OM-D EM5 vs GM1
11 months ago

I have both bodies and one has to go, so, what body providers better image quality / features?

I know the main things going for EM5 are the IBIS and better manual control, EVF and a hot shoe for flash.

For GM1 it is the size and a couple of nifty things like electronic shutter and focus peaking.

I usually shoot aperture priority or shutter priority and never really do EV compensation so not having 2 mode dials is not an issue. I don't care too much about an EVF either, i am OK either way. Don't care about flash either or lack of hot shoe.

The lenses i have are

- Panasonic 12-32mm f3.5-5.6

- Panasonic 14mm f2.5

- Olympus 17mm f1.8

- Olympus 45mm f1.8

- Panasonic Vario X 45-175mm f4-5.6

I will probably sell the 14mm f2.5 too since I only really had it for its compact size but the collapsible zoom is just as compact. Will I miss the OIS on my Olympus primes?
