Excerpt: I have owned my Olympus OM-D E-M1 for almost two years now. After reading a few of the more current reviews, I am hesitant about buying another backup body. In my first year of ownership I had the viewfinder replaced THREE times!!!
Pros: Comfortable To Handle, Efficient Dial Functions, Not Overly Heavy, Quick Response Time
Excerpt: Make no bones about it - this is a very good and technically advanced camera that will be improved by the new firmware release due in November. However, a new release of its WiFi software is a missed opportunity.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
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.
Summary: it is a nice camera OMD E-M1 classic look, silver (retro) to fun with it and nice good working M. Zuiko"s Lenses (4 lenses that i acquired) that performs well with the M 1. I am not a pro bought a pro cam and optics...Pro wanna be.
Summary: I got my OM-D E-M1 about two months ago now. I have shot quite a few images, and the results come out very good, as expected. When I shoot images with the Art Filters, I keep running into the same problem.
Excerpt: The in camera optical stabilization works very well and the electronic viewfinder helps as one can shoot while holding the camera with both hands and not having to use one hand to point to the subject for focus.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Cons: No Bluetooth To Gps, No Internal Gps, Poor Menu Structure, Short Battery Life
Summary: The EM-1 is my fourth Olympus camera. Previously had an EPL-1 and EPL-3. Still have an EP3 and now the EM-1 which is used daily on a professional basis in a studio. Suffice to say I am familiar with Olympus cameras. The EM-1 is a great camera with good feel. Just amazing. The photos are great.
Summary: Pro photographer (nature, landscape, art). Long-time Olympus owner, as well as other brands, film and digital. Glass I use: M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm (small zoom pancake lens, micro 4/3) M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm (zoom telephoto, micro 4/3) MMF-3 converter for my older full-size 4/3 Zuiko lenses, 12-60mm ED SWD...
Summary: I have used Olympus cameras exclusively since the E-300 came out and I own the E-300, E-3 and Pen. So When the Em-1 came out I jumped in. That might have been a mistake. The EVF is great as long as you are shooting a non-moving object in available light.
Summary: I can't figure out if this pair of camera and lens comes with an Olympus warranty that can be enforced in the US. I asked Olympus USA and here's what they said (I comment within and continue after): "Since April 1, 2004, all digital cameras and accessories sold by Olympus Imaging Corporation have...
