I'm a New Convert

To the Church of Micro 4/3 - Olympus sect!

I have used my beloved Nikon D200 for over 3 years and we had a really good time together. I always made offerings to the Church of Nikon F-mount but lately I've been brainwashed by compact system missionaries - Micro four thirds.

There are pros and cons of both DSLR and μ4/3 systems. 
What I really appreciate in the μ4/3 system is relatively cheaper offerings of the lenses. However, the quality of the lenses is outstanding. Sure, it's very light weight and no mirror shock occurs while shooting.

Now I have "faith" in Olympus OM-D EM-5! This classic film camera-looking silver gadget comes with build-in image stabilization, weather-sealed body, tilting monitor, and 12 art filters.

Note that my first steps into the mirrorless denomination were made with Sigma DP1s two-odd years ago. Now my conversion has been completed!

My beloved wife understands and supports my new religious choice fully. I am a very lucky man. Thank you Mrs T for making this conversion possible! Now you are a Nikon believer (please take good care of the D200), but I am confident that soon you will also see the light, even if yours might turn out to be a Panasonic sect.

F-Mount God bless her.

  1. Enjoy your new gear!! Looking forward to seeing new pics as you experiment.

  2. Congratulations. I took this step a year ago and have no regret whats so ever. Funny thing is that i sometimes use an old nikon or canon lens with adapter and the results are still stunning. Have a good time with your new equipment.

  3. I'm so excited for you! Congrats on your new gear and enjoy the experience.

  4. Muito lindo o teu trabalho! abraços,chica

  5. Yoshi,
    Welcome back! I am very glad to hear from you.
    I am belonging to Canon Sect. While reading your blog, I started to rethink I need the conversion.
    Have a great week!

  6. I am a canonite too... I have dabbled in other sect but none of them seem to make me happy like Canon does.


  7. Lovely post and great photos ~ wonder if your new camera is heavyweight or light? ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^ on Blogger ^_^

  8. I like the classic good looks of that Olympus. Amen!

  9. I would love to have a micro 4/3rd camera. One of these days when it is more affordable since I already invested so much money in my Canon lenses and I get tired of my Canon 60D.
