Here's why the E-M1 matters
In reply to Corpy2, Sep 17, 2013

Hi, thanks for sharing your perspective on m4/3rds and the E-M1.

From my perspective, as a long time Olympus enthusiast (my first digital camera was an Olympus C800 L - ask your dad what life was like when the internet was dial-up ) the E-M1 rewards my faith in keeping just about all of my 4/3rds lenses... and that's where the significant difference in IQ comes, from accessing the ZD 50-200, ZD 50 f2... and of course from Olympus going PRO with their zoom lenses for m4/3rds this is a big deal.

When I look back at the image quality we got with Olympus 4/3rds bodies using 4/3rds lenses, there's a noticeable step up in image quality despite the sensors being less capable... That's the advantage of ZD lenses -  we should notice this in the coming months from E-M1 owners toting classic Olympus designed for digital zoom lenses.

Some examples of old 4/3rds bodies using ZD lenses here :
