dvcrn Posted January 6, 2016 Share Posted January 6, 2016 Before you yell at me for creating a second post with a lot of questions, wait a moment . I just want to make sure that I don't make a mistake. I am in the market for a new camera system. I was over-ambitious and started with a a7s (because it was shiny and new) which I realised I couldn't really use so I ditched it before the a7sII got announced and am now looking for something cheaper and not as high-end. So to get to the point of my question why I am asking if mft is still worth investing into: - I am starting from 0. No body, no lenses or any of that kind. - Sony made huge improvements in video. The RX100 family has superb image quality and the inclusion of IBIS and LOG in most of their new cameras clearly show the direction Sony is going. Heck, according to rumors the a6100 (that could come at the end of February) will probably have 4k, IBIS, LOG and more!- APS-C sensor. I am nowhere close to call myself experienced in the field but I know the math: Bigger image sensor = better quality and low light performance. I would assume that this translates very well into video- Full frame potential. If I start with a a6100, I could step by step invest into full frame lenses and at some point swap the body with an a4s or whatever exists at that point. For MFT, I would lock myself into the system and would need to ditch my entire equipment if I want to switch. I have my eyes on the EM5II or GX8 with a combo of 25mm voitgtlander and an oly ultra wide angle lens but at the same time hesitate if I should wait for the a6100 announcement. So I was wondering about the perspective of the readers here. What do you think the future of m43 will look like? Is the smaller sensor a horse I can bet on or should I wait for sony's new toys?
