Re: How can Oly EM-1 compete when FF DSLR with L zoom goes for $2300?

m4/3 is successful as a 2nd system. I am a member of a prominent camera club in the Philippines and while most shoot with Canikon ( as expected ), almost half also own the Olympus EM-5 or E-P3. So if you think of it, there are more Olympus shooter than either Canon or Nikon in our club. I admit that most members are rich and can afford to maintain dual system.

One area where FF DSLR with pro glass can't compete with m4/3 is weight. m4/3  put fun back to photography. I carry my E-PL2 with mzd 9-18, 40-150, 17 plus the samyang fisheye and walk along the beach for 4 hours with only short rest. Another photographer has the D3S, 24-70 2.8 and Lee filter system ensemble plus I don't know what other gear he has inside his lowepro back pack but he went back to his cottage after less than 2 hours. Tired probably.

Regards,

Alfred
