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

Was all-in with m43 (EM5 then GH3 with the 2.8 zooms and 7-14 and a few primes).  I really liked it as a system, but I found their high quality lenses to be too expensive for their results and sensor IQ was good, but not fantastic.

During a FUJI sale, I was able to sell the GH3 + lenses get a fantastic FUJI XE2 with the array of lenses I wanted (except wide angle to replace the 7-14 at the time) and pocketed about $1500.   IQ (both lenses and sensor) was superior pretty much through the range and as a system, the overall size was similar.

The XT1 addresses the small niggles (no tilting screen, better CAF, focus peaking, better handling, battery grip allowing hand strap) I have with the XE2 and adds a bunch of other bonus features, so I pre-ordered literally the minute the link was active on Amazon and B&H...we'll see who wins
