Re: It's a personal choice

If I had the choice I'd pick the ep5 over em5. Here's why:


  • ISO 100 + 1/8000 shutterspeed. To me that would be extremely useful, it's not just a gimmick feature. I wish all cameras had this.
  • Add on EVF has greater resolution. It's bigger which I prefer. It also tilts although not sure how useful that is as never used.
  • Has the same IBIS and sensor as EM5 so therefore it keeps the best things from the EM5 IMO.


  • Has weathersealing. That's all you really lose with the ep5 right?

But in favour of the EM5 it's cheaper. The ep5 combined with EVF is priced too high.

I have a G5 which is better than both. Fully articulating screen and better grip but choice is no bad thingĀ 

Yeah, I'd probably go G5 or GH3 myself but am drawn to the new IBIS.
