#10. "RE: Useability of D5100 for more serious work." In response to In response to 7
Matthew, yes the Olympus is smaller than the D5100. But it is a 4/3rds camera with a much smaller sensor. I would certainly not dissuade you from getting the Olympus. You should get what you are comfortable with. But do yourself a favor and read the reviews on the camera and available lenses before you make the decision. There are advantages and disadvantages to the 4/3rds system.
