Re: D3300 = 490 grams vs EM1 = 497 grams

If only someone had pointed this out to me sooner. When I bought my EM1 the first thing I asked the guy in the shop was do you have any cameras which weigh 490g? He said no, but the EM1 was 497g, and might be a good fit for my needs. He started prattling on about things like Weather sealing, control layouts, PD focusing with 43 lens and all that crap, but to be honest that is not important to me, all I really wanted was a camera that weighed 490g, but I had to settle for 497g!

Why oh why oh why could you not have given me this wisdom sooner? You should seriously get your own newspaper or something with such brilliant insights and masterful comparisons.
