Does the OMD really offer equal IQ to the K5ii?

My understanding is that it doesn't offer the same IQ as the K5, mark I.

In reality, the OMD 5 just matches or almost match a good DSLR, heck it might just be on par with my K-r and lets say both with good glass.

Now the K5 is a different matter. Before the other and recent iterations of the Sony 16mp CMOS sensor, it is regarded as the best APSC camera as it can be. Now with the K5II with a weaker AA filter, the gap between the OMD5 should be farther and if compared to K5IIs that does not even have an AA, they do not even belong in the same zip code.

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.
