    To me building and learning to use a good lighting kit is more important than the step up from consumer to pro glass.

    K1W1- I agree. My little Fuji X-E1's images are at least as good as those taken with my D3 when I'm not using exotic glass on the Nikon and for macro photography small sensor cameras provide greater DOF. That said, when it comes to actually shooting, I do prefer the way the big heavy stuff feels in my hands and the way the controls operate- overall I find the process of taking images is more enjoyable with the D3.

    I agree...and disagree. Love small sensor cameras for macro and DOF. My current everyday glass works fine for most situations, but I still want a 24-70 f/2.8. Let's see some side-by-sides of small sensor cams and DSLR's shot at 3200 ISO.

    No doubt small sensor cameras are excellent for 70% of snaps, but there are situations where they just can't match heavier equipment. Like RichNY I like the extra weight and stability. On the flip side are DOF and Macro. Like I've said before I still use my old CP990 for exactly those reasons.

    I was talking about small cameras not necessarily small sensors.
    Comparing shots at iso3200 would not be a fair fight. My D300 is pretty well unusable at iso3200 but my X100s at iso6400 is like the D300 at about iso400.

    there is little debate that, broadly speaking, larger sensors lead to better iso performance but the differences are not as apparent or limiting as they used to be. the oly is about a stop behind the fuji sensor in high iso in genuinely low light. so strictly speaking a camera not much bigger than a canon s100 compact can deliver images of better quality than a d300. now thats something dont you think ?

    i've been down this small mirrorless road before with i think the GF2 it was. when i shot the camera i was instantly UNDERwhelmed by its performance. iso 800 was unuesable to me so i sold it almost immediately. the comprimise on IQ was just too much. then i got the oly and within 24hrs i knew that m4/3 was now good enough for the comprimise to be worth making. combine that with touchscreen autofocus that is faster than anything i've ever used, including a d4, and well...lets just say that within a week of recieving the epl/5, i have listed 3 of my dslr lens' for sale.

    i cant see myself abandoing dslr anytime soon, the AF tracking alone would stop me from moving to mirrorless, but i now have a genuine alternative to a larger camera at very reasonable prices. i dont know why anyone would invest in the cheapo aps-c cameras like a rebel or a d3200, that makes zero sense to me now.

    Yeah, may try one of the new hi-perf small cams one of these days. Seem to be stuck in a rut. Gotta get out on a shoot. Shooting yard flowers and bugs... Really?

    A surprising number of kids can. I've seen many goals scored for corners at that age level.

    The world record for attendance at a US major league baseball game is held by the MCG in Melbourne. 115,000 people (in 1956!).
    There are large numbers of Australian baseball players in top teams in the US professional leagues.
