Pretty good small camera
On a whim, I bought a camera that I could hope to get into sporting events where "pro cameras" or "pro lenses" weren't allowed. Not too impressed with the tracking autofocus, single point seems to be more accurate. Image quality is pretty good (I own the 14-42mm, 45mm and 75-300mm). However, you have to keep the ISO down, as the higher ISOs , normally above 1600 are not the best quality. Its not going to replace my DSLR on paid shoots, but it met my expectations. I've never been turned around at a sporting event (crossing my fingers) out of 5 tries (fits in my pocket!). So I'm able to get shots at games, which is what I needed. I decided to get a 2.8 medium telephoto to keep the ISO reasonable...its in the mail. OH, I don't do much video, but shot a few of my kids...pretty good stabilization and quality.

Great Camera fun to use excellent pics.
I have a Stylus -1 which is a great little point and shoot and because I enjoyed it so much I purchased the E-M10 which I find a joy to use. I bought the E-M10 with the standard 14-42mm lens and found it to be fun to use and nicely customizable. I bought all 3 Sigma 2.8 DN primes to go with it as well as the Panasonic 45-275 zoom and a Rokinon 12mm f2.0. Next purchase will probably be the Olympus 25mm 1.9 or the 45mm 1.9 (probably both at some point). I now also own the E-M5 Mark II but I won’t be parting with my E-M10. I have repurposed 2 of the Function buttons. One I converted to the magnification function – especially useful for manual focusing with my old tired eyes. The 2nd button I changed to the electronic zoom feature doubling the range of whatever lens is attached. The only drawback here is you can’t use the zoom magnification feature then go to the electronic zoom you have to shut off the camera and go back to it. You can go from electronic zoom to magnification however. Using the camera I put the Olympus grip on it right away because that is the feel I was looking for and it fits great in my hands. I normally have it set in Aperture Priority and large fine as my standard. I also wove a Para cord quick disconnect (on the Camera’s strap loop) that links to a para cord survival bracelet I made so it is a quick lock in and sets the camera up perfectly for 1 hand shooting. I put a second buckle on the opposite side and matching buckles on the neck strap so I can quickly shift to that carry option if I wish.

Outstanding camera
I'm thrilled I got this camera: it's small, beautiful, the image stabilization is game-changing, the image quality is wonderful. I bring it with me everywhere, and am capturing photos that I've never captured before. With the integrated Wi-Fi, I never use my smartphone camera anymore. Awesome.

Fantastic camera.
I decided to dive into the m4:3 ecosystem after my APSC Sony DSLR broke in the way back from vacation. I sold off all my 2 fast zoom lenses and flashes. My main reason for choosing the m4:3 system was it's smaller form factor, value, and quality. The EM-10 is a phenomenal camera. Build quality, control, button customization, and photo quality all exceeded my expectations. It's fun to shoot, easy to travel with, and is easily one of the best cameras for the dollar. I am disappointed with the noise levels at ISO 1600 and up. It produces the same amount of noise that my old a35 did at ISO 800 and that's on a much older camera. By no means is it a deal breaker, but if you mainly shoot RAW then make sure you have a good noise removal tool. I did consider looking at the lineup at Fuji but I found the cost of their lens lineup to be to expensive where as Olympus seems to have some if the best glass at extremely competitive prices. I would buy this camera again in a heartbeat especially direct from Olympus. I live in Canada and we don't have a lot of choices to buy from. I snagged the body with the a lens for an unbeatable price. One last thing, unless you have very small hands make sure to buy the grip. I have long fingers and without the grip there isn't enough camera to hang onto comfortably.

A fine, small camera
It's a back-up to my incomparable E-M1 but it bows to no one. Very small, light and flexible it is a great travel and vacation body that can lift heavy weight when it needs to do so. Is a leftover E-M5 a better deal? Probably, but, they are hard to find and dwindling fast. This is a very capable little machine.
