DSLR Camera sensor format and body selection questions
This one's for all you photo buffs out there.
I've reached the point where my point-and-shoot Cannon SD850 is the limiting factor in my picture taking. I do mostly landscape and still shots, with the occasional action picture (cars, airplanes, mountain bikes etc). My old man can get me a deal on any Olympus equipment, and I really like the combination of Live View, sensor cleaning, and image stabilization all built into their bodies, but the 4/3 format and lack of lens support from other manufacturers kind of scares me. I have almost picked up a Digital Rebel XT or XTi on multiple occasions, though in a moment of weakness drooled over a Nikon D40 as well. Budget is a significant factor for me (in the lens as well as body department) as well as durability and weight, as I intend to take this equipment with me (likely in a Pelican case) when snowboarding and mountain biking.
So basically I'm looking for some feedback regarding the 4/3 format, body choices, intended use, etc. Since I love taking night pictures of my car, ISO sensitivity will of course be a big factor. I know much of that can be helped with a decent tripod though.
Thanks for the collective wisdom!
