Are these good for MF lenses ? I know , all the lenses stabilised , etc ... But in real life , how do these work with mf lenses (legacy ,I mean)

Interessed also about experiences with E-p5 or e-pl5/6/7 ?

I have an Oly OM-D M5 MKII and it works very well, even using the pixelshift feature!

You will only need to set the Focal Length for the Image Stabilizer Function. For manual lens, OM-D E-M10 mk2 will be better among all the cam you listed.

Thanks ! Is the Panny GX7 a good alternative also ?

I am searching a platform to use for MF and AF also .The Sony a5000 has a worse system to use the magnifier than the nex3 (wich is more straight and quicker) and the AF lenses are pricier . The IBIS could help to keep the ISO lower than the sony for low light .

The IBIS on GX7 is much more inferior to those on Olympus cam.

Then go with it! A camera in hand is always better then one in one's dream... Wink

What I do like about Panasonic is that their sensors deliver great colors, better
then Olympus in my opinion Smile

The choice is yours, old models are always much cheaper than new model. E-M10 is still much better than GX7 when it come to image stabilization. If you use mainly manual lenses for 35mm film camera, it may be nice to go for an A7 rather than getting a M4/3 camera .

A very valid point Calvin, if Teo is using mainly FF lenses...

Right !
Still, the A7 is out of budget .
The mft camera would be mainly for AF I'd go for some fast primes 15/1,7 17/1,8 and so ,great for travel and going everywhere ....Sometimes I do't have the time/mood for manual focusing ....This year I used mostly the Fuji x20 ,a small handy great lens compact f2
For FF legacy lenses i'll keep the Nex3
