I am considering to buy a new CSC camera, which serves my hobby of photography. Right now, I own a Canon 400D (yes, an age old model :)) From the feedbacks I have seen on several forums and videos, I have narrowed my selection to one of Olympus OM-D E-M1 or Sony A6000 or Fujifilm X-T10. All of these are somewhere within my budget, right now (considering Fuji is always expensive) I don't intent to do wildlife photography, or any sports photography. Do you guys have any suggestion, considering these 3 cameras?

One knock I have seen against the Olympus is an EVF flaw. Evidently a green spot will appear in the EVF if used outdoors as the problem is evidently caused by exposure to the sun. From what I can gather this is something that happens with ordinary use and not something extreme. Here is something more about it on DPReview: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53896750

If lens selection is important then you will want to go with the Sony as there are more lenses available for it than there is for the Fujifilm. The sensor size on both cameras are nearly identical (23.5mm x 15.6mm for the Sony and 23.6mm x 15.6mm for the Fujifilm). However the Sony has a 24 MP CMOS sensor as opposed to the 16 MP CMOS sensor in the Fujifilm camera.

This - http://www.digicamdb.com/compare/fujifilm_x-t10-vs-sony_alpha-a6000/ - explains some of the more technical details and differences between much better than I can.

Another review that might be worth reading can be found here - http://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Alpha-a6000-vs-Fujifilm-X-T10 - It gives a side-by-side comparison and some technical details as well.

If I were choosing based solely based on what I have read I would go with the Sony A6000. Maybe someone with much more knowledge than I about any of these cameras will chime in and be able to help.

A year ago, I was in the same situation and ended up purchasing the Sony a6000 and happy to report I enjoy shooting it everyday, more and more. Aside from the technical aspect, I recommend getting a hand on feel of the camera. You want to be comfortable while shooting. I do a little of everything, portraiture, landscape, street shots, and fast moving kids. So far the camera has not disappoint. Another important consideration is the lens selections and optic quality. The bottom line, you as a photographer need to be confident/comfortable with your gears and how you would use them to your capacity. Happy snap!

Thank you Kenrivers! :)
I bought a Sony A6000, in August. A bit late to respond here :)
I have thoroughly enjoyed capturing with this camera, especially while hiking in the mountains.
