Olympus OM-D E-M5 or X100 (IQ)?
Sep 6, 2012


I am thinking of selling my X100 and buying the Olympus with the 20mm f2 and 45mm 1.8.

I have a 7D which I use for birding, and I want a very light outfit for travel and walk around. I am tempted by the Olympus because of its ease of use, IS and fast focus. Also a variety of small, fast lenses. However I don't want a big drop in IQ when compared with the X100.

I would welcome opinions of anyone who has experience of both cameras. Not really interested in delving into the X100's various foibles---it does produce great images.
