Currently I'm pondering on my options on mirrorless cameras, which one to purchase. I've been rather happy about my E-P2 since it was launched, now it's lifecycle seems to be at it's end (due to heavy usage and not too kind treatment). Due to the fact that I've mostly used vintage optics on it and I really want to turn to the evil side of things (AF) I need to purchase glass as well as camera. So I'm wondering which one to get. At the moment I've been tempted by all of the below
Olympus OM-D, weather sealing, seems like solidly build (if it's anything like their E-5 then it would be perfect). Quality of images seems good. Problem is the same which I've had with E-P2, small sensor means that DOF management needs longer lenses then I would otherwise use and it does change the feel of things quit a bit (like taking portraits with 50mm at F1.2 or F1.4, which means 100mm in FF land, instead of 25mm lens or 17mm lens, both of which would be much preferred).
Fujifilm XPro-1, nice formfactor and it has killer looks
Also high quality lenses and nice colors. DOF management better then in m4/3 land but still not FF, close. This is about as large as I want to go with camera (I'm used to heavy dSLR:s and I'm not going back unless paid to do so, meaning I most likely continue to rent dSLR gear for jobs which need really fast focusing). Cons are that I would need to change my workflow due to RAW support issues with Lightroom + Photoshop, also there's no 35mm (FF) lens equivalent at the moment.
Then there would be the ODD factor, using the same money that would go into above systems into Sony RX1
but that would have to wait until real reviews start to come up so that all the quirks could be taking into account before purchase. If this would be the way to go, since I would most likely be happy with only one lens, if it is in FF body (meaning DOF management at relatively wide lens at portrait shooting distances) and if the lens is about 35-42mm wide. I was happy for years with only Olympus 35RC with 42mm true normal lens, if Sony could do the same with it's 35mm lens (which is my preferred focal length) then I could be happy with it for years to come, if all other things would be equal or better then on Olympus 35RC (of course in digital world instead of analog film world).
All the above with high end lenses to satisfy me would be in 3K ballpark (with wide lens, normal lens and accessories). With that money Fuji and Olympus would be more versatile due to wider lens selection, Sony would be more turning back to my roots kind of thing. Fuji looks amazing and it does have OVF. Then again I haven't been dissatisfied with my EVF on E-P2 so I would most likely also enjoy either Sony or OM-D.
Any ideas? Of course this is very personal matter of preferences, but if someone could have any thoughts with these things considered, I would appreciate them very much. Also if there's other cameras worth looking into, with similar prices and similar output quality in mind. All of the above cameras deliver wonderful pictures, just tad bit different from one an other
I did ponder a bit about DP2M which would be relatively cheap compared, but due to it being bad in lowlight situations and in high-iso, it's out. Even if I do LOVE the color output and IQ it has.
