I have just returned from a photo trip to Nome, Alaska. Everyone on the trip, including the guide, was using Olympus EM-1X and one Panasonic MFT. There was only one guy on the trip still using a huge Nikon body and 600MM lens. In talking with him it seemed the reason he hadn't shifted to MFT was he didn't think he could master the controls. At every photo stop we had to wait for him to remove his tripod and set it up. I felt sorry for him, watching him struggle. I guess I should also mention he was 84 years old. Good photographer also.

The only problem with this story is that proper use of a tripod will achieve better sharpness than not using one, no matter what system you shoot.

The choice to shoot handheld rather than on tripod is always driven by convenience. Just imagine if DPReview chose to shoot their resolution test target handheld... there’d be an outcry of protest.

Maybe the Nikon shooter was the only one on the trip who had the resolve to really maximise the quality of his results? Impressive at 84 years old!
