Default Got a new camera

I sold all my full sized DSLRs (a900, a77, a700) to go smaller and lighter (Sony NEX-6). You'll be amazed at how well these small cameras perform. Anybody else with camera gear?

My current kit is the Canon 5D Mark III backed up by the 5D Mark II.



Then a couple of Einsteins, an AB 1600, and ABR800 ring flash for lighting (and a 580 EX II Speedlite for utility use).

I want the Olympus OM-D, but I'm not in the position to spend $1K on the body and another $1200 or so on the two lenses I want for that system. Especially since I'm not going to sell my Canon gear for micro four-thirds. I want the OM-D as a supplementary camera.

I am a Nikon shooter myself.

ocabj, it looks like you have some serious gear. I can't tell what kind of glass you have, but the dual body set-up is pretty solid.

Your web site has some real nice work. The self portrait of you is sweet. Do you do this full time or for fun?

I agree. The stuff they had a few years back just wasn't cutting it. I think their starting to listen to their customers more. I have read that their getting the attention of professionals more and more.

I do it on the side for 'fun'. I license out photos on occasion and do a paid shoot here and there. Plus, I shoot my own stock for my blog since I don't want to deal with re-using someone else's photos.
