In reply to Cane, Apr 20, 2014

I chose the GX7 over EM1/5 for two main reasons.

1.) Silent shutter. Being able to shoot tens of thousands of shots without putting wear on my shutter is great, plus being able to take a shot without distracting family and friends is priceless.

2.) Video. Low light video isn't as needy as stills, because video can usually make due with slower SS and not have issues. Because of this, i don't necesarilly need super fast lenses (like my 20 F1.7) for video. This means i can use a stabilized lens that is a bit slower and still be happy. To me, the superior video IQ is more important than Olympus IBIS for video.
