I am a Sony shooter (mainly a7r ii) but find the longer lenses simply too big for travel; the new GM lenses even more so. So on a recent trip I thought I'd try M43 out with a used (but as new) EM1 together with the 12-40/2.8 pro. Quite honestly, it has been a bit of an epiphany, not just for the IQ but even more for the fabulous ergomics. For me, it is a nicer camera to use than the a7r ii. The controls are more flexible and intuitive and the shutter snick is a major improvement on that of the Sony. Of course, the IQ of the latter is clearly better, the raw files have much greater latitude and the low light performance is better as is the potential for narrow dof. But the mft files are fine for most purposes and the package weighs and costs a lot less. I have been particularly impressed by the build quality of the em1 body and the pro lenses and note that they offer a greater degree of weather proofing than the Sony. And the longer lenses are smaller and lighter. I've just added the 40-150/2.8 pro and it too is a gem. Current sensor technology is fantastic and is allowing mft to compete in the pro stakes despite its relatively small size and while my Sony will keep its place in my arsenal I am pretty sure that my future investment will be in m43.
