Hi i've searched some direct comparisons on the net but could find very little, so i'm asking for suggestions here. I've had a G3 for almost two years and overall i'm reasonably happy; in fact i bought it used, had it for a while along with a Canon 5D and ended selling all the Canon stuff (with economic considerations included). But now there are a few things annoying me and i was wondering if an E-M5 would be more appropriate now that it's getting cheaper. I would not consider an E-M1, out of reach. Here goes a list of what i like and what i don't on the G3: Like: - IQ (overall) - Size - Articulated LCD (closed) - C modes on dial - Blinking highlights right after shot in VF (sadly, only in burst mode) Don't like: - HATE the push wheel (i hate it!); i want two separate controls for aperture and exp. comp. - LOW iso noise; at base iso, i like cleaner results. - No iso 100 (base 160) - EVF (pretty crude, low DR) - No fulltime manual focus (AF override) unless AF lock - Small and almost flush buttons - Slow write times, small buffer - MF assist goes black on low light - Shutter shock (i do really notice it) - Small battery - Cumbersome to move focus point (using VF, not touch screen) I think i would LOVE the ibis on the E-M5; of course i know it has base iso 200, two separate controls for aperture and exp. comp. But i would really like for somebody who actually have experience with BOTH cameras to enlighten me on the details and real world experience between them. One thing that worries me: if i end up buying used, how would i check with the seller regarding the cracked LCD frame issue? Other things to beware of? Thanks a lot for the suggestions and opinions, Daniele.
