Yikes - stopped by my local camera store....
« on: June 01, 2014, 02:42:20 PM »
Ok, so you can call me a traitor, or least having traitorous thoughts....

I played w/ an Olympus E-M1. I know the sensor is smaller, I know it will be marginally worse than the APC in low light.  (that is why I have a FF anyway) and I am looking for this as a 2nd body regardless.

But...... the focus was very fast, the functions and and customization of the buttons, small, wow small.  Metabones adaptor - perhaps even a speed booster, just get the wide side for the MFT...

If I can't get a high functioning "M"  then.....

Yea I know it is a boat load more money but.....

I am going to check out the Panasonic MFT

Enough said.........
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Be sure to check lenses reviews, the last I read, its a minefield, with a lot of marginal micro four thirds lenses, and some very good ones in other brands besides Olympus.
 
Don't make a mistake and change your mind, resale value is poor.

There are plenty of good lenses.  It just depend on what you need.

Nothing wrong with using more than one brand and more than one format.  That's just part of the fun of photography.

I thought your post was going to conclude with:

...and it was actually still in business!

Those little cameras are great, but there are tradeoffs for sports/wildlife/low light.
More than most, less than some
