Awesome...I love this camera

  • Excerpt: I'm a wildlife photographer, the 10 fps is super for capturing subjects. Lowest noise of all my Olympus cameras, the onboard video is a real plus for my captures also. I love it's feel, that I can use my 4/3 lenses with the micro 4/3 adapter. Stabilization and focus are superb. I have yet to explore all the other functions available on this camera and can't wait. A super little camera with a lot of bang.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Everything that I wanted.......

Photog Guy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am a Canon Dslr user but needed something smaller during family events' etc. and where it's more convenient not to pull out a "Big Gun". So far I love what I've shot. Never having an Olympus, the controls were pretty easy to figure out quickly. The EVF is fantastic and I am able to make adjustment quickly which is important as I shoot manually primarily. The hand grip gives it a great "Feel" as that was one of my concerns, being small and with an uncomfortable feel.
  • Pros: Colors Are Fantastic, Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

The best camera!

  • Excerpt: It is a very practical, stylish, practical camera. In 20 years I never had a camera that meets all my needs. His perspective is great and is silent. I use it to do documentary photography and video for web. Simply excellent.

A sophisticated little machine

  • Excerpt: I sold all my Nikon equipment to buy this and lenses due to a bad back. Understand, I'd been shooting Nikon since the F and 35, 50, 85, 105 and 135mm lenses and MF primes where all there were. I shot both DX and FX and loved the pictures. However, weight and price got the best of me as I aged. When I read the reviews of the EM-1 I went to B&H to have a look at one. They let me try it with a 25mm f/1.8 lens and I was hooked.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Almost excellent.

Mesal, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Great sensor. Feels solid and well made. Love the autofocus, very quick even in the dark with the 2.8 12-40 lens. Excellent photos in both RAW and JPEG. Great color rendition. Fantastic low light performance even at high iso's. Only problems are the battery which discharges very fast after some use, but the indicator showing a full charge.I need a second battery. The other problem is with the instructions. Not clear on some features, for example the panoramic photos.

My favorite camera for quick high-quality photos

  • Summary: This isn't a Nikon D800e or a Canon EOS 1D, but - truth is - for many photos you might be very hard pressed to find much difference. Is it a 'pro' camera? I don't know, but for many people it can be. You can get results that are good enough for much professional work I believe. It is very easy to manipulate and a variety of lenses that produce excellent results are available.

Exactly what I waited for!

Frederico Ferrari, B&H Photo
12 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I patiently waited for the release of this Oly E-M1. It contains all of the features that I had hoped for and then some.I must admit that it demands a bit more of a learning curve than the average micro 4/3 kit, but its worth the time and effort.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Average Camera Strap, Complicated Controls

Excellent tool - annoying few flaws

Anthony Terrot, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Not since I owned two OM1s have I enjoyed just holding a camera so much. While enough has been said of the lengthy learning curve (I'm nearly there and its worth it), I am finding it becomming really capable alonside five high end Canons, important as airlines seem to progressively hate excess baggage. I have two EM-1s, the first bought in an emergency, the second from B&H. So the reservations: 1 - The micro Pro lens line up is taking a long time in developing.
  • Pros: Build, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Image Stablization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: 3rd Party Flash Interface, Third Part Flash I-face, Wifi Interface
