    Has anyone seen anything comparing the IQ of these two cameras?
    I'm interesting in upgrading my G5 and while 4k interests me, so does the IBIS. However I heard the Oly is using the Panasonic sensor, but I'm not sure which one?
    I regret not buying the em5 mark I the first time around....

    Image quality is close enough that I wouldn't consider it at all when comparing the 2 cameras. Far more important are things like the ergonomics (G7 IMHO), IBIS (E-M5), video (G7), focus system (G7) etc.

    You have a lot of Panasonic lenses. I don't think the P20 benefits from the DFD focusing, but the others should focus much faster on the G7 when shooting motion. I don't know what sort of things you shoot, but the P35-100 on a DFD enabled camera gets pretty close to DSLR focus speeds for motion and tracking. Its not quite as fast as a pro level Canon or Nikon, but its a big jump from non DFD cameras.
