Re: Swapping EM1 for A7
In reply to ianbrown, 9 months ago

just preorded the A7 with the 35 mm and will sell my E-M5 with lenses.

why? the A7 is not much larger than the E-M5 with a 12 mm lense or the 25 mm panaleica. and that worked great.

the sony has weather sealed primes! important point and a drawback in the mft world. the weathersealing of the omd is fine, might be one of the bests, but works so far only with one or two zoom. I have the kit one and don't use it at all. all my primes are not sealed.

the price! you can get with the sony a cheaper camera system than the omds. compare the em1 with the A7. with a 5 % voucher the A7 is in germany cheaper than the E-M1! think about the lenses. I was close to buy one voigtländer or other 0.95 lense. for that money I get the 55 mm Zeiss in super quality and AF!

of course, some people miss a lot lenses in the FE mount, but if you are fine with one or two primes and maybe manual lenses, it seems to be a nobrainer
