Re: m4/3 not allowed on Lower Antelope Canyon photo tour

I did a Lower Antelope photographer's tour with my EM5 (and got some wonderful photos, without even needing a tripod despite all the talk about one being essential). My guess is that all they mean by "SLR" is "a serious-looking camera, not a point and shoot", because the snap shooters are better off on the general tours rather than the special photographic ones that accommodate tripod users and moving more slowly. The guide had to tell some of the other participants how to get their big new SLRs out of "green rectangle" full auto mode.

And of course, there is no need for a DSLR's phase detect autofocus; the rocks are not moving very fast, and controlling exposure to handle the sometimes very high subject brightness range is the main technical challenge.

Smaller lenses, better in low light, more telephoto reach:
you can have any *two* at one time.
