I just want to thank everyone for this thread!!! A few years ago a POTN member told me to think about the M43 systems. Back then they really weren't all that great. The last couple months I've been having much more trouble shooting with my 60D and lenses, then three weeks ago I found this thread and the link to the mu43 forum.
I thought about it a lot and finally last week bought one from adorama (who sent me a very nice "sorry this is out of stock" e-mail, but then 5 hours later must have gotten a shipment since they shipped that same day!
Well I was worried about doing this switch, since it's kind of forced on me due to health. But I must say even with the kit 12-50 lens this OMD is amazing! I've shot over 1000 photos since last thursday night and I put my stuff up for sale. I do worry about missing things I love about the 60D but what I'm gaining vs what I'm losing makes it ok.
Problems so far (may get better as I learn more about it)
-AF seems to pick what it wants. I set it for center point and it'll still look around a bit
-EVF makes me a bit car sick if I'm wobbly or in the car (I shoot when my husband drives when we go on vacations)
-AF in video mode hunts too much
What I really like
-the weight- holy cow what a difference, it was hard for me to hold at first but after a day or two it's great
-easy macro on the kit, macro with the DSLR is tricky for me due to not holding still easily, but with the smaller sensor I have more wiggle room
-can't wait to try the primes if the "crappy zoom" is this good!
-I have it with me every day, so I don't miss any shots!
I can get shots that look like they were taken with my 60D, but it's harder to do it. I'm hoping as the camera gets settled in I'll get it to feel like second nature.
Here is my test page if anyone wants to see
Again thank you to everyone here! I really didn't want to have to go down to a p&s due to my health, I think it may have made me not want to shoot anymore. Now with the OMD I feel like I can keep doing this and be very happy about it! (now I just need to sell my 60D and lenses so I can afford to buy a couple primes!!)
