My new "everyday" camera
3

The OM-D E-M5 is now the camera that goes everywhere with me. The image quality rivals my Sony Alpha 580. It makes me think twice before I bother with the Alpha 850.
So many features are a joy to use. My favorite is the touch screen. When shooting on a tripod, put the OM on a 2 second delay, tap on the LCD where you want the focus, and it does the rest.

I worked with and loved the original analog OM's for many years, and I really do feel that the OM is back and better than ever.

I would have given this Camera 5 stars if it had a swiveling LCD rather than tilt only.

Problems:

A bit cramped button layout, (I have beefy hands). So many customizable features....so little time.
