Played around with X-T1, A7 and E-M1... and chose...

Three fantastic cameras. I started with E-M1, sold it and then got an A7. Didn't buy an X-T1 but my son has one and I've been shooting with it quite a bit.  All three have a lot to offer.  Sheer IQ on the A7 is impressive but I found, especially indoors, that I often missed focus.  And the ergonomics aren't great.  X-T1 and its charming button/dial interface didn't wow me (though the IQ is brilliant) - surprising as I'm an x100s shooter/aficionado.  Any one would be a great way to jump into mirrorless (or step up from a lesser body).

Defying all odds, I went back to the E-M1. I've done that before with M4/3. What is it about this system?

My thoughts are here if you're interested (too long for a preview post):
