Second repair in 60 days

NoMoreOlympus, Bestbuy

  • Summary: I'm so disappointed that Best Buy only offers a 15 day return period, unless you pay to be an "elite" member.

Good value IF it were only $5...

Tom the Olympus Bag Basher, B&H Photo
22 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I just submitted a return merchandise authorization request. What a piece of junk. So much thought was put into the camera and so little thought into the bag. It's an insult to the camera's designers - the Olympus buyers and marketing team should be ashamed of themselves. The construction is a cotton that I would expect to see on an H&M college student cheapo packsack. It doesn't appear to be waterproof or even very resistant.
  • Cons: Bulky, Flimsy Construction, Too big

not real happy

  • Summary: I have owned this camera about 1 month and now it is totally dead. when I turn it on ,nothing happens, so today at a cost of almost $70.00 (including the UPS discount) i shipped it back to Olympus. As i said this camera is less than 1 month old and already it is need of repair, at the least I should have received free return shipping, so at this point I'm not real happy!!

Great while it lasted.

  • Excerpt: My EM-5 died after three and a half months of use. It developed horizontal purple bands in the EVF and LCD that were also present on photographs (?bad sensor). Hopefully this will be resolved by Olympus, but I had to use a backup camera on a recent vacation when this camera failed. Doubly sad because I have purchased multiple lenses for the camera, most recently the excellent 75 mm 1.8.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Short Battery Life

  • Summary: Dont buy this camera and waste your money. If you are buying a mirrorless, buy Canon EOS-M Mirrorless at 48k having an SLR sensor and superior image quality, Better lens, 18megapixels, faster and more..

Worst camera I've ever used! Avoid at all cost!

Viari, Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought the OM-D after reading a couple of positive reviews online. I've been using it for a week and it's the worst camera I've ever used. They really should change its name to the Olympus OMG. Egronomics of the camera is absolutely appalling. It is nothing like the OM series film bodies. The kit 12-50mm lens simply balances horribly on the camera body.

Helligkeits-Flackern beim Video-Zoomen

Eberhard Schlegel, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: Die Olympus E-M5 OM-D ist, wenn man nur Fotos macht, wirklich Spitze. Auch wenn man filmt, werden die Videos dank der Fünfachsenstabilisierung hervorragend. Aber wenn man beim Filmen zoomt, dann fängt die Belichtung während des Zoomens an zwischen hell und dunkel regelrecht zu flackern. Und das stört gewaltig. Ich hielt das für einen Fehler und schickte meine Kamera zwei mal zum Olympus-Service.

Test und Testberichte stimmen nicht überein.

kbumail@t-online.de, Amazon

  • Summary: Laut vielen Tests soll die Kamera bis 1600 ISO brauchbare Bilder liefern. Wer DSRL im APS-C oder KB gewohnt ist mag darüber leider nur Lächeln. Bei mir wird es sich wohl zwischen Sony NEX oder Fuji E1 entscheiden die Beide im Low Iso Bereich klar besser sind. Das Rauschen der OMD ab 800 ISO ist klar zu sehen und für mich nicht brauchbar. Die Menüführung ist ebenfalls für "Frickler". Die Bildqualität ordne ich in etwa den Dsrl Kits um die 600 -800 EUR zu.

  • Excerpt: Крайне расстроен покупкой. В первую очередь из-за не той цветопередачи,что видит глаз.
  • Pros: Куча настроек - хорош тем, кто хочет снимать не только на автомате и вообще научится разбираться в съемке.
  • Cons: "Желтизна"и как следствие неестественность снимков Неудобно лежит в руках Ужасный по качеству съемки объектив в комплекте.
