Why?
Did you want 11fps with the mechanical shutter?

When I shoot at 10+fps I would rather use the electronic shutter.
That is less wear on the mechanical shutter, because I expect to be shooting THOUSANDS of frames.
I shoot HS sports with a D7200 at 6fps, and I shoot about 25,000+ frames a year.
If I go to 12fps I would end up at around 50,000 frames. I would rather not be putting that much additional wear on the mechanical shutter.
Most of the time i would not want 11fps but for fast-flying small birds the lack of blackout could help but I would not want to risk the rolling shutter effect on background objects.

Why? Two words: Rolling Shutter

Stabilized sensor meaning every lens is stabilized, 1/8000 mechanical shutter and 1/32000 electronic shutter, 80MP high resolution images, 30fps with pre-burst capture, Live Bulb for active sensor readout during long exposures. I could go on.

There are far more features in the E-M5 III than there are in the Z50, which is essentially a mirrorless D7500. So while it’s easy to dismiss the camera for having a “small sensor”, it’s far more technologically advanced than the Z50’s is.
I had in-body-stabilizer (IBIS) cameras since the first generation of Sony A7, and went along with them until A7R3...to Z6, so I know and I cannot live without IBIS. I picked Z6 over Canon EOS R because of that.
For me, no sense to get a E-M5 at that price instead of Z50 as a second/third camera while someone is having Z6/Z7 and a bunch of Nikon lenses.. Two different systems and yet, not pocketable sizes, regardless how technology it's equipped with :) .

Those who want to shoot fast-moving people, birds or animals without blackout really should look at Sony's A9 or new A9 II......
Have Sony started making cameras
