I'm grateful for EVERYBODY's work and input at CameraLabs.
And… I would be so grateful to hear what STANDS OUT to YOU as most significant advantages, and/or your thoughts if you happened to care about what I claim to care about (below). Please, everyone, chime in on ANYTHING you think might tip the scale…
I may well be a philistine, but for photography, I (for one, maybe the only one
) LOVE the articulated screen. I have some physical issues, AND my early forays in with the flippy screen helped me SEE things in so many new ways. (Enough defensiveness, sorry.)
So, if you had $XX and a choice of one new camera and one lens (and happened to love the flippy screen despite its certain disadvantages for photo...), would you go with
a) Olympus E-5 wZuiko 12-60 2.8-4.0 or
b) Canon 60D w17-55 2.8 is/USM
I've narrowed it down this far: either way, I get flippy scr. + a WAY BETTER THAN KIT lens (both arguably best in class, according to Gordon and about everyone else).
I've read reviews far and wide, comparing everything. Everybody is disappointed with both in lots of and different ways (in terms of body).
If I had to say what's most important to me, now, I'd probably go in this order (roughly):
Photo over video, low light capability w/o flash, best, sharpest, most honest overall picture, fastest-most accurate autofocus speed, image stabilization (in body on Oly combo, in lens in Canon combo), functionality of use with flippy screen… don’t care about video, art filters, in cam processing…
Can someone tell me WHY the OLY is still 12 bit? Does THAT matter?? (esp. given lens quality?)
Okay, please, fight fair, keep it clean, and know that I would be most grateful for your thoughts.
Most Sincerely, and best wishes to you all,
