My move from Nikon Full Frame to Olympus M43

May 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

After a few months of living here in Japan, I decided that my photography gear were too heavy to bring along for daily use. I use to shoot with Nikon Full frame gear for 3 years before I came to Japan. Even though I love my Nikon gear very much I had to let it go to make way for my new system of choice, the micro 4/3, specifically the Olympus system. 

I let go of all my Nikon gear and acquired a modest micro 4/3 starting kit.

  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 Silver,
  • Olympus 17mm f/1.8
  • Olympus 75mm f/1.8
  • Olympus 12-50mm f/3.5-6.7 Kit lens
  • Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 Super telephoto lens
  • Gariz leather sleeve for the E-M5

Also, the size difference was staggering, from a DSLR gear of about 3 kilograms down to only about a kilo for the micro 4/3 setup. Since the micro 4/3 system have very good prime lenses, I am slowly becoming a prime convert... the quality of the Olympus prime lenses are superb, and sharp too. 

It may not be for everyone but for anyone looking for a good light very capable set up, a nice m4/3 kit is really all you need.
