Thanks for your comments, these days I´ve imagined myself walking on the street wih an A99 and the EM5. 80% of my time I´d prefer a small camera and only about 20% I´d miss a FF.

Now I understand better how they are different formats and are not exclusive.



To me this is the killer argument. An E-M5 delivers image quality that is more than adequate for an enthusiast amateur. It's also small and light so there's no reason not to carry it with you. The A99 or any other FF DSLR is not only around double the weight but is dependent on lenses that are very much more than twice as heavy as the equivalent optics for m4/3.
