i'm trolling around trying to decide between the 2 subject cameras. i want smaller and lighter (no tri-poding than my ex d7000.. (although xt1 takes APC sized lenses, so i'm not sure the xt1 will give me much of a size advance with an APC lens)..

The EM-1 is noisier than the Fuji.. but i'm wondering if the EM1 with its great stabilization would allow me to shoot at lower ISOs than the Fuji.. and therefore help to minimize noise..

i guess this is a tough question as probably very few if any people have tested this out.

Between the two the OMD is just a little more mature on a more mature platform. It's focus performance and features (like touch screen) are better. There are more lens choices. The difference in image quality is pretty small with APSC being a little smoother at high ISO's.

Having said that, I find my Fujis get more use. But when speed and focus accuracy are required I switch to the OMD.

Here is my post comparing 5 cameras.  FYI I have an X-T1 on order.
