    Thanks for this information packed video, Giuilio! I’ve been thinking about switching to a Mirrorless, but have been so confused. I’ve been looking into all the different brands, but I keep going back to Olympus because of the in-body stabilization~~I have shaky hands :~/
    I would love an OM-D, but just can’t afford it. I really appreciate your point that the glass is more important and that a Pen would be fine, especially since I’m not a Pro. You also clarified for me that there are Pen Minis and Pen Lites. I couldn’t figure out what the different model numbers meant. It sounds like a Lite might be the way for me to go. Now I just have to figure out how much I can get for my Nikon D3100, which I might not have bought if i had known about Mirrorless a year and a half ago. So thanks again for answering some of my questions :~)

      Hi Elaine!

      Thanks for watching and commenting on video. Mirrorless cameras are tons of fun and so easy to use as well. I too have shaky hands! I think its my love of coffee and I get super amped when I’m about to shoot.

      People that know me say there are two Giulio’s – One when I’m not shooting and one when I shoot.

      I got a Pen Lite EPL5 and its quite nice! The in-body stabilization in the EPL5 works very, very well – on par with the OMD. Plus the EPL5 in chrome is super stylish which is important when I’m out. The camera becomes part of my look rather then looking like I’m a tourist.

      When I decided to sell my Canon I was so nervous about making the switch I waited a couple of months which cost me some $$ so if you want to sell do it either now or after the holidays when people are not expecting deals but I don’t think there would be much of a price difference if any.

      Let me know what happens,

      G
