I am curious as to that price difference. What does the Oly have which makes it more expensive?

Weather-sealing

Better build

Better EVF

PDAF on-sensor

I would add the Oly IBIS...and that you don't incur the repeated expense to include OIS in your lenses.

But I know nothing about Panasonic bodies. I started with Oly because of prior experience with their optics. ..but I own both mfr's glass.

I have a long history with Canon dating back to the film era and I suspect that my familiarity with the Olympus name back then had some influence. I was also a Canon and Olympus dealer at one time.

Both have their fans...there is no loser in this discussion.

Thanks for the interesting reply, Joe. I used Canon long ago but even much longer ago I owned every lens Nikon put out and had a lot of fun as well as good pictures. I think photography is much easier overall with digital.
