Hi,

Is the original EM5 with kitlens still a good camera?

I have found one in good condition for 400€

And both are weather sealed?

Thank you for your time.

I think you can definitely get it for more cheap. I picked up mine for around $200CAD with cracked rear screen that was still functional in 2018.

It is not a camera you want to use if you need to rely on continuous focus for snapping action scenes, and the video quality is very basic (does not handle motion well). It will still produce lovely images, and the IBIS is great when you don't want shakey videos or hand hold taking photos in low light.

Yes, the weather can change to some light rain and you can be safe knowing that it won't immediately die. Just know that with old equipment, things like seals and tolerances over time change. So the weather sealing could have degraded over time.

I just like trying all sorts of cameras , but my soft spot is Micro Four Thirds.
