i've never heard of a "white balance slot" what do you mean by that?

It looks good, but how does it compare with my Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.4D? Should I be selling my Nikkor and buying this guy? I don't have my high-end Sonys any longer so that comparison is not as relevant for me.

BJN: I just got and EM-5 and really appreciate this guide through the odd configuration defaults.

I can't say I'm impressed with Olympus documentation or the interface design. It's baffling why the touch screen is so minimally functional for adjusting camera settings. The "out of the box" experience is exasperating. Why isn't the camera update utility on the software CD? Why does USB-enabled registration start out automatically with the camera model and serial number, but then force you to enter that information manually on the next web pages? Why use a custom USB cable? Why is a small camera saddled with such a large charger with a bulky AC cord? Why does using the tiny flash require removing and stowing three different plastic caps? I'm hoping that the longer term EM-5 experience will prove to be worth all the initial annoyance.

BJN,
You aren't really expecting answers to all these questions are you? The only suggestion I can offer you is to your first question statement (2nd paragraph): get David Busch's book on the OMD. It's been sold out for awhile, but a new press run has restocked many of the shelves - you'll probably have to mail-order though.

Is there any way to set the camera to display the review images (just taken) on the LCD when the EVF is locked on?

hellotmr: Hi there,

I was just wondering if anyone can tell me how I could change the shutter speed to a slower rate, without compromising the quality of the photo?

I tried various options and while at times I managed to get slow shutter speed, the photos are distorted in terms of colour (photos become brownish somehow) and becomes very blurry and pixelated.

I'm still new to this camera and I don't think I found anything in the manual (unless I missed it), so any advice would be great!

Thanks,
Aileen

hellotmr,
I'm not sure I understand your question, but I can think of two methods: (1) with the camera set to Aperture preference, turn down the exposure (+/-), and you will see the shutter speed decrease, but by far the easier method is (2) set the camera to Shutter preference and turn down the shutter speed. (This is such a simple answer that I am questioning my understanding of your question.)
