I love my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I’ve been shooting with Canon digital SLRs since the breakthrough EOS D30 in 1990. Along the way, I’ve shot with lots of other digital SLRs, and a huge assortment of point-and-shoot cameras. Point-and-shoots have always been frustrating due to their lack of flexibility and mediocre quality, so I’ve always loved having a quality SLR to fall back on. But, to be honest, the 5D ain’t light. Especially if you want to carry some extra lenses. Micro Four Thirds cameras are a perfect in-between, offering great quality and the flexibility of an SLR, but with weight that’s closer to a point-and-shoot than to my 5D. If you’re new to the Micro Four Thirds spec, and what it means, then this overview will get you up to speed quickly.
