I bought something else ;-)
Apr 28, 2012

Wayne from this forum already caught me over on the micro 4/3 forum. LOL

I'm NOT selling my V1, but I did buy the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and I sold off my D700 and all the lenses for it. No, the high ISO image quality is not the same as the D700, but it's pretty close and for me 'close enough' for my photography. Put the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens on the OM-D and WOW the images are sharp and beautiful.

Anyway, I was surprised to see that this larger sensor camera is essentially the same size as the V1. These examples are with the OM-D with the Oly 9-18 super wide angle zoom compared to the V1 with the 10-30 zoom. The Oly 9-18 is nearly the same size as the kit 14-42mm lens that came with the camera. The OM-D has the included flash attached and that can be removed. It has a standard hot-shoe for full size flash as well as a little smart connection just below/behind it for more specialized Olympus items I guess. The included flash isn't as powerful as the SB-N5, but I won't be using flash much anyway.
