Fantastic products.
I've been using Olympus products for some years. Purchased the E-3 new in Japan in 2007; followed by the E-5 used in Japan in 2017. I am was very satisfied with my E-5 paired with either of the Panasonic LEICA D VARIO-ELMARIT 14-50mm F/2.8-3.5 ASPH or the Panasonic LEICA D SUMMILUX 25mm F/1.4 ASPH lenses. But with the recent Getolympus.com promotion buy three lenses, get a free camera, I couldn’t resist waiting any longer. And it paid off. In spades. The m.Zuiko 40-150 F/2.8 is absolutely amazing. I shot as second camera a wedding two days ago using the new EM1X and that lens; the finger roll control on the lens barrel zooming in and out is so precise and smooth; the OIS engages upon press the of the shutter button and when the lens is out at the end of the focal length, the stabilization really helps my unsteady hand, especially as I wait for the shot. The EVF, although only 2.39 million dots, are more than plenty enough dots to get the job done. The periphery vision incorporates nicely within the EVF. This is a true professional camera. Over the course of six hours I shot over a thousand images. Despite the usual redundancy, almost all are in focus and exceptionally exposed. And the images. Wow. So beautiful. I have another wedding to shoot this weekend, and I can’t wait! Knowing the build quality of Olympus, I am confident this camera and these lenses (7-14, 40-150, 300) will serve me for many years of enjoyable professional and family fun photography. In fact, I will be buying more lenses as soon as I pay off my credit card!

Great pro camera! Ergonomics are fantastic, reliability is high, and feature set speak for itself!
I purchased the M1X after shooting with the M1 Mark III for a while. I find that the ergonomics on the camera is just fantastic - - the grip feels great in both orientations, button placement is just where they should be, and all of the camera body functions are optimized for professional shooting. In terms of suitability for pro work, the M1X is built like a tank, able to take the bumps associated with fast-paced shooting, and just keeps on working. The feature set of the M1 cameras speaks for itself - from autofocus to assisted shooting modes (e.g., bracketed modes, live shooting, high resolution modes, etc.) make the M1 cameras an obvious choice for pros and advanced treaties, Highly recommend this camera!!

Functionality at it's best!
This is a phenomenal camera - it works in every situation I've needed it to. The controls are laid out perfectly for my hands and the fact that the placement is identical for both vertical and horizontal shooting is a major plus! (And one of the reasons I chose this model.) The weather sealing is a feature which can not be oversold. I've shot in both heavy rain and in a blinding snow storm in just the first few months I've owned it....and it held up way better in the elements than this old photographer did. For my purposes I can't imagine how this camera can be improved upon but I'm anxious to see Olympus try!

Simply the best camera I own!
I have owned a number of different cameras in various formats over the years, including full frame. The Olympus OM-D E-M1X is simply the finest camera that I have ever had the pleasure to use. The ergonomics and handling are outstanding. Even though the E-M1X is considered ‘large’ by micro four thirds standards, it is extremely comfortable to use for extended periods. I have never seen in all my career a camera that addresses pretty much all photographic situations (high res mode: handheld and tripod, super fast processing with dual processors, live ND, the best of the best weather sealing in the industry, robustness, accurate and lightning fast focus acquisition and the best IBIS in the industry. The 20MP sensor in the E-M1X is excellent and bring about the right balance between image quality and file size. If I need more resolution, high res mode is there to support me. I must also say the the Olympus PRO lens are in a different class as far as craftsmanship and resolution. I own the 17mm, 25mm and 45mm (all f1.2) plus the 40-150mm f2.8 and I am absolutely amazed by the ergonomics and file qualities wide open. I highly recommend the Olympus OM-D E-M1X. It's a piece of equipment that I will keep using in any conditions with pride and confidence.
