I think I have the best of two worlds. I have been busy the last few days. I like to bring a camera to my family events. Sometimes the O-MD is the best choice and sometimes the D600 is.

I have two photos that both mean a lot to me...one taken with each camera. I do not love one photo more than the other. I think each camera did a fantastic job. I can feel confident in either kit.

There are two guys in my life who are both huge dog lovers. My son-in-law has been living with us for a couple of months. He spent a huge amount of time playing with our dogs. He and my daughter just moved into their first home this week. The first thing they did was pick up a puppy that they have been waiting to get. I love this picture of my son-in-law at the lake the other night with his new puppy. Taken with the O-MD E-M5 and the 45 f.18 lens.

Yesterday we had a July 4th picnic at our home. My dad was here. He is the other big dog lover. He met the puppy and it was love at first sight. Because I was here at home, I used the D600 and my 70-200 f2.8 VR I lens....a combination I don't like to use when we go somewhere to family events because of it's size.

I feel blessed that I have both systems and don't regret my purchases of either. I am using them both about equally.

2 great shots Terri, both well done! I never owned the D600 but I do know the 70-200 VR on the D700 is stellar and obviously is on the D600 as well. You know what you're missing don't you? you need the 75mm for your OMD - :smile:

I realize that, but since I have bought the D600, 24-120 f4, and Tokina 17-35 this year, my camera purchases for the year are over. Maybe next year.:biggrin: I have my limits.

Terri, great captures! In terms of composition both shots look very similar, the only way I could tell them apart is due to the color signatures of each camera (Olympus leans towards magenta, Nikon towards green with the newer bodies at least). :smile:

+1 Two great cameras, each with a purpose.

It's all about preferred perspectives, isn't it. My favorite lenses on FX are the 35 and 85, so it's no surprise that my favorites on u4/3 are the 20 and 45. And while the 180/2.8D blows me away, it's my least used lens, which has helped me resist the 75/1.8. What I really want is a puppy, but Nancy has helped me resist that urge. :frown:

Yes, I've definitely noticed the color difference. Color correcting is not my strong suit.

What kind of puppy would you like? You shouldn't look at these pictures, because Melissa and Ian's new puppy is pretty cute!!

Yeah, m43 sounds like a great complimentary system to full frame.
Last year I hardly used my D300 because the IQ was so close to the E-M5 it was always easier to take the smaller kit. But there is a difference in FX IQ so I use the FX kit when it is convenient. For me, m4/3 is a great complimentary system.

Any kind. I love them all. I'd drive down to the pound today, and rescue one of the wee beasties, but it wouldn't do much for harmony in my home. :redface:

Well stated. I fully agree with your conclusions, Terri.
