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.

And yet there are millions of sharp in focus images taken with DSLRS so either the camera was bad or the photographer was at fault. You really shouldn’t make a blanket statement that is factually inaccurate.
