Re: Proffessional interest in Mirrorless/M43 overstated...

I just went to CES in Vegas, I live here, and Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic and Ricoh all had booths.

I have a complete Nikon system of lenses and a modern D7100 yet, I chose Oly EP-5 and 17mm, 45mm and 25mm Pany.

Reason, it all fit easily in my photovest.  You can do a lot with these fast lenses indoors with IBIS and I don't care to look like a Pro, I wanted to have light gear that is easy to use and takes good 16mp pictures.  Anyone with a D700 or D3 got great shots with 12mp.

My D7100 would have been great with my 11-16mm f2.8 Tokina a fast 24mm and my fast f1.4 58mm.

A lot more weight, and only a bit better IQ.  The 11-16mm would have been great for UWA but honestly the 17mm was fast and wide enough.
