does getting a 4/3 system mean going on a different system from what you currently have? if yes means you cant use your existing lenses and you have to buy new lenses which means no economies of scale.
imo a 1.6x crop factor is not much different from 2x.
Hi there Reportage, i believe cropping dosent involve enlarged pixels unless u cropped a photo and enlarged the cropped area back to its original resolution or to a bigger print size. If thats the case you might want to check out the new High Resolution APS-C cameras as they are already cropped to 1.6x and the resulting 400mm fov would be of higher resolution.
This is true, plus the number of lenses available for 4/3 and especially m4/3 are still limited compared to Canikon. I am moving the normal way, i.e. from m4/3 to Nikon 1.5x cropped and maybe a couple of years from now, to FF.
Dun think there is such a lens in the 4/3 range .....
BUT yes, if teles are what you are interested, then the 4/3 system does gives better value. More compact allowing for better handheld. Compare the 50-200/f2.8-3.5 Zuiko to ANYTHING in the Canikon system and you'll NOT find much equivalent. Esp the IQ for the price.
