Re: Be careful if you get the latest M4/3 gear

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.

My interest in the 4/3 and/or Nikon 1 is for a lightweight compact walkabout camera.  I really like the 18-200 on my D300 but it's big & heavy.  On our upcoming vacation I'll be carrying a 7 month old (almost 10kg) on my back.  I did that once before with my first child, with a Canon Digital Rebel and it was do-able but this time I have not only the baby but 2 other kids to keep up with. Plus I'm older.

If you've to take care of 2 kids & a baby, better bring along a RX100II.
