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.

So how many people were on the trip? You, the guide, and the old guy?

Was it a mostly wildlife trip? On boats or?

Six.

50% - a pretty good average.

True, but in most situations (including the kinds of tourist areas you and I encounter) the prevalence of any mirrorless ILC is going to more like 1% or less, and E-M1Xs more like 0.05%.
