Buyer Beware!

Disappointed, B&H Photo
25 September 2014

I hate this camera!

16 September 2014

  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life

You get what you pay for

  • Excerpt: The bag is made with a thin material and loses it's shape making any compartments you make fold to become in-accessible. It would be large enough if it kept it's shape. It is exactly what you have paid for.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Bulky, Flimsy Construction

Olympus Quality

Frank J. DeFelice, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Being a long time Canon and Nikon owner, this is my first Olympus camera. I was impressed with the workmanship and functionality -- mode buttons make sense, the menu was easy to navigate, and the viewfinder design is unique.

Incredible photos, but numerous quality issues too

Trev, Amazon
27 July 2013
  • Summary: I have been using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as my primary camera for about 7 months now, with the exception of the two months it was with Olympus for warranty service. I love the images that this camera produces, the size, the in body image stabilization (IBIS), and the excellent Olympus prime lenses.

A camera that finally realises 4/3s philosophy!

R. Sarma "rssarma", Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: UPDATE (01/26/2015): I'd initially rated this camera at 4 stars purely based on its usability and image quality and I guess my review was premature since it was done in 3 months. Two years and 6 repairs later, I just cannot recommend this camera to anyone that's a working professional.

Incomprehensible

Vand, olympusamerica.com
20 December 2012
  • Summary: I am sure this camera has some great features. However, the MANUAL is comprehensible, the display is too quick, navigation is difficult...I am learning by random selection...have lost some functions while doing so.

Low quality for the price

  • Excerpt: Very cheaply built. Low quality materials. When I tried to adjust the spacer, I was afraid of tearing it down. Ended up returning it even tho I had to pay for the shipping, BOTH WAY.
