This camera will never be "old"

SMG, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: Though Olympus has moved firmly into Micro Four Thirds territory ... particularly with their latest release, the EM-1 ... Olympus' flagship DSLR, the E-5, remains an extraordinary tool for the vast majority of photography needs. 12MP is more than enough for 99% of image-making. But the E-5's 12MP are more like 16MP when it comes to the actual resolution potential of this camera. If paired with Olympus' best lenses, the outcome is all that one could hope for in a DSLR.

I am finally back Olympus!!!

Eberardo Romero, Amazon

  • Summary: I hate to admit it but I was a Canikono for a while. My first camera was an Olympus OM-1. It was an excellent camera. As the years went by I went to Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Pentax, Sony, Fuji. For a while I was a Canon buff but there was something a little off. That orange/yellow skin tone. The having to purchase the way too expensive lenses to avoid getting out of focus images. Then one day thankfully my Canon equipment got stolen lol.

Olympus E5

sroc, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I started shooting 4/3 rds with the Olympus 510. I moved up to the E3 for its build quality. I own two them; both refurbished. After about a year with the E3s I decided to buy a new E5 when Olympus had a $200 instant rebate. I really like this camera. I have shot with it in every type of weather: below zero; snow, rain and high humidity. I have fallen with it as I crossed a stream. The camera has never missed a beat. The camera always fit my hand.

User Review

bofo777, DP Review
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I've owned my E5 for two years now upgraded to the 50mm, 14-35, 7-14 and the 35-100 lenses. I have taken all kinds of photos--low light, landscape, macro, sports, portraiture (with soft boxes and speed lights) and this wonderful camera has never failed me. The color reproduction and bokeh of the 2.0 lenses on this camera is truly amazing.

Great camera, well laid out controls, great quality

E. E. Osmann, Amazon

  • Summary: I moved up from my E3 to this camera and was delighted with the increased picture quality. I shoot mainly in manual mode with RAW output as I enjoy the challenge of getting the shot as I see it. I find that using the camera in the mode is much harder than say purchasing a Canon or Nikon and just snapping way in full auto mode to get beautiful pictures, which so many do.

Great camera at a very fair price

eastwoodsantique, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this camera to "upgrade" my Olympus E-3. Like the E-3 (and the E-1 and E-20 before it), this camera with grip is a substantial piece of equipment. I'm not a shooter who wants small & light in my hands & prefer using the OVF rather than the LCD panel. It's buttons & dials are relatively familiar in operation. It's image quality seems to be improved over that of the E-3, which I found was quite good, so I'm pleased with the output.

Huge upgrade

F. Nachman, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I had used an E-410, my first DSLR, for four years. It was the most basic in product line. The E-5 is professional quality, which gives me better low-light shots and improved images.

Great But Expensive

Hermann Guenther, Amazon
1 November 2012
  • Summary: This is indeed a great camera, but much more than I really needed. I just wanted a second Olympus DSLR body as a backup to my E-520. But Olympus no longer makes any other DSLR so I bit the bullet and got this. (The originally much cheaper E-620 is still available online, but for a whole lot more money than the E-5. I can't imagine who in his right mind would buy that when he can get the E-5 for a lot less!

WHY BUY ANYTHING ELSE!!

olympus35100, Ebay
19 September 2012
  • Summary: I have had my E-5 for 2 years and compliment it with my 7-14, 14-35 and 35-100 lenses. I shoot portrait, event, landscape, product and macro photography in studio and outside with pocket wizards with and without flash using light meters keeping my E5 on manual 80% of the time. As you can see I indulge in very complex photo shots and never once have my E5 let me down always works no matter the lighting conditions and pictures are very very acceptable for my clients.
