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 :)

I have had my E-M1 for about four months now and love it. I work with Canon pro gear for a living and have for over three decades and still like that stuff too (although I'm no fan of the 'new' CPS). But I find using the Olympus almost like a vacation of sorts. It's very capable, very easy to carry, has some really superb optics (I love the 12-40 and the 75 1.8) with more on the way soon (the 40-150 is on order). It has excellent IS built in, a rear LCD screen that is great for low and high ...

The b ackground Being a Nikon user for the last ten years I faithfully bought a Nikon V1 on sale early in 2013 to complement my full-frame D600 setup - just something to bring along on small trips and to used by non-technicals as well. Quite surprisingly I started to use the V1 more and more, and the D600 less and less. D600 had superior image quality, but the V1 had "good-enough" IQ and a stunning fast AF - perfect for tracking small kids in motion. The V1 and its 18,5mm gave me some ...

As the reviews say, this sensor really does handle low light/high ISO better than its predecessors. Just to put the ISO at 1600 or higher and take useable indoor photos on A or P (my preferences) is a delight. It's so great that they figured out how to do that with such a small sensor size (so retaining compatibility with earlier cameras and lenses). Really fast repeat rate too. Feels good in the hands - was complimented by a Nikon FX photog for the ergonomics. Also, and importantly, the ...

Thought I would do a quick review of my OMD-EM1 after owning it for a few months and most importantly, having recently used it in anger as my main camera for my 2 weeks holiday in Crete (over 700 shots taken). Normally, I would take one of my Nikon DSLR bodies (Either my D800 or D4), and whilst their quality of images is pretty much unsurpassed and stunning, taking either of the bodies away with their inherent size and weight disadvantages (especially combined with full frame lenses), as well ...

Have had Nikon 600, 610,7100,7000,5100 and 5200 and assortment of lenses. Decided I wanted something lighter with excellent image quality. I bought the E-M1 with the 12-40 and never regretted it. At the tender age of 73 went on a very steep walk up at Dorrigo (NSW) and hardly felt the camera weight at all. The results at the waterfall at the bottom of the walk were excellent. Unless you are a pixel peeper IMHO I don't think you need full frame. Graet camera and great (12-40 mm) lens.

I just bought the E-M1 brand new yesterday for $1249 at Future Shop. Man, this camera is fast and very well built. The handling is superb, not too light, not too heavy. My little finger sticks out, it has no grip at the bottom, maybe I'll buy the additional grip later on. Amazing customization possibilities, I still have to study further to my needs. At the natural setting, the images are very sharp and have slightly less saturation than most previous models I've used in the past. Maybe a ...
