Also, taking about price vs features and comparing. Please name one Fuji, Sony or Samsung camera at any price point that includes an extremely convenient pocket size flash that both tilts and swivels.

One thing I did notice as I wasn't bowled over by the image quality is that quite a few are taken with the 14-42 3.5-5.6. If you look at the ones taken with the 12-40 F2.8 they are clearly have more clarity and sharpness.

I agree with Kawika Nui, it would be nice to see the RAW files or at least the JPG's straight out of the camera without the PP work.

ThePhilips: Oly shouldn't have left out the PDAF from the E-M5 mk2...

Fuji doesn't have IBIS or a higher bitrate video codec. Sony has PDAF but not IBIS in comparable camera such as the A5100. Samsung has no IBIS. One could argue that without effective IBIS anything other than a rig or steadycam makes the video function of these cameras useless. However it is horses for courses and each person buys a camera for what features they require. If PDAF is at the top of your list then simply buy Fuji, Sony or Samsung and be happy. That is your prerogative but it is wrong to say that a missing feature is ridiculous. From what I have read there is very little difference when using m43 lenses anyway.

I love the way people come here to clearly do nothing more than slate the camera. If you have no interest in it then jog on and just enjoy what ever camera you do salivate over.

No it isn't ridiculous. The A5100 doesn't have IBIS and the Olympus does. Each manufacturer implements different features in their range and applies a price point accordingly. You cannot say that one camera is ridiculous because it doesn't have a feature that another brands camera does.
