    What about the 10 points to the em5 for the 5way stabiliser.
    Olympus wins by 10
    Also the ev step range of the em5 is better although the overall range is smaller. That make the nex the looser as the amount of change is more controlable in a usage factor. olympus wins by 30.
    But its marketing specs and does not ibnclude far better lenses and range of lenses on the e-m5.
