I am sure you did not offend anyone. Your decision is an entirely personal one and it is probably something that most people felt that they really couldn't offer very much in the way of an intelligent comment or reply.
I bought the E-P3 to take on business trips when I don't want to carry a large camera. It has come in very handy, taking photos of client groups I am working with, process maps on the wall, etc. It is very handy as a small camera. I am going to Russia in June for a week, entirely for business, and I am debating whether or not to bring the EP3 or my D800. Having never been there before, I am a bit leery about carry the expensive camera.
I think we each have different needs at different times. It may very well be that for you, at this time, divesting yourself of large cameras and enjoying the convenience of the EP3 is exactly the right decision... for you.
