There is nothing like an Olympus camera

I have been an Olympus fan since the original OM-1. I appreciate their quirkiness and the enjoyment they provide in use. The OM-D EM-1 is the easiest to use so far and, as you'd expect, provides the best results. So, while I find it hard to be objective about Olympus cameras, I have to say that I bought this camera refurbished from Olympus. When it arrived it had the yellow-green spot issue described in many on-line postings. I returned it to Olympus who fixed it with no questions asked. I can't say I expected this level of service on a used camera and was pleasantly surprised.

amzing camera with best in class IBIS

EM1 is an amazing camera, it's feel natural to grip within my hand and the controls are within reach. The camera responds fast to inputs and very sturdy (I've drop it a few times on the floor with cosmetic dents on the body and the camera still functions without an hitch)

The image stabilization is just magical that I'm not afraid to shoot still subject under low light condition. I refuse to buy any other cameras without build-in stabilization now since I got spoiled by the EM1's image stabilization.

looking forward to EM1-markII

Why the OM-D E-M1

To say that the OM-D E-M1 is a good camera is a bit of an understatement. Do your homework, read your reviews and do web searches for images created with the camera and you'll find that the days of Canon and Nikon being the only smart choices are over. 5 axis image stabilization cant be understated (especially if you have less than pure expert photography hands like myself). The camera is also insanely customizable, giving you the option to assign the options you choose that YOU use most often in a variety of buttons and dials. The quality feel is definitely there and weatherproofing is a really comforting thing to have. But mostly, the most perfect image in the world means nothing if you left your bulky camera at home. I love the size, it's just a great combination of full spec performance and "please take me with you" portability.

The best M43 at good price

I purchased OMD-EM1 along with the 12-40mm f2.8 pro lens. This package outperformances the Sony A7 II with 28-55mm kit lens by big margin. Buying a camera is just like buying a car or a computer. There are so many choices and combinations out there. You need to know what you need and pick the best the combination that suit your need. For me, I need a camera to take indoor pictures of my kids and record video of their fun times. Before I purchased the Olympus, I also tried the Sony A7 II and the Nikon D750 with 24-120mm kit lens from my friends. The IQ from Nikon is the best of the three. I like the JPEG color especially the auto white balance selected by the Nikon. However, the Nikon combo is almost twice the weight of the Olympus or the Sony. And, the live view auto-focus system is a joke in the Nikon. You just can not record video using the AF with the Nikon. It keeps hunting and make loud noise when it is focusing. As for the Sony, the auto AF is pretty good even though some reviews say it is not very fast. For me, it is as fast as the Olympus in most of my shooting conditions. But, it is not accurate. Even though the AF points confirmed that it focused at the right point, it did not when you view the photo in the big screen. The slow kit lens came with the A7 II also lets it down in most of the indoor shooting conditions. To me, OMD-E1 is the best to my need. It is fast, light and always capture the right moment even in the not so optimum conditions.

Best mu43 camera I've had

I love my EM1. I've owned numerous other bodies but this one feels perfect in my hands; so perfect that I've just ordered another one. This camera has travelled with me to Kenya, Ecuador rainforest, the Galápagos Islands, and Myanmar and has provided me with thousands of great shots. The only thing I'd improve on this camera is better low light capability. It does everything else just perfectly.

Great camera, but miss articulating screen

Got this to replace my E-3. Good upgrade, but the screen tilted and rotated on the E-3 making it MUCH easier to compose pictures than on the E-M1. Function lever on back very useful. HDR button very nice, but why can't I get an in-camera HDR RAW? Why doesn't E-M1 have in-camera panorama like other cameras? Radio flash interface needed for this to truly be a professional camera.

Outstanding

I have been an Olympus owner for several lifetimes now starting witn an OM-1.

My Olympus digital life began with the 7070 and from there I worked my way through several E-1s, two E-3s and an E-5. I love them all and appreciated the incremental improvements they engendered.

So with the OM-D E-M1 (demerits for whoever came up with this moniker) I was expecting the same incremental improvement, but was surprised and pleased with what seemed like a leap in ability.

Obviously taking cues from the OM-1 this relatively small package--makes the E-5 seem huge in comparison--does more things, and better, than any E-x.

Other than a case of EVF burn, it is a brilliant camera.

LOVE my OM-D E-M1

I purchased my first interchangeable lens camera in 2011 - the Olympus EPL5. I was hooked (having found my muse)! I upgraded to the OM-D E-M1 recently (primarily to work in some astrophotography but also to have a second camera) and I love, love, love my new camera.

The image quality is amazing, the camera quality is amazing, and the creative features are amazingly fun. As a self proclaimed serious hobbyist, I am still learning but - with the Micro 4/3 system it's no problem to take it with me wherever I go (and I do!). Thank you Olympus for blazing the trail with exactly what I was looking for in a camera.

Came back to where I started

Started my photography interest way back with Olympus and migrated away to explore other options, and now I am back and glad too. I just jumped from another mirror less brand and to say I was not happy is an understatement.

I am now an extremely happy owner of a E-M1, so glad I made the move. The build of this camera, the AF speed, fit, finish, lens selection and quality, image quality, IBIS, etc are why I came back to Olympus. The other thing I noticed , bodies are less expensive, and the lens'es are really affordable compared to the competition. The E-M1 is packed with features, and the future firmware release will add more life to the camera (not that it doesn't have enough).

currently I have this paired with the 12-40/2.8 and will add soon the 40-150/2.8 and 2 fast primes (17,25,45 or 75). The TC and a flash or 2 should round it out. Thanks Olympus!!

Excellent camera overall

The image quality in 90% of lighting conditions is excellent. Great colors, very sharp. The camera is mostly very easy to use, lots of features packed into the camera and available via buttons, so it takes a little while to figure out how to get at all of the features. The pro lenses are fantastic, razor sharp throughout the zoom and aperture range.

The body is small, and lightweight, but has excellent build quality. The buttons have a smooth, high quality feel, like they will last a long time.

I would suggest that Zuiko reduces the damping on the 40-150 pro lens, though, since its hard to zoom all the way in or out quickly, since the damping is so heavy. For most needs, its fine, but for sports, if you need to follow players moving towards the camera, and you need to zoom out all the way very quickly, you have to apply a lot of torque to the zoom ring, which could cause you to miss the shot. The lens does have excellent sharpness and overall image and build quality.

The mirrorless focusing is not quite there yet, though, compared to old DSLR technology. On the sports field, sometimes the focusing mechanism goes unstable, i.e. the camera hunts back and forth very quickly, several times, and does not converge, i.e. the camera can't find focus. In lower light conditions, it happens often enough to be more than an annoyance. I was able to get the camera to hunt, fail to focus, then take a photo far out of focus in lower light. This never happened in good lighting conditions. I would like to compare focusing behavior with larger sensor mirrorless cameras, I have not done that.

Overall, great camera, would recommend it for most kinds of photography, except low light, and certain kinds of sports.
