Beautiful set David! I understand your thoughts on the E-M5. It is a nice small package to carry when you want small and the image quality is excellent. But these photos are excellent and on a trip like this it's good you achieved results you are happy with.

Don't know how cold it was for these pictures, but if you still needed gloves at sea in this Antarctic summer, the you definitely were ahead using the E-5.  The OM-D is a terrific little camera and does have a better sensor but I find it almost impossible to use effectively wearing gloves during the 6 or 7 months one has to, even here in much less polar Saskatoon.

Beautiful pictures, btw.  Your iceberg shots (#9 and 10) even remind me of Sebastiao Salgado's magnificent image of one for his GENESIS shows and book.  And that print sells on Amazon for $17,000., enough to finance another trip!
