| p.2 #10 · switching from nex to m43 because of better ~50mm ? |
I have the EM-5 and the Voightlander 25 f/0.95 and I'm VERY big fan that combo (though whether or not it's many $00s better than the Panny 25 1.4, or any 50mm equivalent is a perfectly valid question). I've never had a NEX, but every once in a while I toy with the idea of switching to NEX; thanks to ulirkft2 for pointing it out - looks very close to the EM-5 + Voight 25mm combo for m4/3.
There's a filter on the EM-5, key lime, that works as ersatz focus peaking. If the camera's set to raw, the JPG in this filter mode will be in "key lime", but the RAW file will just be a normal RAW. A bit of a pain, but more than worth it for manual focus.
Robin Wong's review of the EP-5 says that the focus peaking works well for manual focus still photography. IMO, this alone makes it worth choosing the EP-5 over the EM-5 for the manual focus shooter, if one had not already bought a camera.
