what moved me to m4/3 was wrist damage. i need a lighter camera / lens solution. here's some figures to consider if you, too, are concerned with having a lighter camera.

camera weights plus budget zoom lens

Nikon D3300 Weight (inc. batteries) 15.17 oz + lower priced 55-200 zoom 9 oz = 24.17 oz
Nikon D3300 Weight (inc. batteries) 15.17 oz + step up 55-200 zoom 11.8 oz = 26.97 oz

Canon SL1 weight (inc. batteries) 14.36 oz + 55 - 250 lens 13.23 oz = 27.59 oz
(longest focal range of any lens of those i'm comparing)

Panasonic GX7 14.18 oz + 45-200 zoom lens 13.4 oz = 27.8 oz

Panasonic G6 11.99 oz + 45-200 zoom lens 13.4 oz =25.39 oz

NEX6 10.1 oz + 55-210 zoom lens 12.1 oz = 22.2 oz total
