Why I Switched to Micro 4/3

My Ultra-Light Kit: Olympus E-M5 with Olympus 12mm f/2 and 45mm f/1.8 and Leica 25mm f/1.4

In body IS has been touted as a great stand in for optical IS for many years,  However, in practice, these systems often have fallen flat when it comes to stabilizing longer lenses.  The IS can’t shift enough to counteract the movement of a really narrow field of view, and as a result becomes largely …

Olympus E-M5 vs Panasonic GH2: Dynamic Range Battle

So at lunch today, I finally got a chance to test the Olympus E-M5 against the Panasonic GH2 in dynamic range.  I chose a high DR area, and then decided to see how they did when overexposed 3 stops and pulled back, and underexposed 3 stops and pushed back. All shots were taken one after …
