Re: There is really only one reason to choose a compact DSLR

Very interesting... Except for your description, I don't really even know what Live View is ... but I will find out.

The only reason I am looking at a 4/3 camera is because of the small size and the high rating a reviewer on staff of this website gave to the OMD.

Do you really think the quality of pictures in the OMD will be as good as a DSLR?

(If I go the 4/3 route I will wait a while to buy because it sounds like some new products might be coming out soon).

Too many variables.

Which DSLR

Which lenses

What type of photography.

An OM-D with good glass will scare the hell out of a good DSLR with bad glass.

A good DSLR with high end glass will probably give better IQ than the OM-D with good glass.'s gear's gear list
