In Topic: Experiences with Olympus e-pl5? Versus OM-D EM-5?

02 February 2013 - 08:23 PM

The image quality and auto focus speed are crucial, and they are the same in the elp5, as the em5.

The only difference is view finder, and controls.

Given you are happy with the composing on the LCD, (as I am too), the only difference is the controls!

Making adjustments in manual mode is not so bad. Just requires 1 button press, to go to adjust mode, and then the up or down button to make the change.

It is not bad, for such a big price difference.

Ikelite makes a housing for lx7 at a very reasonable price. Even includes hard wired strobes, which is ultra reliable, and extends the battery life, due to no need for using the onboard flash.

Cliff, if you are worried about flooding the em5, and that is the only reason for not housing it, get some good equipment insurance, such as from divers alert net, and you will be covered!

No reason to put up with a second rate, and different camera, when you have the one you love, already!

Great pictures!

At such a wide angle end, 24mm equiv, traditionally, one would want a dome port, to get good optical quality.

Can you see any down side, of using the 12-50 behind a flat port? Full res, If you pixel peep at the corners, is there any chromatic aberration?
