You get what you pay for

George H, B&H Photo
21 March 2014
  • 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.

Factory refurb had issues.

Catman, Cameta
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This was a factory refurbished camera. It would lose time and date when the battery was changed. Olympus told me I me that I would have to send it in at my cost for repair. What do they actually do to refurbish one ?<br /><br />I returned it for a refund instead.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

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

Elliott, B&H Photo
1 August 2012
  • 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.

Autofocus Issue

Gadget Man "Gadget Man", Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: There is a lot to like about this camera; small size, enormous amount of settings to adjust the camera to your photo shooting preference; water and dust resistant design, etc. At first I really liked the camera and was impressed with the blazingly fast auto-focus.

Not exactly as described and shown

Cal, B&H Photo
13 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Nice size bag and OK (but not exceptional) quality. However, the strap is sewed on and is in no way (short of using a knife) "removeable" as stated above and also stated on the tag that came on the bag. It is certainly not clip-on as shown in the photo.

Great camera when it works...

Mr. C. J. Holden "Chris", Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: Sadly, my OM-D freezes so frequently as to be unusable. Which is a shame, because I'm really happy with the camera otherwise. Hopefully it's just a "dud" model that I've got - I look forward to getting a new one from Olympus and trying again...
