Re: An anti-EM1 Thread - Here's why
In reply to AndyGM, Sep 17, 2013

I want to pick up on the point someone made that m43 has squandered the size advantage to NEX, that the NEX-7 is smaller than this camera. Well, yes, but the NEX lenses are not. They are considerably larger than their like for like m43 equivalents. When an E Mount camera with a full frame sensor comes out, it will need all new lenses that are even bigger. If you are really going to get into a system and not just tote around the kit zoom, you will be carrying one camera body and several lenses. Not one lens and several camera bodies. So it makes more sense to have the size savings in the lenses. Given the choice (and I was), I chose smaller lenses and a near entry level body that's no larger than the NEX cameras (although the next m43 camera I buy will probably be the successor to the E-P5, which will be a little bigger than what I have now).
