| p.3 #2 · p.3 #2 · OM-D E-M5 or NEX-6 - Which would you pick? |
I just went through this decision at Christmas. I got my partner the OM-D, but advised her friend to get the NEX 6. Both systems are very good, and can serve very well but I do think they have different strengths. I got the OM-D for my partner partly because she shoots a fair amount of product photography and having good macro is important to her. For macro, I think the OM-D is significantly better. This may change when the new Zeiss 50 f/2.8 macro is released, but the Oly 60 f/2.8 macro is a very nice lens and not that expensive. For her friend, however, shooting portraits is her favourite application and she likes shallower depth of field. The NEX 6 for her seemed like the better choice. Bottom line both systems are great, but think about what you shoot as a you pick one over the other.
One other small point. Someone said the Panny/Leica 25 f/1.4 for the micro 4/3rds is an expensive lens. I don't think so, but that is always a matter of what one is willing to pay. I got one used for $450 for my partner, and it is a very good lens. At that price I consider it an excellent value.
