Considering EM-5 to EM-1 Upgrade
Mar 14, 2014

Anyone upgrade from the EM-5 to the EM-1 and felt disappointed? I think the EM-5 is a great camera, certainly better than my current expertise, however I'm considering the upgrade for the following improvements:

- PDAF for better continuous focus tracking of moving subjects (sports, dance, etc.) I don't have any legacy lenses (yet) so support for 4/3s isn't a priority

- True focus peaking

- Increased number of focus points

- Better ergonomics for customized buttons, dials, etc.. I've read many say that with the new ergonomics they can actually manipulate more settings without having to leave the EVF.

- Better EVF

I already know from reading other posts that IQ between the two is comparable, so hopefully no real 'sacrifices' in upgrading (outside of cost) unless I'm missing something.

Thanks!!
