This is the best, all round, camera and system I have ever owned. I don't say this lightly, having owned and used in anger some of the best cameras around over the years (e.g., Leica M6, Nikon D700, Canon 1DsMkii, 5DMkii, etc.) but it's how I feel about it. Obviously, part of that appeal is how light, and compact the system is compared to FF DSLRs, but I'm shocked at how good the image quality is, and how good the native lenses are. The only area I can find any fault in comparison is high-ISO ...

Love this camera. Took a little time to learn the menus, but now I am a friend with this camera. It has become so easy to photograph now that I have programmed all function keys. Amazing sharpness and beautiful colors with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40 mm 1: 2.8 Pro, incredibly good lens.

I have been a solid Nikon shooter before this camera. I have used 4 Nikon cameras the last of which was a Nikon D800. I cannot say this camera gives the same pixel resolution as the D800 but when you put a good lens on it it is close enough. This also is my 4th micro 4/3 camera. I have started with GF1 (GX1, GX7) and now E-M1. I was always ok with the 16mp. The previous Nikon I had was a D700 and that was a 12mp camera, and I have even printed many 1m x 1.5m prints, and had really nice ...

I've had my EM-1 now for about 6 months and am very happy with its quality.  I especially love the bright viewfinder and being able to see how the photo will look before clicking the shutter.  The focusing is fast.  The camera has had a long learning curve but has been worth it.  The 12-40 2.8 pro lens lives on my camera most of the time.  Now I carry a small camera bag with extra lenses that is light and compact compared to my dslr and lenses.  I'm almost ready to let go of all of my dslr ...

I just picked up a used E-M1 and battery grip this morning, wow! coming from a series of four thirds e-620, e-30 & micro four thirds cameras including GF-1, E-PL1, GH1, and E-M5 this is revolutionary. the AF is blazing (Fw2.1) and with my four thirds 50-200SWD mounted via MMF-3 it is as fast maybe faster than E-30 certainly less hunting in low light/natural light indoors, i will further test it tonight with some evening Lacrosse under miserable park lights.  The abundance of buttons is ...

This is my latest Olympus camera, after beeing happy with E-M5. I am very satisfied with it and have so far hardly any real complains. Just for fun, it would be nice to be able to turn the screen completely to be able to make the popular selfies (of course, this is not a camera for this purpose). Will keep it and buy some new lenses, too.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a really good camera. With the new high quality 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens, the AF is a speed demon (Can't wait for the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens). IQ is good, especially when the lights are abundant and can even take on full frame cameras. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHT. The size and weight is small, the 5-axis IS is awesome, the build quality is great, the EVF is large and very useful, etc. There are so many reasons to love this camera :)
