Yes it is certainly. I have shot with the OMD EM-5. The biggest difference is in dynamic range. I no longer struggle to keep the highlights under control. Then there is color depth. The a99 has a wider range of colors. Not to forget lower noise at high ISO. I am not convinced that the full frames have less noise due to the sensor being bigger or that full frame sensors just have much more R&D in them or something. The Xpro1 pretty much proved to me a cropped sensor can have low noise.

Then there is the DOF. Say what you will I just like DOF on full frames. I don't have to think about equivalent focal lengths and full frame just looks right to me.

Have not seen any answers to this. Can understand why. What I can't understand is why it is so important to prove that mft is above it's level. A nagging doubt that there are better things? Then so what? Mft is a miracle compared to what used to be. Walking around with G3 + 20mm, perfect in the city. But being obsessed with low light, night clouds, looking forward to smaller FF (with EVF), maybe fixed lens for best quality. FF don't stand still, check serious reviews of RX1.

Not thinking of my G3 as "mft", just a very good camera. Enjoy what you got!
