I’m new to m43, having recently made a move from Nikon DSLRs*. As such I recently bought an EM5 and have been enjoying it. But I have to tell you, as someone who has been actively watching the progress of m43 since the original EP1, the main thing that struck me as the newer models rolled out after 2009 was a seemingly endless amount of iterations with the tiniest of differences, along with the most overused sensor in the history of digital cameras -- that 12MP sensor which seems to have been used in every Oly body other than the current gen. Well I finally bought into the OMD, taking a little gamble that they actually brought something new, and it’s evident the gamble paid off. So you might ask: why would this guy, who skipped the earlier stuff, care about the older bodies? Easy. As with my Nikon days, I’m needing a second camera body. The EPL5 is too expensive at the moment, so I’m looking through the normal channels of used equipment: Adorama, KEH, Cameta refurbished, and so on. And through my research, what is being pounded back into my awareness is how every other Oly body has that same worn out and wholly undesirable (for me – don’t mean to offend anyone) 12MP sensor who’s noise levels above ISO400 reminds me way too much of my Nikon D80 for my liking. I'm just not going there, even when the EPL1's refurbed price has basically settled to a measly $100. Since I still have most of my Nikon glass, and since I programmed the EM5 controls to work like a Nikon, I’ll probably just pick up a small Nikon body – while being keenly aware this has a decidedly step-backwards feel to it. I guess what I really need is for that EPL5 to come down! Okay, not really sure where I was going with this, but the rant is now over. *Not totally true – I dabbled with an EPL2 for a couple weeks in 2011.
