Well ...given the image quality of the EM-5 ..that's no longer the case ..hey what am I saying ....Canon APS-C camera images have always been crap ..oops ..sorry ..soft ..compared to those produced by even the" lowly" EPL-1 .

canon is not the only brand you know. Buy K5 and it would run circles around anything m43. Why k5, even 2-3 years old k-x would thrash anything m43 on IQ.

...or even its ancient predecessors ..the E-410/E-510. Canon would probably argue that Olympus's images look sharper due to software enhancement ...yurr ..right ...everyone else ... (including most Canonites) would argue that it's due to far superior lenses.

The EM-5, in spite of it's (seemingly) stupidly high price..represents a sea change in digital photography .....as many of us have observed ..when we examined the quality of the poster-sized prints that were displayed at the "Focus on Imaging" exhibition at Birmingham, UK. (Even the nearby Nikon D800 exhibition guys came over to have a look):
