Re: Swapping EM1 for A7- A good decision.

shutter2013, welcome to DPR. That's quite a first post :-). I tend to agree with most of what you posted. The only point I'm not clear about is the difference in equivalent f stops between formats. I get the DOF deal, but I get a bit confused when it comes to how much light is coming into the camera and hitting the sensor, etc. However, I don't let that kind of stuff worry me, as it's a bit more technical than I'm interested in. I just go out and enjoy taking photos.

As for the original poster's decision. Hey, there's nothing wrong with picking a camera system based on sensor size, or lens availability, or even the color of the lens cap. Whichever camera helps the photographer enjoy taking photos is the camera they ought to use. Period.
