Almost Perfection
My first major camera upgrade in years. I already loved my E-PL1 but with almost 80,000 shots taken I knew it was time for a replacement. My heart was set on the E-M5 and what an amazing camera. The setup is great. Tilt screen is ok, but I really do not use it. Super fast to focus from what I was used to and the capture speed is nice. As is the ability to work in less than ideal lighting. My biggest issue is not having it a week. While out in the field using it, the eyecup fell off and I lost it. It is sad I had to pay for a new one, and still waiting for it to ship. As I primarily shoot with it. I am taking an unwanted break from use do to this issue. If you buy one, buy an extra eyecup. Next month I think I need to order two more just to have them. Other than that Olympus made a great pro level camera that is super small. It feels like a toy in my hands. Battery life is nice and easy to change weather hand held or on a tripod without having to remove it. If your looking for either your first MTF, or an upgrade. The E-M5 will make you happy.

"No Regrets"
I've been a loyal user of Olympus Digital cameras and lenses for many years now and I must say that the OMD System is by far the best! The one thing that rings true for Olympus is the exceptional build quality and it continues through to the OMD series! My first system purchase was the EM10 which led to the EM5. All I can say is that I am totally pleased with the results! I recently developed Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands and this camera is a godsend! It's small, light and easy to use. All the buttons are in the right place and easily accessible! The Em5/Em10 has one of the most comprehensive feature sets built into it than any other manufacturer that I know of, totally customizable! I was very impressed with the clean images I obtain at ISO 3200 which match or exceeded my other former APS System.(Recently I sold it all off to buy lenses for my OMD's) Speaking of lenses, I have the EZ M.12-50mm, M.14-42mm ll R, M.45-150mm ll R and the M.45mm Prime. All are sharp with special Kudos to the 12-50 for it's macro capabilities and the 45 for it's outstanding sharpness.

First this is my first mirrorless camera. Coming from a Nikon to the E-M5 was a little strange. The over all size was what I first had to get over. Plus the weight of the camera. Both are a added plus. But having large stubby hands I ended up getting a third part grip. This made the camera feel more natural in my hand and being made of metal it added more weight which to me was a plus. The over problem I had to get use to was the crop factor. Over all I really like the camera and now I use it more then my Nikon. The Nikon still has it place in my equipment. But the go to camera is the OM-D E-M5. The real plus is you are able to buy addapters so I can add my Nikon lens's to the OM-D E-M5.

Excellent Choice!
I've only had one prior interchangeable lens camera, which was the EPL-2. I got this camera as an upgrade, and practically every single spec was way better! I got the two lens kit bundle, and I stick with the 14-40, which is a good all-rounder for what I do. The weight is great: slightly heavier than my old camera, but little ol' me can carry this around her neck and run around for an entire day with no problems. The camera's 'burst mode' is really great on this thing btw. If you do a lot of photography that has people jumping in the air or doing acrobatics, this is definitely a good choice.

Great Little Weather proof Camera
After I fell in love with the OM-D E-M10 and purchased Olympus Digital ED 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Lens that was was weathered sealed. With limited budget I wanted a Olympus OM-D with weather seal to it and the OM-D E-M5 solve that problem. Stabilization is great on this camera also. Once I got the hang of shooting with this little camera with the pro lens I find my self hiking with this one in the woods. This camera has been with me through some tough rain with my pro lens and get the shots I want.
