The EM-5/GH3 sensor is better but not by a significant margin. If you take into consideration that the G5 is just 1/3 the price of the OMD, it's quite amazing!Funny how the body-only version is substantially more expensive. I would've been all over this if it only had the em-5/gh3 sensor.
:whoo: I got that exact deal!it really would have been an amazing deal if you could get the G5 kit + 45-150 for $359!
I have an E-M5 and the G5 and the G5 has its own charms. I would not hesitate to buy it again.I would've been all over this if it only had the em-5/gh3 sensor.
This is a dilemma we face in most segments of the camera market. Is "the best", with it's often only slight improvement, worth the usually significant upcharge?This is insane...How is it possible.
The G5 in my opinion is 80% of the E-M5 at 30% of the price for what I need, and really a dumbed down GH2 in terms of video quality (if not capability).
I have been slowing growing to like the G5's IQ, I shot some indoor ambient light candids at ISO 3200 (by mistake it was set that way) and didn't really notice until I zoomed 1:1 on my computer screen.
One stop separates E-M5/E-PM2 from G5, I'd say...

My only advice is not to buy a camera just because it's a great deal. Choose the camera you think you need then try to find a great deal on it. There are literally too many good deals to chase, unless you are flipping gear to make a buck.
