Another false comparison from you , Donald. The Canon shot would be much better if you used the same 1/60 shutter speed and -1/3 EC, and had focused properly. You admit below that you didn't know how to use the Canon. Why imply this shows a comparison of camera body capabilities if one of the images images hasn't been taken properly?

dslr are hopeless at accurate af period. i processed the the 500 images the other pro took in the studio and the af was all over the place, why i moved to em5 cameras.
