Yes, they are big cameras, but with the constant apeture pro zoom lens they are (probably) the only lenses you will ever need. The DOF equivalent on, say, the new Tamron 2.8 24-70 will never happen on m4/3, since it would require an aperture of 1.4 throughout the zoom range, thats never going to happen!

I suppose its just a shame there is no a 2.8 constant zoom lens that extends to around 85mm on FF that allows for good portraits. 70 is too short.

If you need to be able to shot anything without any excuses, with the highest quality, in competition with other photographers with top level equipment, you go FF.

Auto racing drivers are pros, and in NASCAR they drive "RWD" Taurus. Does that mean people shopping for cars should be looking for RWD Taurus?

Besides, who exactly is a pro? And do they prefer to lug around 500mm lenses for portraits because that is what they might be using to shoot sports? Let us keep pros aside and discuss the merits of each system on their own.
