What camera?

Hello everybody.

Please help me. What camera is better for digiscoping ?
Olympus OMD ED Mark 2
Sony A 6000
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7
The pros of each camera are, for Olympus image stabilization, for Sony a larger senzor and for Panasonic the 4k video capabilities. Also focus peaking is a big advantage for Oly and Sony, I don"t know if Panasonic has it. Cons would be for Oly and Panasonic more noise at high ISO and no touch screen for Sony.
Tell me if I am correct. So what camera should I buy?
Thank you.

Lumix G-6 has focus peeking, so G-7 should as well.

Check out for their camera reviews and studio comparisons. Its a great tool for comparing image quality in both Raw and Jpg formats. They will also have all of the specs regarding sensor size, fps, video, etc. Its a wonderful site and may help you decide. I use the Sony a6300 and prefer it over the Panasonic GH4 for digiscoping.
