Re: EM1 better than Sony A7(as a System)?

I would not worry so much about  the high iso performance of the EM1. I'm seeing very good results. Mainly I'd say it comes down to wanting the resolution, DR, color depth and decreased depth of field that full frame has, at the cost of limited small lens choices.

If I were happy with a couple lenses and I took mostly environmental portraits and landscapes and wanted the highest possible image quality in a light package, I'd consider the Sony with the 35 2.8 and maybe the too expensive 50mm 1.8 and hope they come out with a small wider prime. You could do a lot with those two lenses, and use a light travel tripod.

But it has a loud shutter, and no IBIS. I think I'd have to try both cameras to know for sure.
