Olympus vs Panasonic
1

I bought an em10 ii last year as a light weight supplement to my FF Nikon system and have  been using this camera much more than I expected. It is a great little camera with good ergonomics.  I initially used it with the Oly 17 f/1.8 but found the lens a bit lacking. I then bought Panasonic Leica's 25 f/1.4 and 15 f/1.7 and liked these lenses much more than the Oly prime. I then wanted to add a quality zoom and ended up with the new PL 12-60mm. So I have this interesting setup where I have and like the Oly body but seem to prefer Panasonic's lenses.

I am still happy with the em10 ii so no need to change anything soon. However when I decide to move to a new camera in the future, do you recommend that I stick with Olympus or try Panasonic (because of Dual-IS and some purple fringing issues with using Panasonic lenses on Oly bodies)? How different/better/worse is the ergonomics of Panasonic cameras coming from Olympus?

Thank you.

Dima
