Excellent after I added a few parts
I preordered my E-M5 when Olympus announced the new camera and have been pleased ever since. Granted this review is after 3 years of pretty demanding use, and it's held up and preformed as promised. Most of my photography is back country/outdoor so having a system that can handle mild adversity was paramount in my decision to buy. Easy to pack, light, and excellent quality shots.The body was a little small in my hand but after I added the additional battery holder and hand grip the camera works flawlessly in my hand. I've added Pro Series lens now and I couldn't be more happy with the quality and versatility of this system.

More than I expected.
I have a EM10MK II and is a great camera, but the M5 with it's Magnesium alloy body, Weather proof and dust proof qualities, surpasses the M10 MkII, it feels more rugged and durable, I really like the separate SD slot on the side of the camera, and the locking battery cover, I wish the M10 MkII would have those features, the OLED monitor screen is awesome and clear and with the 14-150MM 3.5-5.6f tele lens it makes a perfect outdoors all around camera package. The best thing is the price, it was < than the M10MkII. I should have bought the M5 first. Well the M10 MKII stays for indoors use and the M5 travels with me to the wilderness of the outdoors adventure.

Like Add-On Grip System, AF can get stuck
Optional two-piece grip is necessary to comfortably handle the zoom lenses, but nice to be able to remove in two pieces to make more compact when a more basic travel size is needed. AF sometimes gets stuck in hot climates requiring battery removal. Olympus replaced camera once for similar issue and has ignored my requests to fix replacement. AF has worked better on other models from Olympus that I have owned.

I love this camera
This is by far the best camera I've ever owned. I bought it mainly for underwater use, but this camera has got me back into taking photos topside also. - Small compact package, with great retro styling. Easy to always have with you if paired with a pancake lens. - The amazing image stabilisation is a game changer. Shooting handheld shots at 1/30 and lower. - Great ISO performance - shoot totally usable images at up to 3200 or even 6400 ISO.

Excellent Camera
switched from Canon Mark 5 and get just as good, sharp, color correct images as before at a lot less weight. In the field the light weight and size make it very carryable. I like the 5 axis stabilization and find it helps me by 2 stops. Mirrorless means no recurring dust problems on mirror which requires constant cleaning, especially in the field. The controls available on the monitor are extremely helpful and the buttons and settings are just right.
