Re: EM-5 vs Canon DSLR

I see you were not very happy with the handling of the EM-5, but EM-5 is not the only option of the μ4/3 lineup. On the other hand, I see that you shoot video as well. Panasonic have cameras with good grip and excellent video capabilities. Check Panasonic Lumix GH3 and G5. GH3 has essentially the same sensor as EM-5, an excellent grip, good manual controls, better AF than EM-5 (I think), and it is the best option for shooting video in small system camera / DSLR range. G5 falls back in every category, but not very much, and of course costs less.

However, solely because you shoot a lot of sports / action, a DSLR is still probably the best choice for you.
