    Here's Thom's take on the E-M5 as this year's best serious MILC:

    Whatever you think of TH, here's the comment that struck me:

    "But here's the thing: it takes great pictures, JPEG or raw. The reason I keep picking it up is that last bit coupled with the wide lens selection that also produces great pictures."

    I don't have an E-M5, but I feel this way about my E-PL5. This statement, more than anything else, explains why I think mu43 has come of age as a system.

    I tend to agree with that quote. I firmly believe that my E-P3 matches or exceeds the Canon 40D that it replaced. That, and I can afford much better quality primes than I could with my Canon. :cool:
