I wonder why they didn't wait until they could get ahold of an E-M1 to do this? I guess, image quality-wise, it won't matter all that much as the E-M1 and E-M5 are a push.

I hadnt seen the new SOny head on like that and my does it and EM5 look like twins.. on first glance if Alpha didnt have the sony label on it you'd think it was the EM1.

The one big negative on the Alpha is the shutter noise.. that thing is super loud. Its another interesting cam .. FF at the same size as an EM1 and nearly the same price. Battery life on all mirrorless seems to be 350 shots even with the bigger cams.

The full frame is definitely a plus in a camera that size. The current downfall is the selection of FF lenses that will fit this camera. Secondly, is it worth nearly double the price of the Olympus? I think not.
