Time for a change

A while back I purchased a Canon EOS M, EF-M 22mm F/2, Canon EF-M 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 and the 90EZ flash unit.  I have loved using this little powerhouse of a camera but sadly Canon U.S.A. has decided to leave the users of it completely adrift in the US.  

 

 They have not continued with the M line since it's release and abysmal sales until Canon sold the overstock at fire sale prices to clear the inventory and no new M gear has hit the shelves since here in the states.  You can import the items from Canada, or any of the other countries that have it (read: Most of them) but you cannot get them here.  This is bad for me.

 

  I really like the M.  It is a fantastic little camera for how I shoot. It gets great images when I don't screw up.  Sadly Canon has made it hard for me to continue supporting the line when I need more.

 

  So with all that in mind I have been window shopping around the net and stumbled upon what may well be my next step in photographic progression.  

 

 The Olympus OM-D EM-1 micro four thirds system.  It has every feature I have been looking for, and drooling over in the big Canon cameras like the 6D, 5D Mark III, etc.  It is weather sealed. It has excellent quality glass up to "Pro" grade level. It is extremely well built. It has Wifi control.

 

 Everything I have been looking for in a camera since before I bought the  M.  Oh, I forgot to mention that it also costs less than the Canon Lineup.  That was the final push for me.  I need a good, high quality camera that is rugged, weather sealed and is capable of capturing great images when I do my part.  The OM-D EM-1 seems to be able to provide all that and a LOT more.  So hopefully in the future I will be posting the first images taken with one of these beauties.
