Focusing Issue with Polarizers on Kit Lenses

Swami River, Amazon
20 April 2015
  • Summary: I returned my copy of the E-M1 because the autofocus would not give a correct focus when a circular polarizer (and I tried two different brands of polarizers) was mounted on either of the two 14-42 kit lenses that I have, though the E-M1 did autofocus properly without a polarizer on these lenses.

Good product that is still flawed

Anthony Terrot, B&H Photo
19 April 2015
  • Excerpt: Have 2 of these, the second bought through B&H 15 months ago. This is a very sophisticated little camera that I shall progressively use more often in the future. However: I am disturbed about the EVF problems. Hey Olympus, tell us how to overcome any problems (and sort on future models).
  • Pros: See Penultimate Para, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Evf Problem, No Decent Speedlight, Wifi Interface

Kindle Customer, Amazon
14 December 2014
  • Summary: So I have been using the EM1 for almost three months and about 12k shots....I have to say, a really versatile camera for many uses...the fringe events being high speed action (implying indoor soccer/basketball) and any video (terrible codec, purchased a dedicated camcorder).

OM-D E-m1 - big change from my Nikons

OHcorgis, B&H Photo
24 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted a DSLR to take with me on hikes, events, etc where I did not need to have my heavy professional big bricks. I like the size and weight. But this camera body has a big learning curve for me. It is necessary to go carefully through the manual which comes only in PDF form.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay

Good bundle, but....

Pedro l, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: This bundle was excellent save the camera bag which isn't big enough to hold everything in a practical way and wound up tearing at the seams with only the camera and two lenses. Otherwise I would rate this bundle 5 stars.

A bit over-priced but I like it

thearchitect, Adorama
1 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I've used Oly equipment since 1977, starting with a Trip 35 & ending up with two OM-4Ti's. Then, went Digital with an E-1 & later an E-3. In 2010, being concerned about the future of Oly, I studied my options and went full-frame Nikon with a D700, slowly adding lenses then, in 2012, a D800.
  • Pros: Excellent Stabilization, Generally Good Efv, Good Battery Life, High Quality Construction, High Quality Lenses, Lightweight, Small / Compact, Takes Nikkor W Adapter, Weather-sealed
  • Cons: Efv Blanks Out High Fps, Pricey

A tough call...

AndyX, B&H Photo
31 August 2014
  • Excerpt: For me, this camera was a very tough choice. I still own my Olympus OM-2N (film), and always loved Olympus' innovation. But, I knew my "go to hi-res" would be a Nikon D810. After digging around quite a bit, I'd originally settled on a Fuji X-T1.
  • Pros: Bright Clear Evf, Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Intuitive, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Limited Lens Options

One of the best camera

R. Rana, Amazon
22 August 2014
  • Summary: Olympus OMD EM1 is an awesome camera. I used to be a Nikon guy with D300. i bought D300 for better quality from my friend but hated the size. I wanted a smaller size camera with DSLR quality. I purchased Nikon 1 series camera but was never satisfied with the image quality.

Great little Camera

Bob, B&H Photo
22 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm an advanced ametuer and use this mainly for wildlife and scenery. It isn't a major upgrade from the EM5 but it is easier to use and better laid out than the EM5. With the 12-40mm f2.8 lens it is the perfect walking around camera. Very capibile and light weight combination.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
