580 flashes / softbox - for studios and outdoor lighting (may upgrade to EX600RT)

2x SB26 flash
