| p.2 #4 · Another Question re OMD EM5 vs Fuji X Pro1 / XE |
Why did you sell your OM-D Rob?
There wasn't much that I didn't like about the OMD but I just like the X-Pro 1 more for my purposes. I still have a DSLR that I use primarily for landscapes and occasionally sports and wildlife so my smaller system is used mostly for travel, family events and anytime I want the lighter setup.
I found that many of the things that I liked about the OMD ended up not being that important to me like weather sealing, AF speed, and tilt screen. On the other hand, with the features/functions that I use most often, I prefer the X-Pro 1 implementation -- OVF, size and placement of the controls, and the traditional dials. And the overall build quality and handling is just superb.
Finally, the OMD IQ is really good and more than adequate for me but there is just something about the X-Pro 1 images that stand out to me. The jpgs are also really good and the auto white balance is the best I've seen.
So, other than the small buttons and not so great menu system, I really can't complain about the OMD. It is a great camera and if I thought I could have kept track of three systems I would have kept it!
