OK, that does make sense. I wouldn't consider myself an all-weather photographer, that's for sure. I guess it's also down then to which camera has the superior IQ, EM5 or EM10. How much difference does the 3 vs 5 axis stabilisation mean anything significant?

Like Paul said - I don't plan on being out in the pouring rain and a slight mist/drizzle won't damage most modern cameras (within reason).

As far as the 3/5 axis - I had the EP5 and EM5 (5 axis) and now the EM10 (3 axis) and the two missing axises are horizontal and vertical shift. Not really important for stills - more so for video. And the camera does do digital stabilization for video to make up for the two "missing" axises.

I took this the first weekend I had the camera at my grandson's second birthday. Now granted it was with the 14-42IIR lens (not exactly a long lens) but was very impressed with the way the video came out.
