Thanks Advent1sam,

Interesting comments. The A6000/55-210/DH1758 combo actually costs a little less than the E1 body. I guess there's no doubt that the A6000 combo would be better for BIF, and it focuses almost as fast as the E5. I love the Olympus S-AF+MF setting for overriding auto focus which often focuses on background or other high contrast points, especially when the background or foreground is busy such as a bird in a tree. Does the A600/55-210/DH1758 have the same ability to use the focus ring to easily override auto focus? I have read others who were slightly disappointed after upgrading from the E5 to E1. How about the less expensive E10?

Hi Doug, yes, the a6k can be set for dmf (direct manual focus, af+mf) + you have focus peaking too which once you have it you wont want to be without it, look for the focus peaking in the eye or the feathers for example and you can shoot without any af!, not currently an option with the em-5 or the electronic first curtain which has been added to the em-1 too. Don't get me wrong the em-1 is a great piece of kit, but depending on what your doing or want to do the a6k seems a very good option for speed

see 51 and 52
