Best in Class
Because Olympus made such a fun camera to use, I owe them a review. Its already been said but this is the best most fun to use small format camera made to date. I know because I have wasted money on others !!! Of course it has a few dings but nothing to hurt its top ranking in my book. All you have to do is look at the build of this camera and then compare with others on the market today. The rest is simply fun to use and good pictures. The one major con is its going to make you spend more money on great glass just to see how good your pictures can be. Even if you don't go for the better glass you will be amazed at the pictures the cheap lens can produce, I know I still am. Keep it up Olympus, you have clawed your way to the top of this class camera.

It's a great everyday camera.
I did a lot of research before I bought this camera, so i was very excited when I order it. It is a camera that I am going to grow into, and right now the options seem limitless. Besides being ridiculously gorgeous, it is compact and smaller than I expected. The body is approximately the size of my iPhone 5 in it's case, and about twice as thick. The only real con I see is the battery, which you can pick up extras for a reasonable amount. You should probably go ahead and order backup batteries because once you start shooting pics, you're not going to want to stop. People complained about the grip and placement of the buttons, but I just haven't found it to be an issue. I have bigger hands but it works fine for me.

Great Camera without wifi
Olympus OM-D E-M5 is a great camera. I got it before last Christmas with a camera&lens bundle deal at less than $1000. I bought it with the 12-50 mm kit lens, which is also a convenient all-purpose lens. I am very new to photography, but this camera is quite easy to get my hands on. I usually use the P function to take pictures, so I only need to adjust the white balance depending on the outdoor weather condition or indoor light condition. It almost always gives me satisfied pictures especially when I am taking pictures during day. The 5-AXIS is a very useful function too. Sometimes when light is not so good, I could still take satisfying pictures by handheld. The only regret is EM-5 does't have a build-in wifi, which makes it a little inconvenient to share photos right after you took them. You will have to download everything to your computer after the day. Maybe a wifi card could kind of solve the problem. Another tiny regret is the keys, wheels and buttons of EM-5 are not as good as it successors.

Love this Camera.
Been looking at getting back to the Olympus system as it was my first 35mm ILC. I had an OM 2000. When the price dropped on the OM D E-M5 I could not resist. I had been researching it and found really positive reviews. I wanted something light, durable and would capture the world I see. I was using Canon DSLRs and was getting tired of hiking in the woods/mountains with the heavy system. I do not have that problem anymore. Carrying a camera around is no longer a chore. Thanks Olympus for making this great camera!

My main selling point -- stay with Olympus
I had dithered for years on what SLR to buy. I have an OM-1 film camera that still works today after 30+ years, along with a variety of Zuiko lenses. What sold me on the OM-D -- its light weight, enough features to experiment with and with buying the MF-2 adapter, I can still use my old manual lenses! ((good for the earth, reuse). The pictures have come out great!
