This year is shaping up as a good one for new cameras hitting the market. Nikon has belted out of the gates early with the new D7100, which from all reviews ticks all the boxes and finally an APSC camera that knocks the K5 off the DxO image quality pedestal.
But the rumor mill is still running hot. We’re yet to see what Canon will do with the 7DMkII, and obviously in April Pentax is rumored to have the K3 announcement.
But it’s not just the big boys…
Micro 4/3rds cameras (or just Mirrorless in general) over the last couple of years have come in leaps and bounds. You can do nearly as much with e Mirrorless as you can with an entry DSLR with a fraction of the bulk. And then you have the mighty Olympus OMD EM5. Essentially a *proper* mirrorless DSLR (without the SLR bit).
So that leave me with a quandary. For this year I’ll be doing the following: Firstly I’ll see how the K3 turns out. That will naturally be option one. But will also see if the Full Frame Pentax actually eventuates.
Lastly tho, and not least; I’ll be keeping a very close eye on the rumored EM5 replacement. If Olympus can step up again like they did with the EM5, it could be enough for me to jump ships altogether!
