Re: Is FF really better than m43? and why?

To put the question of whether FF is better than m43 in proper context, you have to specify "better for what?"  In terms of greater resolution with less noise--yes.  Dynamic range--yes.  Control of DOF--yes.  Basic photography to be printed small or displayed on the web--probably no.

The OP posted a nice portrait that shows off the fine picture taking qualities of his E-M5, but I can guarantee that if he took the same picture with a FF Sony RX1, the difference would be so striking that anyone could see it.  So the question really boils down to whether m43 is good enough, not whether it is as good as FF.  That is something for each individual photographer to answer based on his or her own standards and needs.
