How Sharp is the $999 Olympus OM-D E-M5 vs the $6800 Canon EOS 1D X?

The Canon EOS 1D X is a full-frame DSLR which happens to have identical pixel dimensions in the short direction to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Micro Four Thirds camera, though those pixels are on a much larger sensor area (better for noise at high ISO).

So one has to wonder: how does a $999 Olympus OM-D E-M5 compare in sharpness to a $6800 Canon 1D X in terms of image detail? Now in DAP. Stay tuned for another comparison with one of the best Olympus lenses available.

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 holds tremendous potential. It might prove just the right fit for those unwilling to carry a bulky DSLR, and at far lower cost.
