ok...i think now i have to leave my decision until i hands-on both.....phewwww..........


I wasn't trolling around. I am comparing different cameras to find out which suite me the best as i am on budget. With the money i have, i can't make a single mistake. Moreover, I am stuck in a small town abroad with no shop i can hands on both the cameras until i get back to my country on july.Out of desperation, i can only do research online and finding out answer by asking. What else i can do ?? please be considerate.

I thinks this is a better comparison. Honestly, it seems like pentax is a little bit sharper....sigh...

Hi Laurentiu Cristofor, thanks for dropping by. Please do have a look at the pic by clicking the link that i shared. Do you think m4/3 can take as crisp as the pentax kx ?? i like m4/3 so much but the photos look so much difference between both to me which i would say pentax is sharper. Please advise me. thanks

For example, from most of what i have seen, say an image of an ancient building in P*eniscola(not sure how to spell it but i remember its taken there) taken by an old Pentax stD, i can see each and every brick on the building so clear & detail. For olympus, not to say its not detail enough but it just seems like it is lack of something probably i would say it looks like washed out a bit........i don't know how to put that in words but almost every sample photos i saw in flickr shows the difference quite obviously. Hopefully i am wrong and as you guys said it was not the proper way to compare it like that. phewww.

let me show you guys here :
this is by olympus em5

Hey guys.....these few days while reading the comments here at the same time i have been browsing through the sample photos of the Olympus EM5 and Pentax K-5(i assume pentax k-30 has the same IQ as Pentax k5) in flickr......Honestly i like Olympus Em5 very very much especially its size and design(appearance). But I didn't want to lie to myself that ......the IQ of Pentax K5 seems to be more crisper and sharper than Oly EM5. No matter how many photos i compare, been through, i still think that Pentax K5 took crisper and sharper images. OMG...!! i am really confused right now .....i really wanted Oly EM5 so badly but the Pentax's IQ keep holding me back...T.T

Seems like M4/3 can really fits me well..... but if i were to go for the best which is the Em5 ,with the money left i only able to afford 45mm & 20mm . Which means i can only shoot with primes for at least 5 yrs(before my graduation)<-----no financial ability. But with the same price, there's a bundle kit options come with the Panasonic G3, i can get 14-42, 45-200, 45 & 20. Do primes alone are enough ??

Yes Taurus, i love shooting primes, this is one of the main reason i take M4/3 into considerations because i have seen good reviews about 12mm , 45mm ,20mm and 14mm. I am currently on budget that's why i downsize my M4/3 camera options to EPM-1 so that i can get 45mm & 20mm lens. But i think it will ruin my low light photography as i will be shooting quite a lot of night event. So i guess now i have to really thinking of getting Em5. Anyway, do you guys think Olympus EM-5 comparable to Pentax k-5 or at least K-30 ??

Thanks Pinholecam. I am so surprised that you have rated them so close expecially in IQ. Since you have rated M4/3 that high, I think i have no more worries to go for it. But do you think your G3 can produce images as good as EM5 and other APS-C camera ??

Thanks very very much for your informative advises Davidson!! i think i have a rough idea of what are both of them capable of..... From what i've read and what i've got from all of you here, its proven that M4/3 are quite capable of what an APS-C does (other than the ISO issue) in addition to their size advantages, and plenty primes choices, i think my priority would be M4/3. But of course i would hands-on both before i make my final decision. Sorry to disturb you with another question, deep depth of field of M4/3, what does it mean by this ? How does it affect ??

Thanks very much for dropping by guys, since you have both M4/3 and Pentax, which would you tend to use more ?? And ... for the differences in term of IQ of both, out of 10, how much would you rate it ?? (the higher the rating, the less is the difference)

Users of Pentax and Micro four thirds, please help me out with my decision!! ... I can't decide whether to go for Olympus Epm-1 or upcoming Pentax K-30. The main reasons i consider MFT over Pentax is their size and the choices of prime lens available(i know currently there are not much but the 3rd party lens maker has joined the M4/3 alliances). But when i see the photo samples through Flickr, it seems like pentax took crisper and sharper photos than MFT does. But, from a few reviews which i have read, most of them said that MFT's IQ is much on par with current DSLR (including K5)...so i am very confuse whether which to get. Pentax does have plenty primes, but their best primes are way expensive. T.T

What i like about M4/3 : Size , prime lens , portability
What i like about Pentax : IQ , weather sealing

I emphasize on IQ and i manly shoot portrait and street candid

But i guess you must be using 55-300 for those wildlife photos right ?? the color intensity are so nice ...that is what i am worried of when posted in fb. I mean normally when the photos posted on fb their color tends to fade away. Did you increase the color intensity of the wildlife album?

@loco the reason i asked about whether is it PP or not is because i want to know how well is the color and sharpness originally from SOOC posted on facebook as i don't think i have time to PP each and every single photo that i have taken. Anyway those photos of yours perform very well, did you do anything on the color intensity ?

lonoise: If so, i can conclude that the color retention is quite nice, don't mind me asking, don't you feel that a few of them are little underexposed, did you do that on purpose ??

Ben_Edict: Hi Ben_Edict,Thanks very much for your comment. There's something i felt strange is that, i have seen plenty CANON and NIKON taken photos in Facebook. Canon seems to perform the best in terms of sharpness and color retention. Nikon seems to have faded in both color and sharpness. Probably this is just my observation but if its the fact then the variables seems goes to the cameras rather than the website right ?? (I have seen plenty of K5 in facebook too, it just perform so well but i have not seen much Kr that's why i need some help here)

Hey Kaiserz , yea, that's me ! that is my cousin's DSLR. From what you telling me, do you simply mean that those photos withou PP are much better than those which you have PP-ed in facebook ?? Mine profile picture is a sample of CANON 550D which is the colour, sharpness and overall IQ is consider acceptable IN FACEBOOK to me. Do you think Pentax Kr can simply perform that well if not better ? (i mean in facebook)
Would you please tell me which is the album by pentax Kr ??
