I currently have a Nikon D300 with various fast glass (85 1.4, 50 1.4, 70-200 2.8, 17-55 2.8). I will keep this setup but looking to go smaller/lighter and gain a little better high ISO performace.

I typically shoot portrait in studio (probably still use D300) and sports action (tennis, vball).

Looking at Olympus OM-D and Sony NEX-5N

Would appreciate comments about Olympus vs Sony along with D300 vs either of these....Thanks.

For the two mirrorless system you are thinking about I would go with the E-M5 because of the lenses available for mft. For sports the only mirrorless that is really good is the Nikon System 1, which seems to be equal to their high end dslr for C-AF.

Even in this respect the Nikon1 is dissapointing - I tried it with the 30-110 and by the time the hunting for focus was ended, usually the motive was gone. - Peter.
