Fully understand you! For me is staying in m43 (with Olympus) or moving up to a Nikon Z-system, but I have the fear that the current Z-cameras are not quite at the evolutionary step with AF and of course the native lenses are missing. That will change over the next few years, but then I have to wait anyway. The EM1X mould solve a number of these things as it would get me a very capable stills and video camera and allow me to stay in the Olympus ecosystem. Not really cheap thoughI'm starting to understand why I like this camera, at least if it lives up to the rumours. If I upgrade from my GX8 bodies, I would want the best stills capabilities and the best video capabilities available with m4/3, or else there's no point upgrading. That would mean a G9 for stills and a GH5s for video. However, I would also like the build quality of my D2Xs.
I don't doubt that this camera can, more or less, match the Nikon pro bodies for build quality, and the rumours claim that it will surpase the G9 for image quality and be as good as the GH5s for video (Almost. The rumours say 120fps for 1080p vs. 240fps for the GH5s, and nothing about 4K 60p).
If that is the case, this would be the do-it-all body for me, and $3,000 is certainly cheaper than the combined price of a G9+GH5s. I could always question wether I need all this, and there's a compromise called the GH5, which is even available second hand.
But there's more, like 4/3 lenses. I already have two (Zuiko 9-18 and PL 14-50) that are not worth much on the second hand market (tried to sell them for a reasonable price for almost a year now). No other camera will be more suitable for those lenses than the E-M1X, and at the moment, I don't have WA and high quality normal zooms in m4/3 mount.
You see where this is heading don't you :ROTFL:
A side note to the video capabilities - from rumours I think this camera will be able to shoot 4k/60fps internal and 4k/120fps external
We will see ...
