Bought this as a backup to the E1 previously reveiwed having moved from Canon DSLR's. Certainly on a par with the E1 and the results are outstanding with my Panosonic 45-200 Mega OIS lens, another great piece of kit but more of that in another review.

Many words have been printed about this diminutive camera and you've no doubt read all the technical discussion. But what can you DO with one? Ergonomics: Oly were always pretty good with ergonomics - more shooting, less fiddling and the EM-5 is great, given the size restraints. It is very easy to use once you note where everything is. It is WAY ahead of the Canon, Nikon and Sony mirrorless cameras in this regard.. The "big threeā€¯ marketers of camera gear, in THEIR mirrorless products, keep ...

I have been using M4/3 Camera since E-PL1 and it has been great journey on using mirror less lens.  I recently got E-M5 body and 5 Axis has been  huge  thing in this body. I have taken some great shots at low light.  ISO sensitivity is day difference over E-PL1. Dial setting on the camera can be little bit tricky when you compare to E-M1 but with grip on my E-M5 I'm quite happy with function of it. 2nd big thing is the splash, dust proof design.  I also use new Pro lens  12-14mm F.2.8 and it ...

The camera is now 14 months into use. Quick and handy camera that excels in versatility. A few extra batteries handy. Video quality in particular by the excellent stabilizing a winner in my eyes.

Size is a Blessing Thank goodness Olympus have taken us back to the size of the OM-1. I was so sick of carrying around big cumbersome DSLR's and lenses that weigh half a ton, that it was a breath of fresh air when the OM-D came out. It is small and convenient to use, gives superb picture quality and looks fantastic, especially in silver. I already had an E-P1, so I knew the quality of the Olympus kit. Virtually without hesitation, I bought an OM-D. Pleased? I am over the moon with the ...

I used the OM-D E-M5 for a time now and decided to send it back. Why? There are several reasons that make the high price-tag questionable. Yes, the IQ is very good. I was impressed with the high-detailled and vivid coloured photos. And the high-ISO noise performance is impressive for a 4/3 sensor. However I found AWB horribly unreliable. Shooting under fluorescent light gave me yellowish pictures - I shot RAW but this bothers me with extra work in PP that shouldn´t be necessary. My old GH1 ...

Almost too small physically coming from a DSLR, but it's not bad once you get used to the size. If you have big hands you may never get used to it. The camera takes serious setup as it's default settings are terrible! If you came from an SLR you will want to find a good site to set it up as the manual doesn't help much. The image quality is incredible. This camera was voted the number one camera of 2012 by DPReview site users. The out of camera JPGS are second to none and many people have ...
