This makes for a great story line

I did exactly the same thing you did, only 18 months ago. Sold my Nikon D2x and 16 lenses and used the proceeds to get into M4/3, initially with the Olympus E-M5, and when they became available in October, the E-M1 and the 12-40mm. I have absolutely no regrets and only look forward. Actually, although a long time Nikon fan (1967 - 2008), I never think about those days anymore. I'm completely involved with my E-M1, and I'm having more fun than I ever did during my Nikon SLR days, even though I took millions of pictures with my Nikon systems over the decades.

1967-2008: This is the kind of story Nikon will pay to suppress. Forty years with their product and no regrets about dumping them. Dumping Nikon is more than dropping a brand, it is dropping a legend that has become a burden: introduced in 1959 "Nikon's F-series SLRs were the most widely used small-format cameras among professional photographers" for thirty years. They've lived on that reputation, but the legend became a burden when they started producing these rather unimaginative DSLR monsters. Maybe we are finally at the beginning of the end of their dominance.
