I shot the Olympus E-M1 today, putting down the Leica M Typ 240. And after a 20-minute struggle to get through the insane number of menus, I had the camera configured to my liking (less a few things it seems it cannot do).
But shooting it for a while, I soon found that the fun factor and efficiency factors are so superior to the Leica that I was loathe to put it away. Not the least of which is vastly superior EVF, which makes the Leica VF-2 look like a dull and blurred child’s game gadget. I’ll have more to say when I return from my trip, but in short—no, 16 megapixels on Micro Four Thirds is not very desirable for this type of shooting but it sure is a fast-shooting camera: aim, press button, done. Certainly many types of photography that don’t demand high resolution are appropriate for that.
