Thinking about moving from MFT

Hi All,

I am a user of EM10 Mark ii [Using primarily with EZ Kit Lens, 40-150 Telephoto, Lumix 25mm 1.7 & a Sigma 10-20 using Viltrox EF-M2 adapter.]

I love the size of this system & its pretty nifty to travel with. However, recently, I am thinking about doing some semi pro work like Pre Wedding Shoots etc. That's where I believe, MFT systems begin to trail behind other formats. The Zoom lenses which can give shallow depth of field start to get big & expensive. I am wondering if a move to bigger sensor systems will make more sense?

For the amount I can pay for EM1 Mark iii [Very expensive in my country], I can get a Nikon Z5 or a Z6 for just a bit more. Oher choice is a Fuji X-H1 with the battery grip [Available for much lesser price, XT4 is expensive in my country].

My heart wants to remain with Olympus, but everything else says, it might not give best value now.

So I am thinking of following pros & Cons:

MFT [EM1 Mark iii] Pros:

1. Mind blowing IBIS

2. Lens remain small & light & economical [Mostly, unless I buy the Pro lenses which get a bit heavy on pocket & shoulder]

3. Nifty features like Live ND, Live Composite etc

4. Great build quality & weather sealing


1. Camera size has become very similar to FF Cameras [Rather FFs have become smaller]

2. Much less bokeh & high ISO performance

Nikon Z5/Z6:


1. A bit lower price in my country

2. Similar size as EM1

3. FF Sensor

4. Decent IBIS

5. Strong build quality with good weather sealing

6. Overall Image Quality


1. Less numbers of native lenses available

2. Much bigger telephoto zoom lenses.

Fuji X-H1



2. Price

3. Dual Cards

4. Good video

5. Weather sealing

6. Good collection of lenses.


1. Possibly, I'll start thinking that I should have gone for FF if I'm spending this much

2. Last Gen Fuji sensor.

3, Size isn't compact for APSC Mirrorless.

I'm not very interested in buying a Sony Camera for no obvious reason.

Is anyone else facing such a Dilemma?
