Ignace: Some background: I'm a proud owner of an old OM system. Bought my first digital (Olympus E-30) last year. Great camera. Ridiculously horrific ownwer's manual--pure garbage.

New to digital, I needed something that a human being could actually understand. Based on the garbage manual, I swore that I would never buy another Olympus camera.

Then, doing research on the Nikon D7000, I noticed the new Olympus EM-5. Based on the exhaustive DPREVIEW, the quality of the pictures is better than any APS-C camera available for comparison! (If I'm correct, the otherwise excellent review should have made this point clearly!)

So, I am seriously considering the EM-5. Before I hit my head against the wall again, however, I wonder if you, more experienced EM-5 users, could help me with some info:

--Is the Owner's Manual actually comprehensible, or another piece of garbage?

--Can anyone confirm that the Leica lenses used by the Lumix cameras are also "AOK" for the EM-5?

Thank you so much!

Sorry, it is Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 I have ordered (I was torn betw. those 2 lenses)

Ignace: I have Nikon D7000 (amongst others) and I do not think M5 is as good for a pixel-peeping high detailed landscape shot, printet out huge, as I often do (D7000 is also iso 100), and the D7000 is better for sports, but the D7000 is not pocketable, and the Olynpus M5 is = I ordered it with the Sigma 30mm, and now I can have a camera with me all the time in my pocket and that counts a lot for me
