I think it would be interesting to have people make an algorithm or flow chart of their preferences, in order of importance, in their camera buying decisions, and to compare them. I wonder where the screen type would come in after tallying all of them up?


Yes, it would be interesting.

The only major sticking point would be in certain situations one might find something is NECESSARY while in other situations, not.

For instance: I just bought an Olympus E-M1 MK II (used) despite having two Panasonic full frame bodies (both an S1 and an S5) as well as three Sony aps-c cameras.

So why an E-Mi MK II since it is a camera that is a bit older and isn't necessarily cheap?

Because it is for my son, who WOULD want a flip-out screen for vlogging / selfies (ruling out my Sony aps-c cameras), and would want great stabilization (again, ruling out my sony aps-c cameras).

It has COMPETENT AF-C, so it beats out Panasonic m43 bodies (although the AF-C is not as good as that on Sony aps-c bodies).

And it gets great colors in video.

So, effectively that E-M1 MK II is gonna "replace" my three Sony cameras, but wouldn't be a replacement for my full frame S-series bodies.
