Re: If only Sony had some decent glass

Yes both systems are evolving nicely. I own one from each group.
There are some myths around, which is to be expected.

  • The latest m43 Olympus PENS are the EPL5 and the EPM2, and both have the EM-5's 16 mpxl sensor.

  • I just bought an Olympus 40-150mm lens for $200 which is much cheaper, smaller and nearly half the weight of the equivalent e-mount Sony 55-210 telephoto lens. Furthermore the 40-150 outperforms the 55-210 in tests.

  • Most Sony lenses are very fine. (although there needs to be more choices.) Example: The kit 18-55 e-mount is as good as and no larger than the much-vaunted Panasonic 14-45 kit zoom lens. I also own one of each.
