Great camera

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 has one real dislike: its name is too long and complicated.

It's actually a great allround camera. Out of the camera jpegs are fantastic! With the 14-42 EZ kit lens the camera is so small it fits in every jacket; with the 9 mm lens hood lens the camera is like a real compact. I also own a Canon 5DSR but because of the size I very often take the Olympus with me.

Considering the size sensor and considering a modest 16 MP resolution it is incredible to see how good images look, even with the 9 mm Olympus lens hood fish eye lens results are remarkable. If you are used to a DSLR but you don't want these big cameras around your neck or breast, this is a real alternative, without losing too much quality.

The down side: noise becomes a problem in the higher ISO-ranges. The menu is somewhat complicated, it's a pity that the screen isn't fully movable. The electronic viewfinder is OK, but can and should be better and faster.
