Well, after a few days of thinking about it, I cancelled my EM5 order with Amazon and went ahead with the X Pro 1 and 35mm lens.... I know it's quite an investment but I have been reading all the reviews and impressions (good and bad) for the XP1 and decided to go for the IQ that this camera holds (supposedly).... I have been on the fence as to which system to upgrade to and was considering at one point the 5D MK II. I am not looking to replace my DSLR (7D) but something that is less bulky which will enable me to shoot more... and that is why I came to the m4/3 system in the first place. Better IQ, as you can probably tell, is my main goal in this purchase so time will tell if this new system will be able to win me over even with its quirks. I intend to still keep my E-PL1 but will probably sell of some of my other lenses... Oly 45mm 1.8, Panny 14mm 2.5 and the Oly 14-42mm II R to be specific. I will definitely give you guys an update as how this camera compares to the m4/3 system. Cheers.
