Re: Any current/former EM5 or EM1 owners considering a switch to XT-1?

I'm wondering whether to switch from an E-M5 to either an E-M1 or an X-T1. IMO the case for the Fuji is:

- Much better high ISO performance

- Better DR, especially at high ISOs, in DR400 mode

- Probably a better/more versatile EVF

- A larger sensor in a similar-sized body

Meanwhile the case for the Olympus:

- The world's best IS, built in to the body so available on every lens

- Lenses are much smaller than equivalent Fuji ones

- Much wider lens range, plus I already own two fast zooms, one fast wide angle and a very high quality macro telephoto

- GPS available via smartphone app

... In short, a difficult decision!
