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 ...

No doubt - this is a nice camera. Well made and with lots of features. The sensor-shift image stabilization works REALLY very well. High ISO noise is better than you could expect from a 4/3 sensor. However, it is not on par with recent (and less so) APC-size cameras. Although the Dpreview OM-D review rated this camera very high for its low nose at high iso, I do not think that mine is so good in this aspect (maybe I am spoiled by my Pentax K-5). I see substantial chromatic noise at ISO 1600. ...

I've been a long-time user and supporter of the 43 format. If you look at my gear list of previously owned cameras you'll see a LONG list of 43 and m43 gear! (Embarassingly long... ;-)) While the size and weight of the gear has always been impressive there's always been concerns with two areas of the m43 lineup - the IQ of the smaller sensor (especially at higher ISO) and the AF capabilities, or lack thereof. As a landscape guy I don't care much about AF but IQ is very important to me. The ...

I was initially looking for the Sony NEX6 but the shop didn't have it in stock so he recommended me this baby. My wife took a few test shots with it at the shop and quickly said she loves it. I didn't like it that much until we took it home. I was totally blown away by the image quality and features. Very high quality & solid camera. Feels like a brick. The only thing i need now is a good lens. Problems: Slow AF was a bit slow with the standard lens. Don't like the feel on buttons - too small.

I am an enthusiastic amateur that has been using the Panasonic FZ150 bridge camera for several months. I am very pleased with the all round ability of this camera. It delivers some very nice photos BUT there is just something lacking. I suppose I'd say there was no 'punch' or 'oomph' in the photo's. The experienced user or pro would probably say it was lack of image quality or whatever. Anyway, I decided I'd look at the whole market and see what was about and suit my needs. I didn't really ...

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 ...

Have been shooting with OMD from the past two weeks and must say that this camera is a must have. Equipment - OMD- with 14-42 lens, Superb color, amazing image quality, was fun to shoot with. portraits come out stunning, check my macro shots below, really beautiful color reproduction I would have given 5 stars, but nothing is perfect. i have pretty big hands, but still fits nicely. Battery performance is good, but not great, i ran out of battery the first day i was shooting, but i had shot ...
