It is the software that is the problem. These models will be forgotten by Asus after 8 months, which means no new Android OS updates, no security updates etc.

peevee1: What's the point? Cheaper than the lens alone, these days you can get E-PM2 (with IBIS and better sensor and EVF support)+14-42 +40-150, and that 40-150 is faster, sharp and 70g lighter and focuses with the speed of light.

I had OMD E-M5 and sold it after my wife bough EOS M and I had a chance to compare IQ - Olympus was rubbish, strangely noisy/grainy even at ISO 400, also depth of field due to smaller sensor was much worse at the same F-stop than in EOS M.
Of course EOS M has it's own problems, but IQ is not one of them.

Not mentioning that I paid for the OMD $1.5k and new EOS M cost my wife $300.

Yeah...very nice, but still I don't understand why two Sigma lenses I had (100-300/4EX and 10-20/3.5-5.6) were rubbish. Both were extremely out of focus, actually only one side of the image was out of focus...

Rockaw: I think that people are missing it when they complain about the $1399 price point. It's a bargain.

Ming Thein has a very interesting post that shows how the OM-D E-M1 is most correctly compared to the Nikon D4. Same resolution, similar build quality, similar focus speed and accuracy. The D4 has much better video modes, but seriously, nobody buys a D4 to shoot video anyway. It's a still machine.


He also proves that the 5 axis IS is better than anything that Canon or Nikon has done in the lens. His gallery of 1 and 2 second handheld images is pretty amazing.

I know there is a lot of love by the fanboys for FF sensors (I make my living with a 5D3 - so I'm not one of them) but from what I'm seeing, I could use the new E-M1 to replace 95% of the shots I make with the 5D3.

Here's the most telling comparison:

I bought OMD-EM5 and just one month later I am selling it.

I don't understand that hype around M43 cameras. For example I can see noise on ISO 200 images. EOS M's (which I own) ISO 200 is noise free. I don't even mention bokeh - EOS M is much better here due to a bigger sensor.

Regarding lenses, there are a few good prime lenses, but come on, 450 bucks for 25mm/1.4? Even Canon 50/1.4 is cheaper! And there is also much cheaper Canon 50mm/1.8 which is also great, not mentioning 40mm/2.8 (also superb lens, for only $200). I was looking for a good travel zoom lens, and there is one: Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8, it costs only...$1300. I can buy Canon 24-105/4L IS for LESS. So where are those high quality and cheap M43 lenses?

AndyHWC: they should make it available to non-google+ users. Why force users join Google+? Too many privacy settings to check. :(

By default all your pictures are visible only to you, so no need to check any privacy settings. Google+ is not Facebook, so no need to worry.

love_them_all: They should make one for the iPad.

He can't because he's lying. There is no such application for iPad and iPhone.
