  • 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
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Difficult Menu

  • Excerpt: I am taking away one star because Olympus is giving me a hard time to register it. I fell in love with these Olympus cameras after lugging around a heavy DSLR. They do take nice shots.

Lightweight semi-pro. Great product!

  • 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
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Short Battery Life

Great Compact Camera

  • Excerpt: It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be but it's heavy enough to feel substantial. The dials are easily accessed and fit right into the shooting motion.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact

Excellent after I added a few parts

  • 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.

The E-M5 is currently a real bargin

8 October 2015
  • 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
