Excerpt: Replaced my Canon 70D with the OM-D E-M1 and am very happy with that decision. The decision was driven by me wanting to take my camera underwater in the near future and I thought the 70D was just a bit too much to handle for that, so I decided to switch over.
Excerpt: The E-M1 provides the best Image Quality and Handling of any camera I have owned or used. IMHO the great reviews and accolades it has received are well deserved. If your prints have dimensions measured measured in the feet or you shoot pictures in the dark then there are better cameras that I have...
Excerpt: Great when it works, but I got bit by the 'rear wheel' not working issue - just Google it. Very aggravating for a supposedly pro grade camera. The EVF glass cover on my E-M5 cracked without warning or cause. Whats going on? Dumb stuff.
Excerpt: I purchased a backup body when B&H ran their special a couple of weeks ago. Doesn't matter the brand, you gotta have a back up if you are making money with your gear. OM-1 is a terrific little camera...lets me get shots I would have missed with other equipment.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I bought my E-M1 mostly for travel. I love how compact it is, the quick focus, ease in tailoring settings to suit my needs and the fact that it is very well made. My only complaint are the manuals which are several levels below the quality of the camera itself!
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I have been using Nikon D7000 with various lenses for some time now. Though the quality of pictures are superb, the weight and handling of the camera was becoming a problem specially with zoom lenses. It was taking a toll on my back.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Great IQ, Great ergonomics and controls and really nice lenses. I want to love this camera but returned 2 of them due to defects. I also have an EM-5 with various problems. Olympus needs to improve on QC or perhaps bring the manufacturing to Japan! Cannot recommend.
Summary: Damn near perfect camera. Absolutely love it. Does more than I could ever imagine. I've had everything from an Olympus E1, E3, E30, E600, E500, EP1, EM5, EPM2 etc ....and this is the best camera yet.
