Why do we keep going here?  Some of us like DX, FF, and m 4/3 and that is great.  We have made our choice, and most don't want to keep having to spend more money on lens , flash units etc.  I used to get really upset with Nikon as they upgraded their system, but I still went along and bought more stuff.  Things like when they came out with light meters, yes we used to hand hold a light meter to get a correct reading.  Then the changed all of their lens to auto focus, and yes we old guys and gals used to always manual focus as that was all there was.  For me, I used SLR, DSLR cameras for years, but then one day I just got tired of carrying around 2 bodies and 5 lens and picked up the m 4/3 system cameras.  Do I want to go back to what I used to own?  No.

Gawd, I wish I had written that. Exactly.

Do I care what you use? No.  Buy what ever you plan to use and stick with it.

Well, no, I am interested in what others use to get the results that they do. I'm pretty omnivorous (for want of a better word) as a photographer, covering everything. I know that some of what I do is a compromise with my E-PL3 and limited suite of accessories so I like to hear about alternatives just in case I have to mo e seriously into a particular area of photography at some time.

You are never going to get out of a camera what it can really produce, if you flick from one to another camera or system.  That was the great thing about film.  They came out with the next great thing about every 10 years.  Sometimes you actually wore a camera out.

That's true. Those damned OM-1s. I desperately wanted to wear them out to I would have an excuse to move to Om-2. Rotten things just kept keeping on despite amountain of hard work and abuseā€¦

They were equipment rather being consumer items as even the best cameras are now.

Cheers, geoff
