Re: Long List

1. Greater resolution.

2. About equal IQ otherwise which is quite impressive since Pentax is the best APS-C

3. Smalller

4. Lighter

4. Tiltable OLED

5. Better quality primes, especially for the price.

6. Better movie quality

7. Larger user base

8. More certain future, less chance of m43rds mount becoming extinct

Honest question, I am not trying to troll. I've never shot Pentax, though a good friend is very happy with them. I've just got a lot of money wrapped up in m43, an OM-D order, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe I've gone crazy. By the spec sheets, they seem like awfully similar cameras with the hard numbers tipped in favor of the K-5.

Is it just down to (good) live view and size?
