An interesting article over at ePHOTOzine by photographer brian1208 who has finally switched from his Canon D60 DSLR to the Olympus OM-D E-M5. The main reason it seems is weight, since the OM-D plus 4 lenses are easily 3x lighter than the corresponding Canon system. I wonder how many other photographers are making similar choices, replacing their traditional mirrored DSLR with an equivalent compact and lighter mirrorless DSLR. Give us a shout if you are planning to do so or have already done so, stating your reasons.
Canon EOS 5D Mk2 + 17-55mm L IS + 24-105mm L IS + 100mm L IS macro + 70-300mm L IS = 3.8kg
Olympus OM-D EM-5 + 9-18mm + 12-50mm + 45mm f1.8 + 75-300mm = 1.24 kg
