If the E-M5 is the hottest mirrorless of the moment the Nikon D800 is certainly the most “discussed” DSLR of the moment. Both are hotsellers at Amazon (here is the mirrorless ranking and here is the DSLR ranking). The video on top compares the video quality of both cameras. Of course you really can’t make any final judgement based on a youtube video and that’s why I leave it up to you to make any conclusion.
Gulio Scorio (Click here) shot his first work with the E-M5 about an organization that creates awareness about craft and artisan beer: “The touch screen and the IBIS really sets this tool apart from anything I owned in the past and the fact that I can shoot some assignments with everything I need in a small bag is just awesome.”
Camerastuffreview (Click here) posted the full E-M5 test: “In many details you will find that Olympus has done it’s best to incorporate all the functionality a real enthusiast photographer wishes for. Buttons and dials are in general well situated, easy to use and also configurable via the menu. The super control panel very effectively minimizes the time you loose searching in camera menus for a specific function. The adjustable warning for underexposure and overexposure is much more intuitively to work with than a histogram. Too bad the camera makes a constant noise and that the play button is hard to reach.”
