Re: How about some pictures?

I'm sorry I won't back my post with photos but here's my 2¢:
I owned the nikon d7000 with primes, kit zooms, high quality 17-50 f2.8 zoom, 105 f2.8 vr macro lens etc.
I also owned the olympus epl1 with the kit zoom, 20mm f1.7, 45mm f1.8, 25 f1.4, 12-50, 14-45,14-42 pz, 45-200, 7.5 fisheye, panasonic gx1, olympus em5.
Of course not all at the same time.
I buy, shoot, enjoy and sell.

This photo obsession and pixel peeping has gotten too me and I won't repeat it.

I see zero real life difference between my ex nikon kit and the em5 in terms of image quality.
If anything, the em5 is more consistent and reliable and the kit lens for aps-c were worse than their m43 cousins.
The epl1 was a step back as an intermediate kit between the d7000 and the em5.
The em5 and gx1, shot in jpeg and especially in raw have nothing to be shy next to typical aps-c kits.
