Olympus EPL2 vs Canon 5D2

Hi Guys

An extremely non-scientific comparison test between EPL2 and 5D2 on a cloudy day.

Can you guess which is the Canon Flagship and which is the Cheaper and smaller Olympus?

Canon with the 70-300 L
Olympus with the 40-150
Both at 140mm (equiv, so Oly at 70mm)

Both ISO 400

Olympus f/4,6
Canon f/5,6

Both 1/250

I'll reveal which camera produced which photo in a day or two if you are interested.

Just makes me think why I have a 5D2 sometimes, but OK, in low light and some more challenging conditions the Canon gets the job done more consistently.

I hope I don't stir up too many feelings with this posting, but I find the real life result quite interesting...
