Why the Sony A7 Doesn't Crush the Olympus E-M1

M43 has the lens now with the 12-40/2.8 coming out next month.  Sony will be a while for small lens.

OTOH, if you got a bunch of Leica or other 3rd party glass you want to bolt onto the A7, you might go that way.

As a camera body, the E-M1 really looks like the best all around mirrorless.  I don't like what I'm hearing about the shutter noise of the A7/A7R.

You have to take the system view with these cameras.  The bodies are up for replacement every two years.  The glass better last longer than that.  I also wouldn't want to wait for a couple years for the glass I want today to come out.
