| p.1 #8 · Nikon DSLR Owners Considering An OM-D EM-5? |
I am a D7000 and D700 owner with some nice enough glass that does most of what I want it to. That said, I don't take it with me on every trip I make. I got into m4/3 when it came out, because I was attracted to the small form factor of the EP1. I have used several bodies since then, both Oly and Panny. As anyone will tell you, a camera is only as good as the system that supports it, and I think m4/3 is doing a good job of that. I Bought an EM5 recently (I got lucky and have had it since the week they shipped) and it, coupled with my 45mm 1.8 are just really a blast to use. No, it doesn't replace my DLSRS for action or really lowlight, but I'll be damned if I didn't wish my D700 had in body image stabilization like the EM5. The upcoming 75mm 1.8 is a definite 'Must Buy' for me as well.
I find that with faster glass, the Oly EM5 is more accurate with focus than either of my Nikon bodies with stationary subjects. IQ is good enough for most things. IBIS is just incredible to use with my old MF Nikkor glass too!
