Olympus e-m10 tough enough for cargo pants pocket?
Jul 12, 2014

I'm in the market for a fairly light weight, large-sensor carry-everywhere camera to keep in my cargo pants side pocket. It will get jostled around a lot and be subject to lint and dust, so I want a sturdy camera with compact pancake lens options. I'm considering Panny GM1, Fuji x100s, and Oly E-M10 or E-M5ii with pancake zoom and 20mm/1.7. But I'm open to other options.
Will all the buttons and knobs on the E-M10 get hung up, moved around, or jostled in my pocket? Or are they sturdy enough to hold up well?
Cargo pants side pocket can hold some volume, but for easy pocket pull-out and put-in the narrower the better.
I am a casual shooter and mostly just photograph my friends and family and travel. People picture are most important subject to me. I want good skin tones and some bokeh where possible. Im a stickler for sharpness. I only shoot JPEG.
