Olympus faster lenses and IBIS
In reply to Daniel Wee, Jan 29, 2014

Thanks for the samples, they are very helpful.

I would remind everyone that Olympus has wider aperture lenses and IBIS too.  This means if you use the Olympus 12-40mm F/2.8 as a walkabout lens, not only will you have a greater range and more uses (also a great close-up lens), but you will get 1 extra stop of light over the new Sony 24-70mm F/4 lens.

And if you are using primes, the FE primes don't have IS, so the IBIS will in some cases also give you a couple extra stops advantage.

For me it doesn't matter.  There are no avaialbe long lenses fo rthe A7 and the focusing is still not good.  For me the Sony is not even a consideration because it can't do what I want.
