The difference to me is in the more digital look of the E-M5 (not only when using the 45/1.8).

I just could not decide. In general though, when I am editing raw files I do feel that µ4/3 is handicapped by only 12 bit data. The 14 bit files feel much more malleable, and the gradations feel smoother, especially in the shadows. But I think the difference would be difficult to tell if one has not had this experience first-hand. May be that's why some representative, either Panasonic or Olympus, said they did not see much benefit in adopting 14 bit files.


Yes, i fully agree. It becomes more visible once you manipulate colors in pp.
