This was quite a long walk and carrying the two cameras was still comfortable but I was pretty tired at the end. Not using m4/3 is going to increase the weight, so I'm probably going to get a 16-85mm zoom for the Nikon 5100 for these long-distance trips.

Looking at the pictures on the screen I realised again just how sharp M8 files are. 10MP yes, but capable of being substantially interpolated. I'm sending out the images upsized to 14MP and 41MB at the moment. They could go higher but at this size it still keeps the incredible sharpness. I could go to 18MP easily, but then the files just look like an ordinary camera!!
