5D2 in comparison

Very nice series. Good emotional content in the people shots.Not an easy thing to express in photographs.

This was my first time out using the EM5 for a typical 5D2-people-job.  The EM5 was a bit frustrating for focus point size with all of the ribbons streaming in the way (switching to the smallish box helped a bit, more button presses resulting), but the WYSIWYG viewfinder was a fantastic aid to exposure.  People with an overwhelming amount of black clothing tripped up my 5D2 on a number of shots, causing long shutter speeds, and going past the point of raw recover in a few instances.

For the curious, here are the 135L shots (aka the reason I can't fathom the 75/1.8)
