I'm not so much into the high-res mode, but I'm not looking to bulk up. The G95 is a still a bite larger than the G85, so I am thinking about what it would be like to step down (in size) to the EM5iii.I have an E-M5.3. I can tell you why I didn't even consider the G95 when I was thinking about upgrading from my E-M10.2 - the G95 is considerably heavier and larger than the E-M5.3, and the G95 does not have hi-res mode. Both of those things would exclude the G95 from my consideration, although it is a very nice camera, for sure.
I have since then also bought an E-M1.3. Considering it vs the G95, they are about the same weight and size, but again, no hi-res on the G95. The G9? Yup, has hi-res, but then it's considerably heavier. And no HHHR. So for me, neither camera matches its matching Olympus model. Different strokes...
Well sort of. I have a G85, but my main camera was the E-m1 mark I (splash proof with TFT LCD viewfinder) and E-m10 mark II (non-splash proof with OLED viewfinder) until I got the E-m5 mark III (splash proof + OLED viewfinder). I bought the G85 because it had an OLED viewfinder, was splash proof, and it had sensor-shift stabilization.anyone here move from a g85 to an em5iii?
or test a g95 to an em5iii?
would love any real world feedback/thoughts
I added two things to my post. First the improved grip of the E-M5.3, and then I think the DR is sligthly better than G80. It feels like there is a little more to get from RAW in post-processing.Thanks. Comments especially on AF, AF-C and DR are especially appreciated! I've had the G85 now for a number of years, and I'm thinking of just trying something new perhaps.
For me the main concern is the viewfinder. The E-m1 mark I/II/III, E-m1x, E-m5 mark I/II, and E-m10 mark I all have a TFT LCD viewfinder. The E-m5 mark III, E-m10 mark II/III/IV, and Pen-F all have an OLED viewfinder.I’m curious, why EM5.3 over EM1.2? I can understand if size is a priority, but the G95 suggests that it isn’t. There have been some great EM1.2 deals lately, you could possibly find one cheaper than a 5.3.

The TFT LCD has distortions or is completely opaque when you are shooting in landscape (horizontal) orientation and view it with polarized sunglasses. If you shoot in portrait (vertical) orientation there is no distortion. While I can generally frame a shot with the distortion, it is rather annoying. I would not be able to manually focus with the distortion. I need to wear polarized sunglasses all of the time in daylight due to migraines.
The OLED viewfinders have no distortion when viewed in either orientation. One orientation is darker than the other, but you can see the whole viewfinder.
In terms of form factor, I do prefer the smaller grip of the E-m5's when I'm using smaller lenses, but I prefer the bigger grip of the E-m1's when using larger lenses.
