You do realize that prodigal means wasteful and irresponsible? It would seem that you are neither, from your approach:)

The fact that the prodigal son returned home later is coincidental to his fiscal recklessness....

Very true, and I never even ventured near the hog pen (Nikon land)...:lol:

I am very familiar with the parable of the Prodigal. One of the great pieces of literature in world history IMHO and poignant even today.

(I am scheduled to visit your neck of the woods later this month (eg Cali-for-ni-aye) with camera in tow.)

Regards.

Welcome back Ozimax, and thanks for sharing your thoughts around your move to the OMD.

Many thanks!

I've been using a Fuji X10 for the past 14 months or so - it has been a much more constant companion than my DSLR and provides excellent results for what it is, an advanced point + shoot. In good light and with proper exposure the files look great, and they print well too. Fuji has great color.

A sensational camera. I've owned two of them and the Fuji jpg's are so good.

Secondly, I'm skeptical that I'm not simply lusting after the camera and trying to rationalize it. Would I really carry an OMD kit more than my Canon kit? If it is smaller and lighter, but still requires a bag and carrying multiple lenses/accessories I'm not sure it would truly get more use than my FF setup - which would defeat the main purpose for me - carrying it with me more, and taking more pictures.

This is the main point for me too. There's still some heft/weight with a full M43 system, so might as well use the FF setup and carry the X10 when lightweight is needed.

Precisely why I can't justify it. If I'm carrying a body + lenses, requiring a bag, I can manage my FF + some smaller lenses, and when that's too much the x10 provides the compact package. This way I don't need to worry about losing quality either.

Yes - I recently printed a hardcover photobook of family shots from my daughters first year - the x10 shots fared well against the FF shots, as long as you keep perspective that the images were from a P+S.

It all comes back to image quality, doesn't it?

Every time I get the desire for something smaller and more portable, I get out my wife's SX260HS and try some ISO 800 shots, or chase my 3-year old grandson around the house with it. That usually sends me back to my 60D with a strong appreciation for 0.059s shutter lag and the noise profile of an APS-c sensor. Sometimes I would like an un-gripped Rebel, but it really isn't that much smaller, and I still need lenses.

This is an interesting comment. If you are interested in a smaller camera with image quality comparable or better to your 60D, why would you test a p&s with a tiny sensor for "comparison"?

The E-M5 sensor is superior to the 60D's sensor. Noise is probably better controlled overall, especially in shadow areas. Shutter lag is similar. Single shot autofocus speed and accuracy is excellent. On the other hand, continous AF tracking is definitely a weakness.

The E-M5 is a great option if you want a small(er) camera with high image quality and a great lens selection. It is not a replacement for my full frame kit, but there are no Canon APS-C cameras that would tempt me to give up the Olympus at this point.
