Re: Thinking of taking the plunge on an E-M1

Hi there Ron!

I agree that the A7r ii is a game changer in some ways, but it will still require significantly larger lenses to see any benefit - an equivalent to a panasonic 100-300 would be HUGE - the other option would be using a shorter lens and then cropping, but you would loose most of the advantage gained by using a full frame sensor. I would rather have a 4/3 sensor with small light lenses, with a resolution of 16 MP still but even better low light focussing and high iso noise performance - after all I very rarely need all 16MP - how could I justify 42MP!

Cheers,

Ralph.
