E-M1 Review - Moved from the Lounge board

You can buy three and a half XZ-2's for the price of this baby, currently quoted at AUD 1,440 (GBP 830) body only.

But the styling alone is probably worth it!

I just found this. If you want styling & two for the price of the E-M1, then the Stylus 1 is the way to go!

For now I'm happy with the XZ2's F1.8 lens, albeit not right across its zoom range.

And you could have two of them for the price of a Stylus 1, mate!

As cheap as chips? Only kidding. The brighter lens on the XZ-2 would be at an advantage over the Stylus 1 for the wider angles of view & the quality is there too, which is why I was also attracted to the Stylus 1 because of what I saw come out of the XZ-2.

Re: E-M1 Review

The Stylus 1 is tempting.....

http://robinwong.blogspot.co.uk/2014...-1-review.html

Usual caveat - it helps to be able to take photos (and Robin is one of the better photographers/bloggers out there).
