Well I finally bought my first Micro Four-Thirds camera and I’m now officially in the process of converting from Nikon Full-Frame to M4/3.
Funny how things work out though. I had decided to buy a Lumix GX85 and was waiting for it to become available when I found a fantastic deal on a slightly used Olympus E-M1. For less than half the current list price I got a top-end camera and saved myself enough to buy one or two extra lenses. I should have the camera in a few days and I’m really looking forward to it.
You can see the significance of the change in the following pictures, both shown with a 24-70mm f/2.8 equivalent zoom for full effect.
Funnily enough shortly after buying the camera I found this little video that uses humour to demonstrate the beauty of the M4/3 system by showing two photographers out in the field. One with a Nikon FF and the Nikkor trinity of f/2.8 pro zooms (the exact type of setup I’m moving away from because of it’s bulk and weight). The other with an Olympus E-M1.
