The new King
This could be the perfect camera system. The pro body EM1X is a perfect fit in the palm of your hand. Its lightweight design is a pleasure to hold and the quality of everything is top notch. The camera performs impressively well and can hold its own against the competition, and really is a step above the rest. With Pro Capture and built in Neutral Density filter, this camera system is intuitive and well thought out during production.

Significant Upgrade to the OM System
Prior to buying this camera I was using the OM EM1 MK II, of which I still own. The MKII was a remarkable piece of engineering. Ergonomics were greta, hi-res was well worth the buy in, but the camera's customization and weather sealing is what sold me on the system. The new EM1X has taken this system to the next level. Hand held hi-res has to be seen to be believed. The AF customization is something I've never experienced on any camera. It is brilliant. People complain about the menu system on these cameras, but they are not difficult to master in the least. Read the manual, and the more you use the camera, easier it gets. The dual joy sticks and duplicate button layout for landscape and portrait shooting is one of the great features. Weather sealing is best in class, and the ergonomics are outstanding. It's not a heavy camera, or a difficult one to deploy. Handheld shooting with a 300mm lens is extremely easy and pain free. The i.s. is better then the MKII, the focusing is faster, the menu options are better. The SD card door is significantly better than the MKII. I still use the MKII, and it has become my back up camera, and when I want a smaller footprint in the field. But, without a doubt, I reach for the EM1X at every opportunity. You will not be sorry, and if anything, you'll end up using it more because it makes you want to.

First impressions of the M1X
The body looks big although its slim and light. It feels really good in your hands. The shutter is quiet and everything is very fast and snappy with no lag. The High Res Hand held is amazing. I shot my Ferrari at night with the cars lights on at f8 shutter 10th hand held high res. Perfectly clear and clean with starbursts coming off of every LED light on the car.

Buy this camera or any Olympus OM-D
I received my E-M1X on Tuesday and over the last three days I have pushed my limits on what I thought cameras could do. I made the switch from Nikon to Olympus on the basis on smaller lenses faster shutter speed and being able to handhold a longer exposure. My initial thoughts on this body are: it is by far one of the best laid out and ergonomically pleasant camera I have held in a long time, it ships with two batteries and two chargers so it is ready to impress on day one, it isnt a heavy or awkward camera to field. I am looking forward to pushing this machine to its limits when motocross and the weather improves so I can take it to the beach and test the weather sealing. The 5 axis stabilization works beautifully the built in GPS seems to work well I am still poking at the wifi functionality and remote functions but so far they are a little clunky. I hope this gets resolved or I get better at connecting the devices. If you do not need this kind of beast the smaller brother E-M1 is as capable and reliable camera and was a close second to getting the M1X. Over all this is a very impressive camera and very well thought out. Can't wait to fully embrace the Olympus system.
