E-M1 + 12-40 vs Sony A7r + 24-70
Jul 26, 2014

I have an E-M1 that I got because I have many mFT and FT lenses, and I am very happy with it. The 12-40 f/2.8 is a marvelously sharp lens.
However, I noticed that the Sony A7r together with the 24-70 f/4 form a combo that is similar in price and weight.
The Sony has better low light sensitivity and more resolution. On the other hand, 16MP is all I need now, and working with smaller, sharper images is convenient and satisfactory.
I bought the Olympus for the lenses I have, mainly, and for the great colors I have always been getting from my Olympuses. (I could also add that I haven't yet completely forgiven Sony the rootkit episode).
I am curious : how did you make the choice?
