XE1 distilled for connoisseurs
My EP1 just didnt have enough DR, nor quite enough shallow dof (lovely camera, deep colours lush b&w).
My Nex5 just doesn't cut it for me for stage performer, sports & just doesn't make me feel creative as my EP1.
My J1 speed for sports yet just doesnt cut it for indoor (iso 1600 1/30 !) nor shallow dof.
OMD i tested in London's Bond Street
liked its EVF & fast single shot AF touch screen.
Nice cam but no cigar.
Aaaaaand i did miss the huge EVF from my Olympus UZI (2100UZ), imo nicer than OMD.
EP1's loveliness & deep colours lush b&w (going by XP1)
Nex5's shallow dof & good in low light.
J1's speed for concerts, sports with right lens.
UZI's EVF and then some.
Like a smooth malt XE1.
(only thing id liked is weather sealing
& due to my weak right shoulder & neck strain a tilt screen).
The real artist is the subject, the photographer an admiring devotee.
