Using  the EVF on this camera body is transformative.  I cannot praise it enough. I use it for all my 4/3 lenses and a number of MF lenses (Takumar, OMZ, Rokinon and Rokkors)I had acquired and was using on my E-30 and E-5 with an adaptor. The ZD 18-180 and 40-150 Mk-1 are now in regular use, so glad I didn't get rid of these classic ZD lenses

I bought this after having and using an E-M10 for quite a while. The E-M10 is probably my favorite camera I have used, and the E-M1 is even better in many ways. Overall, the E-M1 just exudes quality. Great materials, great construction. Although I don't shoot in bad weather, I do like the confidence of knowing the camera is weather-resistant. Finally, lots and lots of controls, really a shooter's camera! The controls and handling are very good, in some ways better than the E-M10, in other ...

I've owned my Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera for two years now, and it has been on many adventures with me. So I've written up a review, posted to my blog here: http://www.14degrees.org/adventure-photography-olympus-om-d-e-m1-mirrorless-camera-long-term-review/ Suffice it to say that the camera is almost flawless, and I am excited to see what the OM-D E-M1 MkII will have in store! The Olympus OM-D EM-1 in it's element.

I've used an EM5 for years, two EM1s since just after their introduction, and now enjoy an EM5 Mk2. Love them, especially with the incredible Olympus 4/3 lenses such as the 50-200 SWD and 35-100 2.0 ED. They're heavy; with the ED it is over 4.5 lb., but the images are well worth it. But while on assignment a couple days ago, the right neck strap lug on one EM1 detached itself. Great good fortune, it was in a bag, not hanging off my shoulder; the 50-200 SWD it was wearing would have made ...

My EM-1 is about to be sent for repairs, again, this time for a sticky shutter (2nd curtain? occasionally won't reset after taking a shot) and intermittently unresponsive rear dial. I purchased my camera in April of 2014 and as of today it has 37,532 clicks on the shutter. I shoot with it in all weather conditions and it's never been dropped or even been banged against something hard. Of course, you only have my word on that. This past August (2015) it needed to have a strap eyelet ...

Copied from my blog : For a long time, I wanted to post a review of the Olympus E-M1 and how it compared to the Olympus E-M5 I had before. However, I guess this is not relevant anymore with the release of the E-M10, the E-M5 II and the E-M10 II. Let me tell you the jump from the E-M5 to the E-M1 for me was quite significant, these are some of the major differences that affected my day-to-day use of the camera: (1) EVF with double the resolution, auto brightness, and auto-off when screen is ...

My oh my... the OM-D E-M1... their flagship camera... My first encounter with Olympus was using my Dad's E3 for my photography class... and my Olympus journey began... Bought a EP3 followed by the 25mm f1.8 as my first prime lens... Bought the E-M10 with the 45mm f1.8 to capture memories of my first baby girl this year... and boy I loved this combo... very light, very easy use... captured tons of beautiful bokeh-licious pictures of the little one... I've so many friends comment how I managed ...

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 ...
