Reasons For

5 Reasons For
2% higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm X-M1 is a 16.3MP digital camera. That's 0.2MP higher than the Olympus PEN E-PL6 (16.1MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

75% smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Fujifilm X-M1 has a maximum aperture number of 22. That's 16.4 smaller than the Olympus PEN E-PL6 (5.6).
Hugely larger maximum memory card size Edit
The Fujifilm X-M1 has a maximum memory card size of 64GB, but the Olympus PEN E-PL6 is only an 8GB maximum memory card size digital camera (56GB smaller).
50% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Fujifilm X-M1 is a 920,000 pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 460,000 pixels higher than the Olympus PEN E-PL6 (460,000 pixels).
Ten more awards
The Fujifilm X-M1 has 11 awards from expert review sites, however the Olympus PEN E-PL6 has 1 award.
3 Reasons For
1g lighter Edit
The Olympus PEN E-PL6 has a weight of 279g, whereas the Fujifilm X-M1 is a 280g digital camera (1g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

360.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Olympus PEN E-PL6 is a digital camera that takes 360.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Fujifilm X-M1 only takes 350.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the Olympus PEN E-PL6 is 100% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Fujifilm X-M1 is 90% (based on 94 reviews).
