Re: EM-1 is great when you don't care about low light, image quality or cost

You know what: I don't care about the low light scores. I picked the E-M1 because I wanted a camera I would carry more and thus take more photos. I had a D300 and the decision I faced was to go up to full frame, with the attendant costs in size and weight or down to M43. Staying at APS-C was not an option, as Nikon had no pro-quality APS-C on the horizon and it made little sense to me to get a lesser quality body with the same size sensor as I already had.

If I had a D610, I know I could get more DR and certainly better low light performance, but would that matter at all if the camera stayed home or in the car? Nope.

So, yes, I am carrying my camera more and I am taking more photos.

You do what you want. I'm doing what I want.

If you don't care about low light, don't care about image quality and don't care about cost then an E-M1 is the camera for you.

f8 and be there

I care about image quality and it's plenty good for me. My clients are using my work and they're paying me, so I guess it's good enough for them, too.

And, by the way, I'm still making money from images I shot with my D300 and the image quality of that camera is inferior to my E-M1.

How are your sales doing?
