    Evening.

    Thinking of selling my Bulky Nikon Digital SLR in favour of something more compact.

    Opinions welcome please?

    I thought you were flogging old pens collected from the defunct Greek airline Olympus.

    I've got an Olympus OM-D M10 which will be more like what you have now but smaller. It works well but isn't brilliant for video if that's an issue.

    I had about £10k worth of Canon gear collected over many years. I sold it all a couple of years ago and went down the Oly, Micro Four Thirds route. Initially regretted it but then the EM1 mark ii came out. I love it, much smaller than the DSLR and once you know the shortcomings you can get round them easy enough. The pro lenses are top quality, a joy and so small compared to the full frame equivalents. I have the The Pen F as well which is tiny but takes all the lenses in my growing collection

    I've told my kids.... When I pop my clogs, please don’t let Mum sell my gear for what I told her I paid for it.:)

    Echo Jim, I have Olympus EPL-5 and EM1. Almost full SLR quality but fraction of the weight. Love them.

    The Olympus Pen in all its varients is a superb camera, though I struggle without a viewfinder on mine.
