Help me decide EOS M or Olympus EP5 for travel camera
Jul 14, 2013

I use a Canon 5D as my main camera.  59 f1.4,   24-105, 17-40, 70-200 f4 lenses.

For those who own the EOS M system several questions:

I am thinking EOS M with kit lens because it can also use the EOS lenses.   Do the EOS lenses work well with the EOS M?

How is the AF or must use  manual focus?   Is it fast enough for low light shooting ?  For example in typical  living room,  restaurant/ bar lighting?

Or do you think Oly Pen EP with kit lens,  plus adding EOS lens adapter better faster focusing?  Is a better combo?

Primary use will be as a back up /light travel kit.

Thank you.
