Re: Comparing Olympus 4/3lenses to FX "Full Frame" offerings

You're making it more difficult than it should be. You are now lucky to have access to an amazing new line of Sigma lenses (the Art series seem to be very, very serious contenders), not to mention old proven values from the brand. Not to mention that you are now using a mount everybody and their brother rents lenses for, with which you can complete your assignments.

This is not even counting the exotics such as the CZ, not counting the joys of several minutes long exposures without having to wait for a dark frame to be taken, the joys of an AF which opens new worlds of opportunity...

Be fair - similar gear pricing has never been, and can not be, part of the equation when switching to FF. Whether you need the switch or not is your decision, but once you decide for it - price comparison simply is not fair.

You made a worthy switch. Enjoy your new gear, and be happy. Don't sell it short before you start loving it. You'll have plenty of occasions to criticize it down the line, as nothing is perfect.
