Excerpt: I haven't had time to put this camera through all its paces yet, but am pleased with the tests I have given it. I bought the E-M5 (even thoght it is a discontinued model) as a back-up for my E-M1. It is edeal for that use and will provide great flexibility.
Excerpt: I must admit I bought this camera for its looks. It is a stunning thing to look at. It looks just like my Pentax ME Super from the 1980's. I have admired it for years from afar, but now with its recent price drop I couldn't resist her charms any longer.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Useful for any photographer - beginner to Semi-Pro. I use it mainly for landscape photography where I find its light weight to be a great advantage to carry around. Moved from a Nikon D7000 + an array of APS-C lenses to the OMD-EM5.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
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.
Excerpt: I've been looking at MFT cameras for a while as a light-weight option when my full-frame Nikon's are inappropriate. With the release or the E-M5II, the original came at a price too low to resist.
Pros: Great image stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
