Nex-7 vs OMD shots...

I varied different combos...210 w/ Nikon TC-E15ED (472mm EFL) on Nex-7 vs EM5 100-300 (600mm EFL) just to see if there was any value in using it for birding/nature...Nex-7 18-200LE vs EM5 14-150 at varying focal lengths...

Yes, the Nex-7 is most impressive with 18-200...had to prove it to myself, it is a better superzoom than the Oly 14-150 from these shots, not putting the EM5 down, as with good glass it is a very close match if not better in some than the you can't go wrong with either camera...

EM5 Cons:

  • Huge hump on top making it more difficult to get in out of hip holster
  • Poor designed grip that should have an option for a larger deeper grip (not battery grip)

Nex-7 Cons:

  • No long end lens...max 210mm...
  • No IBIS
  • Easy to turn EV Control Wheel inadvertently

Hers the link to the shots...I picked through them choosing the best IQ, it looked like the Nex-7 10 sec 3-shot mode actually caused the second two shots to blur from the shutter...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
