Must be feeling pretty low there, bro'. Seriously, with the amount of dosh
you'd have to lay out for those names, could you _really_ justify it? I
mean, would it be that much better? Would it do anything your OM stuff can't
do now? Don't be seduced by the names.

Please note I am _not_ maligning anything, I just feel that switching
camera/lens brands is not a decision to take lightly. At least Oly are still
putting some hardware in cases, you can still get it serviced, and even buy
new lenses if you wish (and can afford it). FWIW I can't see how switching
to either of these would improve my photography, but feel free to prove me
wrong. YMMV, as they say.
