Let's see if we can liven it up a bit then ! Nikon gear won't arrive until Monday when I shall retire to the office with the manual to emerge sometime later ! Could be a steep learning curve I reckon and I've got a job to do next Friday !
Stephen - I've never really been a staunch anything, it has always been more of a case of love the one you're with for me. I bought into the E-system a few years ago when Kyocera stopped developing the Contax brand and it proved to be a dead end. I have never regretted it for a moment and my Olympus kit has always delivered what I needed. The thing is that my needs have changed and I can no longer get what I need from Olympus. Over the last nine months I have become heavily involved with the club music scene on the coast and I find that I need better high ISO performance. I have resisted change for a while but as time passes my need grows more urgent and Olympus don't seem to be investing much in the E-system at the moment. This has led me to buy a Nikon D3s for my commercial work. It is highly likely that I will continue to be an Olympus user, probably with an E-PL1 but 4/3rds cannot deliver for me right now and I have decided not to wait any longer. My decision is less to do with brands and more to do with my changed circumstances.
