Re: Dilemma: A99 vs new Olympus E-M1

Well my typical A77 outfit consists of 11-18 zoom, 16-80 CZ, 70-300G and 500mm mirror.  These all fit in a Lowepro back pack type bag and I just take them everywhere and say hang the weight.

I just put up with it.  Goes as carry-on on flights.  The wife hates it because she has to carry-on anything else required!

Just added a macro lens that is heavy but that fits in the bag as well so that will be coming along with the rest.

Saw the OM-D the yesterday in a camera shop window.  First time I saw one and the thing is tiny.  Maybe too small.  No idea how the E-M1 compares size wise to that but there is nothing wring with aiming for a lightweight set up but once you have a full-size outfit you just carry it - well I do!
