"Possible Farewell..."

All,

i don;t know if this is the right forum to post this, but I suppose the moderators will move it if need be.
Recently I purchased a Oly E-P3 for a trip. Lugging my SLR gear, even with just 1 50 attached seemed to be an issue. I know it shouldn't be..but it was, I think a weight and size issue more than anything while traveling. The size had stopped me from using my beloved D700 that I had been married too for two years.
Anyway,traveling with the little E was quite a game changer and unfortunately i can;t stand to own gear I don;t use. So I believe it is time to sell/trade as I have a Oly OM-D on order.
In fact, my D800 had come in and for the moment at least, I passed, with some remorse of course just knowing it was going to be a fantastic camera. But I also know I don;t want to deal with the huge files it will put out. I realize i am giving up some things for now while saying goodbye to a SLR but every time I leave the house I have the little E with me. And you know what they say..."I missed 100% of the pictures I didn't take".I think my subjects have taken on more of a static rather than action format from the past also.
Anyway, i have been a member of this board off and on for years and I wanted to thank all of you for your help and knowledge through the years. the aspects of photography I learned here I am taking with me.
I may try to at least just keep the D700, 50 and a few pieces of glass and sell the rest depending on funds, but whatever happens I just wanted to say I love this forum.

Keep shooting!!!!
