I'm posting this question here on GetDPI in the m4/3s forum because frankly this group of photographers seems to be one of the best I know of on the net and a group whose work and opinions I have high regard for.
Specifically I have been sitting on the fence for quite sometime regarding selling my Canon DSLR gear and replacing it with the Olympus OM5 and EPL5 bodies.
Due to a serious foot accident and subsequent surgery my ability to carry heavy gear (say like the EF 70-200 f/2.8) has been very compromised. My mobility is about 85% of what it once was.
Can I now expect the IQ of these new bodies and Oly/Pana lenses to be on par from what I get from my Canon gear such as the 7D and 5D MKII?
If I sell all of my Canon gear it will represent a sea change in my photographic life so I want to be reassured that my decision will be a positive one.
FWIW, my work tends toward landscapes, portraits, and occasional street photography with an interpretive fine art approach. I have very good post skills using LR and PS and assorted plugins. I output to digital inkjet prints as well as alt. process prints made from digital inkjet negatives which are then printed and processed in the traditional wet darkroom. Because of my long use of LF cameras I seek the highest quality image properties such as sharpness, dynamic range, etc.
Any input will be appreciated.
