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 three” 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 ...

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 ...

OK, all of this is quite subjective, so take it for what it is. That out of the way, I've never been happier with a camera. Quite a few years ago, I thought Olympus was on to something with their 4/3 camera system: small (properly proportioned) sensor means small body and lens, and when they came out with in-camera image stabilization in the e-510 I was interested enough to buy in. It was a pretty nice camera, easy to shoot with, but not the greatest high ISO IQ, nor the best autofocus in ...

I own the Panasonic GF1, Olympus EP-3 and the Panasonic GX1, and several prime lenses. While the lenses have gotten really good, I felt the M4/3 format was not really progressing much after its early promise, both the EP-3 and the GX1 were disappointing to me. This camera finally delivers on this promise and in my opinion is the perfect M4/3 body in almost every way. PROS: The censor's overall and high iso performance, really great manual controls (love the two top dials), almost complete ...

If you had asked me to buy another olympus camera after the E3 fiasco I would have told you to bog off. This little wonder is so good I have sold my entire collection of Nikons and all other cameras. I just stopped using them as they were very heavy. Olympus have shown just a glimpse of what the future holds for people who photograph for pleasure. They held nothing back with this camera and even included art filters for those of us who hate photoshop. The image stabilisation is better than ...
