I am a current EM5 owner, but have been reluctant to pay the premium for an EM1 as I don't consider it to be much of an upgrade - specifically, the lack of AF-C.

AF-C performance is one of the areas where the EM-1 is supposed to be an improvement over your EM5.

I believe there is no direct comparison yet of the EM-1 and X-T1's AF-C performance yet, but it's also been said that the X-T1 is an improvement over other Fuji cameras in terms of AF-C.

I have the feeling though, that you're likely to be just as satisfied or dissatisfied with an E-M1 and X-T1 regarding AF-C performance.

And for action shooting the X-T1 lacks a number of features the E-M1 has, although they may be irrelevant to what you want (ex : direct AF point selection).

Is there a way for you to try them both ?
