Re: MFT, Fuji and NEX

Well the hair in particular is over processed and that's part of the Fuji effect I don't like along with the plastic skin tones.

In terms of AF speeds I'm sure you will find the EM-1 is fast enough at up to 11 frames per second. There is no doubt that you will lose some of the noise "advantage" that you gain from a bayer sensor and X-Trans.

The question is whether or not you can handle living with noise or not and a much lower ISO limit, of around ISO1600 max. With the 75mm F/1.8 that shouldn't be an issue, there shouldn't be a situation in daylight at F/1.8 where you should have to drop your shutter speed bellow 1/400th of a second, and you wont get any subject motion blur above 1/100th of a second for moving subjects anyway.

Unless you're shooting people running around mad as a hatter during the middle of the night, you shouldn't have a problem with the EM1. The next question then becomes whether you plan on capturing the effects of mercury poisoning on people in South East Asia.
