Re: still torn between m43 and Full Frame systems

Worked out differently for me.

2013 was to be a major upgrade year for me. Though I've been happy with m4/3 since 2008 and regular 4/3 back to 2005, as I started to order a GH3 I realized I would not be fully satisfied until I tried full frame -- even though I knew intellectually I don't need it.

Six months and $4,500 later I know as well as anyone can know that FF is not for me. The difference in image quality is utterly tiny, judged in a print or a finished online image, while the tradeoff in size, weight, cost and general cumbersome handling is huge.

Thank goodness for eBay -- I bought most of the gear used and expect to get back most of my money by the time I get it sold.
