Great camera. I could run through all the stuff ...

Mercedes "Mercedes", Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera. I could run through all the stuff that others have said in reviews but I won't. I'm just continually amazed at what the camera seems to be able to do. A couple of cons that I can live with are: The AF is always working so there is a low whirring when the camera is on. There may be a way to stop that but if there is I can't figure it out. (I have a pen PL5 and there is no noise.); I assume, because of this, the camera seems to use a lot of battery.

Great Compact Alternative to DSLRs

Justin the Fire Guy, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I picked this up as my "travel" camera, mainly because of the great m4/3 lens selection, smaller size and weather-sealing. So far I've been very happy with the image quality and overall feel of the camera. Along with the body I got the 12-40 f/2.8 PRO lens, and while it's a bit heavy and the balance is awkward, the image quality is great. Throw in a few prime lenses (60mm f/2.8 Macro and 75mm f/1.8) and it makes a very small, compact travel kit.
  • Pros: Good Lcd, Small / Compact, Weather resistant
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Complicated Menu System, Short Battery Life

OM-D E-M5 Limited Edition Bundle

Ziad JS, B&H Photo
1 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I went for the smaller size and modularity of the OMD M5 + battery grip + 17mm lens in place of the larger body, better AF speed and EVF of the M1 (for about the same cost). I think I've made the right decision for the time being. The camera body, grip and lens are all well built and exude quality. The amazing built in IS, Sony sensor and Zuiko lens provide great IQ for such a small camera. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Warning Words

Steven, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I have been using my E-M5 now for just over a year. I have to say this camera is superb. Aside from one or two niggling criticisms, this has to be one of the best high-end digital cameras I have ever used (and I've owned many cameras, point and shoot and DSLR). My words of warning though, apply to the novice. Photography Novice (anyone used to shooting solely with a point and shoot), you will face a steep learning curve.

I love this camera !!!

Karl Havens, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: This camera has a major learning curve. At first I hated it, then I wanted to return it, then I started to get the hang of it, and now you could not take it away from me. It is excellent in regard to build, weight and the images are great. The 12-50 mm lens takes fantastic macro images although it is a light hog. I've also enjoyed the fact that with an adapter I can use some of my old SLR lenses on this camera and even a very old German PENTACON 200 mm lens ...

New to Mirrorless

Beechjetdriver, B&H Photo
16 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the OM-D EM-5 for travel photography. It is compact and lightweight but rugged and weatherproof. I found the handgrip to be a bit small for my hand size, so I added the accessory HLD-6 battery grip.
  • Pros: 5 Axis Stabilization, Easy to Use, Fantastic Ev, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Rugged And Handsome Build, Small / Compact, Weatherproof
  • Cons: Complicated Menu System, Poor in Low Light

Fair price, shipped and packed great, arrived on time.

Tony Espinoza, Amazon

  • Summary: Expectations of a Brand new device to be delivered on time were met! Opened box and everything was in its place, charged battery and left next morning for Italy. Picture taking was fabulous, size and weight feel just right, maybe perfect, and rain did not stop us...buy yours from these guys!
