well I did it..Ive sold off all my ff gear..all my F2.8 glass and flashes.

Im now camera vacant..ive not as much time to do "photography" as I once did..i've house renos and a new one to build on a vacant block next door..plus I also bought a bowrider to have some summer fun in.

I would still like a good camera...but must be light and easy to walk about with but also have good image quality ..I've looked at the EM1 and XT1

if you were in my position..what camera would you buy..out of the many out there...not just the EM1 or Xt1

Buy a Nikon DF and use it with primes only, up to 85mm focal length. The EM1 and XT1 are no alternatives as far as IQ is concerned, except a bit for size and weight (though e.g. a EM1 with the new f1.2 42.5 weights almost as much as the DF with the 1.8 85mm G). If you really want light and high IQ, buy a Ricoh GR and Sony RX1. If zooms are your thing, EM1 plus the Pansonices 12-35 & 35-100mm are ok. But you will miss the FF IQ.
