Excerpt: Purchased as a supplement to E-M1 which is very superior in just about all respects, but lacks .MPO (1920x1080 3D) capability. With E-M5 no additional lens is needed. E-M1 has time lapse which E-M5 doesn't, and that feature and relative ease of one-hand shooting tipped balance to E-M1 as the initial...
Pros: Easy to Use, Fairly Fast Af, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Have Several M 43 Lenses, Large Clear LCD, Mpo Stereo Images, Multi-axis Stabilization, Small / Compact
Cons: Buttons Not Easily Felt, Transformer Power Cost
great camera when small size and weight are a priority

Excerpt: After years of hiking with a Full Frame body and primes I decided to finally try out a small mirrorless and purchased the EM5 on the most recent sale. It's cheaper than a point and shoot at this time so what the hay. So far so good. I enjoy the viewfinder.
Excerpt: Got this as a personal camera, work with Canon DSLRs normally. Love the weight, feel. menu takes a little getting used to. go for a prime or different lens, didn't love the kit one it came with.
Excerpt: I work with a 5D most days, but in personal life I've got no interest in carrying that bulk around. EM-5 has solid image quality, EXCELLENT video stabilization, and reasonable for the price. I'd say pick up a different lens, don't love the kit lens it came with. Needed to unlock it is unappealing.
Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Lens Mount, Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Love the clarity of the pictures. Still getting to know the camera, trying to get to know the menu and the options. It's hard to find them when I want to find a specific one. I have an Olympus 14-150mm lens that I keep on it due to it's versatility. I'm not a fan of the 14-42mm range.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I just picked this up as I plan to use the Olympus system as my personal cameras for travel in the future. Last two trips to Alaska, I left my Nikons at home because they're so big and bulky that a week in Alaska visiting family is just too much for air travel. The lens is okay.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: Ah! Olympus! I love this name and it's products! I have four Olympus Cameras and many lenses next to my Fujis and Sonys! and I love to have more Olympus maybe a EM5 II or waiting for EM1 II with 4K. Olympus knows how to make real Cameras with some of the best innovations in Photography!
Excerpt: I am not a pro, aspiring to be, but I digress. I bought this as I have friends who are serious enthusiasts and thought that I'd join them. I shoot some portraits of my family and street photography.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I've never had a camera with interchangeable lenses before, so there is a big learning curve. The pictures aren't as crisp and clear as the ones I've seen on an em10, but they do blow up really well, before they loose focus.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
