Re: Compared OMD EM5 vs. 70D with which lenses?

I only use u43rds lenses on my Olympus OMD EM5. I also no longer have an STM lens so I can't compare with one. In my experience and view, the u43rds lenses are very small compared to my Canon lenses. When I received my Olympus 45mm f1.8 I was surprised at how tiny and light it was. My Canon 50mm f1.4 is a tank in comparison and my Canon 50mm f1.4 is a nice small lens by Canon EF standards.

I find BIF photos difficult to do with my Olympus OMD EM5. My Canon with Canon 400mm f5.6 is heaven for BIF in comparison. One reason is obviously that I only have a Panasonic 100-300 OIS to use for BIF. u43rds clearly needs a fast focusing 300mm f2.8 or f4. A 300mm with the Olympus EM1 may change all that.
