Nice comparison of features, although I feel the 'I prefer the 3:2 aspect ratio' one is moot, given you can simply set JPG output (and EVF/screen framing) to 3:2. In fact, I have, because 4:3 aspect ratio just looks like a TV to me. Can't shake it. Do not like.

(i.e. I will be cropping all of my RAW processed shots from the E-M5)

You can always crop it:

I agree you can always crop it.
My point is that the sensor itself is 4:3 instead of 3:2 so you do loose some pixel by cropping either in camera or in post.

To the best of my knowledge Panasonic make the only true multi-aspect sensors in their GH and LX series cameras so that a cropped 3:2 or 16:9 format use the full image circle. The resolution is still reduced because the wider formats occupy less surface area. For instance a GH1 set to 3:2 produes an ~11.5MP file instead of the full 12MP in 4:3 format.

I hope you were dressed in Blue Ewan! It was a pretty awesome site seeing that ocean of blue cheering on in the final minutes. Would have been better to be in the stadium

Being primarily an AFL fan, I was dress neutrally :lol: I was cheering for the blues though!

Free tickets for me and friends to experience a 85,000 strong crowd, wasn't going to throw that away! Even for a rugby game it was a great experience

Probably shouldn't advertise that you follow afl on an public forum like this. People might get the wrong idea....

It's OK, this is only a photography forum, not a rugby league forum (where he may get flamed) :lol:

I picked up a silver body w/12-50 lens from Amazon and finally had a chance to take it out for some shooting today. We went to an MLB game and it was very nice not having the bulk of the 5d2 + lenses. So much more conspicuous taking pictures with this little guy too.

First impression is that I love using the touch screen to take pictures. I have been focus and recomposing so much lately with the center point on the 5d2 that it was really a breath of fresh air to just focus anywhere I wanted in an instant. However the screen was sometimes difficult to use during the bright sunlight. And the EVF doesn't get along well with polarized sunglasses.

The pictures look good but nothing I'm blown away by. Its still early but the cost of this camera plus some decent lenses is going to be the biggest drawback for me. I could sell the 5d2 and return the OM and buy a 5d3 for just a couple hundred more.

I finally got my Olympus 45mm, Panasonic 14mm and 20mm primes to go with my OM-D. I am going to ditch the kit lens and just go with these three primes. I am 100% agree with Jacobsen that the point of OM-D is small and compact so I avoid bigger m43 lens.

These primes especially the two Panasonic are amazingly small. All three have stellar IQ and are better than the 14-42 kit zoom significantly. I found myself grabbing these instead of my Canon kit more and more.
