Micro Four Thirds vs. Full Frame Nikon (Fx) – Part 2

on
April 18, 2016

Image quality
This is a particularly interesting area as I have found each absolutely have their uses – I find the Olympus EM5 with Panasonic 20mm f1.7 to be a really nice camera for social outings where the full frame Nikon makes me look a bit ridiculous! I also find…
