One of the great things about shooting with a Sony NEX-7 or Micro Four Thirds camera is the ability to use just about any lens on the market. Not having autofocus in a lens is one thing, but without Image Stabilization, those adapted lenses can be tricky to shoot hand held.
The new Olympus OM-D EM-5 solves that by offering what they call a 5 Axis IS at the sensor (not the lens). Unfortunately in order to get the aperture working for my EF lenses to an M43 body, the expensive solution is the RedRock Micro Live Lens EF Adapter (seen here). Along with what could be the best EVF available on the market today, and all starting under $1K (body) this will be a very very popular camera. In fact it’s already at the top of the Amazon new camera list (seen here).
