Live clipping warnings and auto ISO in M mode

Since these are important to you and the E-M1 is out of your price range, you should look at the E-M5 as well as the GX7. I think the GX7 does not have these features (though it does have stuff the E-M5 lacks like onboard flash and better video).


  • articulating EVF
  • CA correction
  • onboard flash
  • better video
  • focus peaking


  • weather sealing
  • better IBIS
  • auto ISO in M
  • live blinkies
  • marginally better sensor

Both are fine cameras. I also second Anders's advice about the Samyang fisheye. It's cheap, easy to use, and very sharp.
