Problem Solved

From opening the box one can see the quality fit & finish of this camera. While I'm new to Olympus cameras and thus struggle with the flexibility, it is clearly very capable with stunning colors & detail, achieved even by this amateur. My EVF had a problem (color blooms) so it went back to Olympus Repair in NY. The whole process was quick & painless and the problem solved. Thanks to the guys in Hauppauge for turning it around quickly & doing a great job. Now it's up to me to learn all it can do.

Product needs basic instructions clarified.

Instructions are not user friendly. I understand how to manually use a quality 35mm camera, and how to use a dark room. I’m sure your new camera is good but some of the instructions are vague. This is big leap for me to come into the digital age. I wanted a camera that will not impede me as I learn the in’s and out’s of its use, that’s why I chose the Olympus E-M5. Please realize my archaic skills are my base line. I need a tutorial that will walk me through the basics. What is an EVF? It took me a while to find the answer. “Instructions for Idiots” would be greatly appreciated. I purchased the FL-300R remote flash … I still can’t figure out how to make it function remotely. Again, for me, the instructions are vague.
I purchased second battery extension … why no battery with it?? Other than “knock off” batteries, I can’t even get batteries on line. This is like have an auxiliary fuel tank on a vehicle but no key to take off the gas cap.

This is one great camera

This camera has so many features that it is mind blowing. The special features have special features. The fact that it is rain, splash, dust, and sand proof makes it a cut above all other cameras in its price range.
I simply love it.

Powerful, compact.

All the features I wanted in a very portable light weight camera. It's size and weight makes it easy for me to take it with me everywhere.

Small is beautiful!

Great performance in a small package. Excellent low light performance; makes me forget that this is a 4/3 sensor. Highly configurable. Very good lens selection. The E-M5 is my new favorite camera.

If your looking for the best...look no further.

I have researched, compared, and evaluated everything in the Micro class...this is THE ONE, no need to spend your money on inferior equipment. Now you have the tool to make yourself famous...CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH?

very flexible lightweight w/ heavyweight performan

A great looking, nice handling, flexible photographic tool. The OM-D's beautiful retro cool styling is what first grabs your attention, but it's ability to shoot high quality stills along with it's many still and video shooting and imaging options are what makes it a really attractive camera thousands of exposures later. While not perfect, it is a very capable camera, especially suited to street shooting and travel photography. It also has the feel and quality of a much higher priced 'niche' camera with that rugged and beautiful body, the cool and well made accessories like the battery grip, along with beautifully made and sharp prime lenses such as the 12 f2. Well done Olympus. Although similar only in general appearance, the OM-D does bring back that feel that one is shooting with something very special -like using the classic OM-1 film SLR all those years ago.

Fast,reliable and excellent images

This is my 1st micro 4/3 camera coming from an APS-C system. It has everything I want in a reliable, fast and efficient camera that gives beautiful images. The lenses that are available are also very good such as the 45/1.8 and 12/F2.0. I use this camera for family events and find it wonderful for shooting our grandkids. The only problem I have is my wife always wants to use it. I like it so much I have decided to get her one with the 12-50 kit lens.

Extra batery unavailable makes the camera limited

Noise in low light is very noticeable. Camera is solid and built well. Menus are a bit of a challenge but workable. Buttons and dials are small but so is the camera. Great screen and electronic viewer. Price is high for a second camera when you have a lot invested in DSLR system. The software was difficult to instal with many posting on the internet supporting the issues of installing it.
