Re: E-M1 and Sony A7R comparison (warning - lots of images)

You had an itch, you scratched it and found out that there isn't thaaaat much difference in terms of real word usage. I did the same (but in the other direction) and now have no FF kit and a whole stack load of Olympus.

I would also say that, in my experience, some of the differences you are seeing is down to the Oly lens which isn't as brilliant as some of their other primes, it lacks contrast wide open, isn't as sharp as others and suffers CA when wide open. You can see this in the shot of your wife where there is a noticeable loss of contrast in the frame (could be because it was wide open, the flare or a bit of both).

Anyway, I love these kind of posts as they show the differences in real world shooting to achieve a similar shot, not having everything equalised to a non-sensical absolute.
