    I shoot with both DSLR and Micro 4/3. I recently got in to Micro 4/3 due to being able to share the same lenses with the X5.
    I bought a Panasonic GH4 and a GX7 and you know what? I haven't touched my Canon gear since. The Electronic viewfinder on the GH4 is utterly fantastic. Being able to see the exact exposure of my shot in the viewfinder before I trigger the shutter is so damn useful. I'm a convert TBH.
    However, it all comes down to what you want to shoot. If you want extreme low-light performance then Micro 4/3 probably isn't for you as it gets noisy above ISO 6400. Do you need more than 18mp for massive prints? Again, Micro 4/3 isn't for you. Do you want to shoot 4k video with all the controls and tools you could ever need? Then the GH4 is your man.
    Also, budget is a consideration.

    We shoot Nikon and Sony. Nikon D3, and 7100, and The Sony RX100 1 and 3. Looking at the Sony A7ii next. Have owned the Sony A6000, Nex 7, and 5 (aerial use). If your Sports or action shooting than most 4/3 or not the ticket. If your budget is good you need a true DSLR. The RX100 series for what I shoot for quick, easy non action photos, are amazing along with great video. The D3 is for our sports and racing days. I have never found the perfect camera but feel the RX100, and the future A7ii will get 75% of what we shoot.

    I've pitched my Sony A7II because of low light focusing, it sucks, bad, and the battery life is not all that and a bag of chips! (Many more reasons too) Went back to my NikonD750, spot on every time, battery life is too dang good!

    My understanding is the next firmware update on this one will give you 4k raw 444 at 120fps.......oh no wait a minute, sorry I was getting confused then with DJI.

    Absolutely love my Sony A7R II. I wouldn't so much recommend the other A7 models for anything fast-paced due to the lack of hybrid (PD) AF though.

    Went M43 for my most recent purchase, because I can share lenses w/X5. Haven't touched the dSLR since.

    Just the PEN EPL-7.

    Nothing fancy, but compact, nice to use, and does very well for the size and price.

    I have a 1DX and a 5D mark III. I would not even compare Sony to Canon......It's like comparing a Hyundai to a Ferrari

    I thought that would be obvious...how many professional photographers do you see walking around with a Sony camera?

    No need to get stroppy like everyone else here. Im a Canon man but you must admit, every review puts the Sony way ahead. All you people need happy pills. I'm not an idiot. I see all the reviews. Show me one where they say the Sony isn't the better cam.
