have faith on this one

You've noticed the problem with your 12MP Oly - they like to blow the highlights. Other than that, they are pretty good. The Sony 16MP sensor fixes that as decisively as possible given the pixel size that 16MP produces. Noise improves, to the point where I've upped my personal limit from ISO800 to 1600, and of course detail improves as one would expect given the increase in physical resolution. But it's the DR and the highlight retention that really seals the deal. It's hard to imagine you would not find the fix to the problem satisfying.

The OMD stabilization is just as good. Combine the two, and m43s starts making all kinds of sense for those who can live without OVFs and PDAF tracking and prediction.
