I Ditched My Nikon Today for Mirrorless

On my way home with it barely out of the box, I stopped and got this shot of Mt. Diablo from Lafayette. It's a single RAW file because I hadn't stopped long enough yet to figure out bracketing ;-) 

Turns out it wasn't very hard to setup.  Anyway, after some research and thoroughly pouring over the reviews of +Gordon Laing at CameraLabs.com, yesterday I surrendered and made a choice of my new camera. Today I bought it.

The Sony A7r was tempting me, yet my gut said it was too much.  Too heavy, too many pixels, too light on lens choices. My new camera is the flagship Olympus OMD EM-1.  

Upgrading to this engineering marvel from my Nikon is like getting the newest model Terminator. It's touch screen is amazing and the viewfinder is so large and bright with lots of Terminator-like intel flashing at me. One surprise that made me smile was the diopter adjustment for the viewfinder.  My eyes are really bad and I've never had a camera in my life with a high enough correction to use without glasses.  This viewfinder is nice and sharp so now I can photograph without glasses for the first time ever!

The iPhone app is crazy cool and I can't wait to control my camera with it out in the field.  Now I have a remote shutter release in my pocket with that app. I can also speedily transfer any shots on my SD card right into my iPhone with a point of my finger with it's built-in Wi-Fi. 

There's so much yet to learn and get comfortable with.  Even so, it already feels like an old friend. That's because my first camera was the Olympus OM-1 SLR 35 years ago.  The cool thing is that the on-off switch on this new camera is identical to the power switch on my OM-1.  It feels so solid in my hands and the body and lens are fully water & dust sealed.  Not sure if I'm up to testing that out at Burning Man though.

I guess my main reasons for getting the EM-1 are for traveling lighter without sacrificing quality. I don't care that the sensor is smaller than my Nikon.  It won't matter a hoot for most of the photography I do. 

What really blows me away is the difference in size of the lenses.  My new super wide angle lens weighs 1/4 of what my equivalent Nikon lens weighs. The body is likewise, dramatically smaller.

This new package is going to make my next trip just a bit more civilized.  With it being so much smaller and lighter, I'm looking for a smaller bag of some sort so I can get rid of the big heavy backpack I've been using for years.  Maybe it's time to make that trip to Burma that's been calling me for awhile now. I know it's Myanmar now, but I've always known it as Burma.  It's like Saigon.  None of the locals there call it Ho Chi Minh City.
