Re: Yes! But it depends...

What professional work do you do? Portraits? Architecture? Other? Controlled light or natural light?

Just curious since my wife is a Portrait Pro and would never dream of shooting with mft for that...

That is a wrong assumption based more on stigmas and rumors than on facts. As one who makes money from photography and I can tell you that according to my own experience, i cannot see any problem in using MFT gear for professional jobs. Of course, that depends a lot on what exactly you are doing. For some photography jobs, even a FF camera may not be good enough while for others, a camera such as OMD can be much more suitable than heavy duty gear.

I have been shooting FF dSLR gear for the past 5 years or so and am now in the process of switching to MFT and i am very happy. The more I gain experience and confidence with the format, the less I use my dSLRs and most of it is now going on sale.

Horses for courses of course.

Totally agreed but without an exact definition of the courses, you cannot choose the appropriate horses.
