If you get something like the OM-D, E-PL5, E-P5 or GH3, don't be surprised if you rarely use your D300 anymore.

My main interest for the D300 is for portraits and the thin depth of field. The 4/3 & Nikon 1 cameras can't compete there. The 85 1.4 is my main lens for the D300 and I think it's unbeatable. I love focusing on the eyes and having the ears and hair out of focus.

You mean like this?

I hear you though.  85/1.4 on a larger sensor is razor thin, and it can be hard to replicate.
