Re: Leaving DSLR - pros and cons of X-E1 vs OM-D EM-5

I was torn between these same two camera models a short time ago. Fortunately my wife bought the Olympus so I got to handle it and see the results she got without buying anything. Her pictures are great, with excellent color and very sharp. However, for my medium to large hands the controls on the EM-5 are just too small and close together. Just trying to pick it up had me changing settings by bumping something with a finger. After handling one in a local camera shop I bought the Fujifilm X-E1 a few days ago. The auto focus will take some getting used to but by the time all the lenses I want are available I should have a good handle (pun intended) on using the X-E1.

Like so much in the consumer world, this is such a matter of personal choice I wouldn't begin to try an advise the OP what to do. Just passing on my experience and decision, and the reasons for it.
