y (I own an XTi) with a 70-200mm or thereabouts focal length and a battery grip is might heavy for all day but swap the 70-200 for a 50 and run with just a standard battery and it's light as a feather. On that note though Josh I did manage to finally score a 70-200 L lens got an F4 version in a package I picked up for $300. I was like Holy
Luckily All my old manual glass I shot film with in the 90s.......uses a $30 adapter. Get another box on manual glass to be adapted from my Uncle's old camera in the army. All can be adapted cheaply......except lenses without aperture rings.

Depends if you want a built in viewfinder or not. The Panasonic GX1 just had some major price drops and its a pretty sweet 4/3 cam but sans a viewfinder. The Panasonic GH2 is also dropping and it as a multi-aspect sensor which is pretty sweet and great for video. If you don't want to drop the cash for an OMD, the epl5 and epm2 I believe have the same new sensor as the OMD just with 3-axis IBIS instead of 5 axis IBIS. The IBIS on the OMD is kinda crazy. I've been able to hand hold some crazy low shutter speed and get good exposures. Like 1/6 handheld.
