ramblinr sold all of her canon gear to fund her m43 addiction :-) I won't go that far yet... But I am close. I will keep the 7D for certain applications. But I just have to say that the best camera is the one you have with you and the OM-D is almost always with me. I can put it in my purse and almost forget I have it. I can sling the camera over my shoulder and have 3 lenses in my purse and not really know they are even there. You certainly can't say that about the 7D.
I'm telling you, the OM-D is outstanding. You do have to use a different mindset when you are out but it suits me and I find I am more of a participant instead of a photographer. Hard to explain but I'm loving it.
Yes, Slickchick is correct.
Initially sold: Canon 60d, 15-85, 10-22, 60 macro, 430ex, 580ex, 580exII, ST-E2, 1.4x converter and was left with a small Canon kit of 7d, 17-55, 70-200, 580exII flash.
The small leftover canon kit is currently pending sale, was fortunate that someone will be taking the lot. It's a great kit and they will love it.
Made the huge mistake of playing with and EM5 when getting some photos printed ... just loved it.
I much prefer the small size of the EM5 and the lenses are amazing with more to come. After using the EM5 for a while I find I just couldn't be bothered picking up the 7d and the heavy lenses.
Everyone has different needs and I think the EM5 will be perfect for my shooting style.
If you are looking for interchangeable lenses on a small system do look at the m4/3 range, you may be surprised.
