EM5 and GX7
Mar 6, 2014

I have been very happy with my GX7, with the reservation that colors are not always satisfactory, even shooting raw and converting with either DxO or ACR, and that at times it clips highlights. Remembering how much I liked the colors of the EP1, I bought the EM5. Colors are at times a bit red or a bit magenta, but deeper and truer than the GX7. The EM5 seems less prone to clip highlights. Menus are complicated, but not as bad as I read. All in all, I feel that the GX7 is a more satisfying computer, while the EM5 is a more satisfying camera. That's the first impression after just 30 hours of intensive use.

Now I wonder about the EM1. Does it have better IQ than the EM5, or is it also prone to clip highlights, since it has the same sensor of the GX7?
