just moved all my canon gear to m43... now using em5, 45mm, 7-14mm, 12-50 and 60mm and i love it.. yes miss a bit of the fuzzy stuff but it's so much lighter and i love the em5 design and performance... the C-AF is poor though

I think we need a generic MFT thread, I'm sure some people here have other MFT brand such as Panasonic.


Nikon/Fuji.

Yup - and I've been to the Phils about 15 times since my last post!

Seriously though, comparing the EP-5 and EM-5 (I had access to both on my last trip to Bangkok, HK and the Philippines), I found that the EM-5 generally had the 14mm F2.5 glued to it, though once ever os often, the 30mm F2.8 Sigma got pulled out.

The EP-5 may as well have had the 17mm F1.8 welded on. I just loved it. Took a day to get in the full swing of the EP-5 after having adjusted to the EM-5 for 4 or 5 days beforehand, but I did prefer having the "low iso" option, and the 1/8000 shutter speed of the EP-5, over the 200 iso and 1/4000 of the EM-5. Having said that, the EM-5 has better control options. Regardless, both were fun, and it was not often that I found myself wishing for the 7D.

I personally do not really like the 4:3 aspect ratio, but I don't really dislike it either, I heavily prefer a 3:2, just seems like a better aspect ratio for images, for me, anyway.

One huge advantage that my 7D has is battery life. With the Sterlingtech batteries, I get 1100-1200+ shots from a battery. Way less on the OM-D or EP-5, but at least batteries are very small, and having one or two in a pocket is not a big deal.

In terms of image quality, I really do think that either of them leave the 7D in the dust. And to be honest, seeing as Canon seem to be sacrificing still photography for video these days (eg - overly aggressive AA filters), A system change may be on the cards anyway.

Having said that, I do actually find taking photos with a DSLR is nicer, I find it much easier to hold the 7D stable, and it's bulk makes it more comfortable during use. Whether or not this makes up for the weight I have to lug around whilst not in use...

Actually, long term I could see myself in 2 systems, an M4:3 for travel and general stuff, and a full frame setup for when I want to shoot something a little more seriously. Not sure which one I would prefer to house for underwater photography though...

Z...

Woohhoo!! Great!! :lol:

I am going to settle for Fuji... even though the AF sucks, I liked the feeling. I do still like m43 at the moment :D

Be a while before I cough up my $1500, so Fuji still has time to fix their AF and win me over...

In body IS in Oly is pretty damn good though.

The US Olympus site now has a mention of a $200 mail in rebate with the purchase of a 12-40 2.8 and E-M1. http://www.getolympus.​com …-ed-12-40mm-f2-8-pro.html (external link)

No official info yet. Hope they don't have to be on the same order...
