Well all formats have their pros and cons; small formats like the Nikon V1 and M4/3s....May 9 2012 at 12:27 AM

Response to Yep
allow you to carry a smaller camera and smaller lenses,( both prime and zoom,) have very fast focus acquisition and are great for times when you want deep DOF,as opposed to shallow DOF. The previous constraint of noise in M4/3s sensors over ISO 800 has been removed now, with the Olympus OMD EM5,getting rave reviews for its hi ISO performance (very good till ISO 6400 ) and world's fastest focusing, 5 Axis IBIS, 9 fps,etc.
I honestly can't go back to lugging big bad SLR's with huge zooms on my travels, BUT if I had a 5D3, I may just do it ! (-:
