My upgrade from E-30 to E-5

I replaced my E-30 with a new E-5 and am very pleased with the new camera's handling and performance.
In my in-house tests I can see a very significant improvment in detail over the E-30 and about a one stop improvement in noise.
There are too many things I love about this camera to list, however one of my favorites is the improved MyModes selection capability. It is now first class!

Excellent Camera

The E-5 is a worthy upgrade to the E-3 and included very helpful new features and image quality.

excellent upgrade from e 520

have had an e 10 and e 520 in the past (still own them). the auto focus and dynamic range seem much improved relative to the 520. my 12-60 and 50-200 swd lens are much better balanced. with the weather sealing, i am no longer fearful of shotting out in the rain.

This product is so much more a professional camera

I'm so amazed at how many features that are on this camera!!! You can truly customize your photos in so many ways to make them the way that you invision them!! I love the live screen the most to be able to view my photo before I take it with the adjusted settings and to see how my photo changes such as WB, ISO, Aperature ect.....
The reviews that I read so far said that this camera did not have a lot of updates to this new model but I totally disagree!!! I love my e-5!!!

FROM OM1 TO E5 STILL THE BEST

THE ONLY SLR CAMERAS I HAVE USED ARE
OLYMPUS WHEN A NAT GEO PHOTOGRAPHER
SHOWES YOU HIS CAMER AND PICTURES YOU
GET TO SEE THE RESULTS FIRST HAND AND FROM
THAT POINT ON IT HAS BEEN OLYMPUS ALL THE
WAY. NOW WHEN I SHOW PEOPLE MY E5 THEY ARE
WOWED BY HOW BRIGHT THE IMAGE IS AND HOW MANY THINGS YOU CAN DO IN THE CAMER AND DONT HAVE TO DO IN POST. I SHOOT PART TIME
FOR PAY AND HAVE NEVER HAD A COMPLAINT FROM SMALL JOBS TO THE WHOLE SHOOT OF THE MAKING OF THE DARWIN EXHIBIT. I USE OLYMPUS LENSES
FOR ALL MY SHOTS FROM 7-14 TO 35-100 AND OTHERS.

The best camera in its class

I have owned and used an Olympus camera starting with my OM-1 film camera almost 40 years ago. I started the digital age with an E-410 and used that camera until I started shooting professionally. I still have it and use it as my backup and fun on the run shooter. The transition into the E-5 from the 410 was seamless with just a short adjustment to relocate the control buttons and dials. I am still growing into this camera and loving every minute of my growth. My art photograph has expanded as well as my environmental work. With this camera I can go from studio to the great outdoors fully prepared to get the shot.

E-5 is great in every aspect, no compromises.

E-30 owner who traded up to E-5, extremely satisfied. Happy with increased satisfactory ISO and noise reduction for low light shooting. Auto Focus incredible with the outstanding Zuiko glass. Colors and sharpness due to processor is amazing.

Rugged workhorse, high-quality images

This E-5 replaced an E-3. Work is product documentation, architectural, and fire department; hobby is nature, environment, etc.

The E-5 brings everything I liked about the E-3: extremely fast auto-focus, ergonomic grip and controls, rugged construction, in-body IS, and no worries in inclement weather. For me, the E-5 adds more accurate auto-focus in low-light, larger articulating screen, higher resolution, and video.

My lenses are all Zuiko ‘high grade’, the favorite being the 12-60mm. In real-life subjective comparisons to peers’ N and C models, the E-5 easily matches — and usually exceeds — for image quality. For outdoor night work, the E-5 does a great job auto-focusing, with minimal need to manually touch-up.

I used to use a compact video camera to shoot an establishing clip, helpful when piecing things together during image processing. With on-board video, the E-5 can do it without switching cameras.

Still using my collection of BLM-1 batteries without upgrading to the new BLM-5. Excellent battery life nonetheless.

Slightly faster sequential shooting and less noise at higher ISOs would be nice, but not a deal-breaker.

Overall, the E-5 is a great, rugged workhorse that can produce highest-quality images, even when shooting at night or bad weather.

Good camera but too expensive ...

Overall the E-5 is an a very good camera. The feel of the camera is just perfect. There are just a few things I though Olympus cam improve upon like low focus, faster frame rate, the 4 way button is too small and noise.
