E-M1 having axis image stabilizer is the only plus against Sony A7. Even from a size point of view both are about the same.

We still have to see about the A7 lenses: the size, the weight, the price, and the performance.


Exactly right.  An EVIL system is much more than just camera bodies.  And a lens designed for so-called Full Frame - that is a 24x36mm - is generally much larger than one designed for micro Four Thirds.

Olympus will continue to produce mFT's and Sony will add these cameras to its already large range as they continue to try to compete with Nikon and Canon for the small but lucrative segment of the camera market that needs them or has the financial resources to buy them.
