Canon equipment is surely excellent and I have no complaints, however here in Qatar most places require permits before shooting.
Having a permit is quite easy, however asking for permits every time you wanna go to a park or to city coastline isn't convenient at all and having security agents telling you no professional photography allowed almost always at the worst moment and having to show permit is really annoying.
MFT is considered as "small camera" and it will spare me the hassle
If you do go that route, I'd suggest a Pen-F and an E-M1 Mk II or III. Great combination, and obviously, you can share lenses between the two.
I find the E-M1 has the same feel as a Canon, RP with the added grip, or, even more so, the EOS R, and the images look very similar from a rendering PoV.
The Pen-F is great as a small carry-around-at-all-times camera (which I do), with the added advantage of allowing for exchangeable lenses. Basically, it replaced my Canon G10. It is slightly bigger thna the G10, but for me the possibility to indeed change lenses, just makes it a bette roption, apart from the much better IQ. I also love that little Creative Dial on the front. I use it a lot, especially for B&W jpeg output.
I also acquired the MetaBones EF speedboosters and adapter, so I can use my older EF lenses with these cameras, and that too works very well.
I love these two cameras both ....
Kind regards, Wim
