Classic Look, Great Performance!
I am a previous owner/user of two PEN cameras, the E-PL1 and E-PL2. I liked the E-PL2, but I preferred having a built-in viewfinder, so I ended up moving to another brand of camera. I got reasonably competent with that unit, but I found that big lenses with stabilization seemed mismatched on a small camera body. Recently, I looked at the Olympus brand again, and decided that the E-M5 might be the package I had been looking for. After a month of use, I think I made the right choice. First, the camera is very well built, solid and easy to handle. With stabilization in the body, the lenses are smaller, which makes the camera balanced and less front-heavy. I am finding that I have a steadier hold with the E-M5. Second, I much prefer the focus area identified with a highly visible green frame. With my previous camera, I had a hard time putting the little red auto-focus dot where it needed to be to achieve subject focus. In addition, I find it easier to change focus areas with the Olympus than with the other brand. Finally, I am very comfortable with the Olympus menus and controls. There are a lot of settings, but the combination of control dials, function buttons, and touchscreen means that the photographer can really personalize this camera to suit his or her use. I like the E-M5 for its classic looks, build quality, and sharp, colorful pictures. The only reason for my four-star rating is that, at this price point, Wi-Fi should be included. That is not a deal breaker, though. Overall, I have no problem recommending this camera!

My new camera
I bought the discounted OM-D E-M5 kit and an extra lens, M.17mm f1.8, then took a trip to Europe. I sure do like the camera and both lenses. They are just the right size to travel with and don't weigh all that much. Took some pictures in the rain in Amsterdam with no problem at all. I got my first camera in 1966 and this is my first Olympus and again I love it, all I need is the new f2.8 zoom lens.

Perfect Camera
It is a great camera, AF is very fast, I. Have the M.25mm f1.8 and M.45mm f1.8 lenses and the are great and sharp. So far the best camera I ever had. It is small and handy, good for travelling and street photography. I have the camera nearly a year and no regrets. For me it is the perfect camera.

TOTAL AWESOMENESS!!
E-M5 exceeded well above my expectation! I am so happy with the decision I made. E-M5 fit perfectly in my hand. It took a while getting used to though. It was smaller than I thought but was a good surprise. I hated that cheap plastic feel of DSLR but E-M5's fit and finish was like BMW of DSLR world! Compact and tight yet heavy metal felt just right in my hand! Its compact weather proof body and EVF are the two features that you can't find in other brand, and speaking of EVF, switching view from 3" OLED screen to EVF was flawless. No delay at all. I don't have to carry around those bulky DSLR anymore. I can carry E-M5 anywhere! Highly recommend!

Fabulous Easy to Use Camera
I am just a regular person, love taking photos, have no idea about f-stops etc, but the quality of these pictures are amazing. The sharpness of these pictures is totally amazing, and when doing landscape even the way distant areas are sharp as a tack......Sequential shooting mode, hold on because this baby shoots so fast, and incredible at the results. they are great, and amazing to see birds in flight, or deer on the property running away. My favorite is the built in eye piece, to me should be on all cameras, and the fact that is is water resistant. I like walking on the beach and taking photos of boating etc. This sale price is awesome and with the 5 axis stabilization built into the camera you CANNOT and i mean you CANNOT get better. So go for it you will love it!
