Hi, I have really enjoyed reading this forum. So much so that even though I have mainly NEX gear I thought I would give the OM-D a try. I am really baffled. I have heard all this talk about how APS-C sensors are better than 4/3 but the OM-D has so far taken better shots than all my other cameras.... These include the NEX-6, Pentax K-5 II, and DMC-G5 (recently sold NEX-7 so I could not test that one). I was sure the Nex-6 would take better photos because of the sensor but they are less sharp and more noise than the OM-D or the G5 all using the 30mm Sigma F2.8 to test (only lens I had in common to both systems). The Pentax was pretty close to the OM-D IQ but I liked the Olympus colors a little better. I have spent the last few days wondering if my NEX-6 is a bad copy or if this larger sensor size IQ is just overhyped. Based on online reviews like CNET and others I would have thought the NEX should edge out the OM-D??? My rankings so far on IQ are (Jpegs only!): 1. OM-D (sharpest and best color) 2. K-5 II (sharp and good color) - used 50mm F1.4 Pentax lens. 3. DMC-G5 (not as sharp as OM-D but good color - much better than the G3 I had before) 4. NEX-6 (least sharp and overly saturated color) I also recently had the Fuji XE-1 but returned it due to bad focusing. Colors were in line with the OM-D when using the kit lens but it was not resolving as much detail when you pixel peep - possibly due to the focusing issues. In short I am really amazed at the quality of the OM-D jpegs and the amount of detail the sensor is resolving. The OM-D just gives me a smile when I use it. I love the retro look and build quality. P.S. The DMC-G5 kit lens is complete junk. I tried it as well and it seriously degraded that cameras image quality. If you own one do yourself a favor and buy a Sigma or better Panny or Olympus lens....the difference is amazing.
