I have S1R. One main reason I pick S1R over S5 was the EVF, I love the EVF on S1R.

Thanks. I'm sure the S1R is better in a lot of ways, but size/weight was important to me. Comparing the S5 to my G9, the S5 is about the same size but definitely feels more substantial. I'm just dipping into FF after quite a while with m43, and it's going to be interesting.


I love both FF and MFT, planned to keep both. The S1R body was heavy indeed. For smaller size and compactness, I would pick my E-M1.2 with some zooms or primes. For travel, my favorite pick would be E-M1.2 + 12-100 F4.0 and 45mm F1.2.

A few days ago, I picked up a Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN lens, which is surprisingly light and compact for a FF!
