Re: I take it you are aware...

DSLR and m4/3 cameras each have their advantages. It's up to the individual to decide what's most important to him/her. I was considering a m4/3 system to save weight as I got older and feebler, but to me the difference in size and weight between a m4/3 and the Nikon D3100 that I bought wasn't that great. The Olympus system (camera and 3 lenses) that I was considering would have saved about 2 pounds compared to the comparable Nikon system. I may be old and feeble, but 2 pounds wasn't enough to get me away from the Nikon system that I preferred for other reasons.

I just replaced the D3100 with a D5200 as my main camera. The D5200 weighs 2 or 3 ounces more than the D3100. That's still not enough to make the switch. Someday maybe a couple of pounds difference in weight may push me into a m4/3 system. Just not yet, but it's nice to have the choice.
