Hard to beat!
This is my first Olympus since I purchased the EMP-2. This camera more than meets my expectations. It feels very comfortable to hold. I like the speed, 5 axis, the auxillary flash and access. Purchased 25 1.8 Olympus lens and it is a winning combination. Excellent lens. Can't wait to purchase more lenses to go with it. I love the weather sealing and 9 fps. for shooting my grandsons basketball game. Don't let anyone to tell you that it won't shoot sports.

So far, So good!
I am a longtime user (still) of the OM 35mm System. I indulged in the OM-D, as my initial foray into digital was a bit of a let down. The OM-D E-M5 was easy to start using right out of the box, and I am pleased with the results so far, just using the automatic functions. The viewfinder and flash are very functional for me, and the retro size and styling make it like the original OM; a camera you can easily hold and carry in your hand. Will keep posting as I do and learn more. The newer E-M5 MkII sounds like a real step up, but this camera is a great deal and a great little camera.

A great camera.
I preordered this camera back when it was first released. I've been using it now for over three years with a number of different lenses and it's been amazing. It has never had any problems, it still works just as well not as it did when I first received it. Even years later I'm still happy with the image quality which was an amazing step up from my previous DSLR.

The perfect travel camera
Simply put, the OM-D E-M5 is the perfect travel camera. A little background on me. I've been shooting with a full frame DSLR for years and I was so happy when I discovered the OM-D E-M5 and made the switch over. My back thanks me. I'm not even that old but at a platform level mirrorless and M43 is everything you'd want in a travel camera for prosumers. ABOUT THE CAMERA This little guy produces amazing photos. Sure there are some drawbacks to M43 when it comes to depth of field and so on but for the trade offs in size and weight, this camera comes pretty darn close. The stabilization is amazing and love the quick focus. Travel is all about getting those quick snaps on the road and this does flawlessly in those situations. While the menu system is complicated for some, I thought it was actually awesome at doing everything I wanted to do especially coming from the DSLR. IMPROVEMENTS This wouldn't be a fair review if I didn't say areas that it can be improved in. 1) Low light - Where I could shoot comfortably with ISO 3200-6400 on my DSLR, it's not that great here. Its grainy and you just don't want to go there if you can avoid it. 2) Ergonomics - Love the small form factor but I did need the HLD-6 grip to make it easy and comfortable to hold 3) Max shutter speed - You don't think about these details at first but when you're in super bright situations, you just won't be able to shoot at f/2.8 because the shutter can't go any faster. So you'll en up stopping up to f/4. OVERALL Best camera ever (well until the MK2 and E-M1 came out). I bring it around everywhere now and love how it's compact and more importantly that it's not intimidating around other people. I love how people just think it's another point and shoot...except it's not. The M43 platform gives you so many possibilities with its massive lens selection and you can pretty much do everything you would want to do with a DSLR.

Amazing camera!
I've been an avid photographer for almost 40 years, and I've really enjoyed this camera. I've been using it for over a year now, and I'm still discovering new features and things it can do. It can be as simple or as technical as you like. My wife and young son can pick it up and take great photos in one several automatic modes, or I can use it with the more advanced features. Very durable and reliable! I've taken it on several hikes and it has had it's share of bangs and bumps on the trail, and it just keeps on taking great shots. The layout of the controls makes it easy to tweak shots on the fly. Highly recommended!
