OM-D User Sample Images & Impression

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to post some sample images which I took using the E-M5 a couple of days ago. Let me point out here that I am not creating a debate or somesort but am just sharing my experience with the camera.

First of all, I came from a Nikon system way back 2007. I sold all my Nikon gears 2 months ago and was ready to quit photography forever. I was getting lazy to carry all the heavy gears around. That was my reason or alibi. But came out this little tool. Admittedly, I got excited. It was a totally new system for me and based on the technical sheet, the E-M5 seems impressive. I ordered one like a crazy boy and got it a last week.

I basically shoot landscapes, nightscapes, and some macro (reverse set-up). Anyways, Im stopping the chit chat now and go about the images now.

My impressions? Yes it is a very good camera. Cant imagine that it can produce these kinds of images based on its sensor alone. Shooting with the reverse set-up with IBIS was a breeze. Took me half the time getting the right focus compared to when I was using my Nikons.

I need to shoot more landscape and nightscapes this week. Both these images were taken at 430pm using a ND400 and CPL. I had to trun on the long exposure NR because hot pixels were present, just like my D7000. Remember that I am using the 12-50 kit lens here. I am hopeful that when I get my hands on a 12mm f2, things would be different.

Hope these images help those who are deciding to get one.


Macro - E-M5 / Reverse Ring / Nikkor 18-55 Kit lens / E-M5 flash

Scapes - E-M5 / MZuiko 12-50 kit lens / Hoya CPL and ND400

Infrared - E-M5 / Mzuiko 12-50 kit lens / Hoya R72

Note: The kit lens has significant hotspot in the center of the image. Using f7-f14 for my test, I found no substancial result in minimizing the hotspot in camera. I had to remove it in post processing.


Nikon D7000 Ricoh Caplio R7
