Summary: I have been shooting the Omd Em-5 underwater and on land for almost a year now and it has not disappointed. Light weight and compact size is great for traveling to destinations where bag size is always an issue. Highly recommend the Omd series cameras.
Summary: This is the camera that I considered good enough to jump into mirrorless cameras. I liked the retro styling, reminding me of my first camera the OM-1n. I love the size, the quality of the pictures and the available lenses for this camera. I did struggle with the ergonmics of this camera.
Summary: This little guy can do some awesome things! The video capabilities are amazing. It is definitely tough, I took it hiking through very dense woods. It came out covered in pine sap and sweat, working like a pro! It is great for a pro photographer to have as a "fun" camera.
Summary: I've used this camera for everything from action sports and night photography to landscapes and portraits and have acquired some pretty great captures in the last couple years. It does everything a full-sized DSLR can do in a much more compact and portable package.
Summary: I preordered my E-M5 when Olympus announced the new camera and have been pleased ever since. Granted this review is after 3 years of pretty demanding use, and it's held up and preformed as promised.
Summary: My first major camera upgrade in years. I already loved my E-PL1 but with almost 80,000 shots taken I knew it was time for a replacement. My heart was set on the E-M5 and what an amazing camera. The setup is great. Tilt screen is ok, but I really do not use it.
Summary: I'm still learning the camera. My only complaint so far is that it sometimes takes a long time for the autofocus to settle in. I bought it to take pictures of wildlife and it's not really doing that good a job.
Summary: I am a longtime user (still) of the OM 35mm System. I indulged in the OM-D, as my initial foray into digital was a bit of a let down. The OM-D E-M5 was easy to start using right out of the box, and I am pleased with the results so far, just using the automatic functions.
Summary: Olympus OM-D E-M5 is a great camera. I got it before last Christmas with a camera&lens bundle deal at less than $1000. I bought it with the 12-50 mm kit lens, which is also a convenient all-purpose lens. I am very new to photography, but this camera is quite easy to get my hands on.
Summary: What a stellar camera. I recently decided to get rid of a handful of lenses for my Nikon DX system (D90) that I've been using for years, because I wanted something smaller. After holding one in my hand and thinking about it for a few weeks, I took the plunge and got the EM-5.
