Re: Anybody come to or return to m4/3 after using Fuji?

I recently picked up a GX85 with the 2 included kit lenses, the PL15 and a used P12-60. The purpose was 100% for a travel kit.

Observations vs Fuji (I went through 6 bodies, still have an xp1 and xe2).

Pros:
Smaller though heavier body
IBIS — major pro
Smaller, lighter and more versatile lens portfolio. 12-60 + 15/1.7 is all I need for travel.
Better build quality and appears quite a bit more rugged
Better battery life.

Cons:
Not as much fun to shoot with. More a small computer while Fuji is more camera.
IQ. Frankly I don’t have the same experience those who view IQ as comparable. I see more DR and better color in the Fuji files. The Fuji jpegs are superb (important for travel where I end up editing very few raws). GX85 jpegs have far less headroom for edits.

I’ll likely remain with m4/3 for travel. But this experience has made me happy I didn’t sell my Fuji lenses as I’ll likely pick up a new body at some point. The Fuji is just more fun to shoot with.
