Extreme Outdoors Review of OM-D E-M5 (Scott Rinckenberger)

I came across this totally by coincidence.

(Really. I went looking to a recreation of the Gettysburg Address, after seeing the "Lincoln" movie yesterday. Totally not photography-related. And the review I will link to, popped up on the right side column. I think YouTube Big Brother is keeping track of what I am interested in...)

Anyway, here is the link to a video review in real-life circumstances on the E-M5.

No pixelpeeping, but info and samples on shooting with the little camera in rough outdoors circumstances (landscape, adventure) and capturing extreme sports (offroad bike, mountaineering, etc):


It seems to me that the lens he used is the panasonic 12-35mm F2.8.

Maybe someone can confirm that. I don't own the lens, but it seemed a bit thicker than the 12-50 and it has a pronounced silhouette when zoomed.

(EDIT: I watched the video again and paused when the lens was clearly visible : it's the Olympus M-Zuiko 14-150mm, at least in the close-up.  Don't know if he used that lens throughout the shoot.)
