Re: EM-1 uses Panasonic sensor per Chipworks

It just goes to show how our brand loyalty can mask what our eyes see.  Many people that like the EM-1 had convinced themselves the camera was superior (to Panasonic) because it used a Sony sensor.  Now that it's been shown the EM-1 uses a Panasonic sensor and everyone is claiming victory, it's the Panasonic sensor, it's the Oly camera.

Every manaufacturer tunes their cameras to produce an JPG image that's in line with their engineers vision of how the images should look.  Canon images look different from Nikon, Panasonic look different from Oly.

If we took RAW images from an Oly and Panasonic I doubt anyone could tell the difference.  Who cares who makes the sensor?
