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.......

  • 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

My favorite camera for quick high-quality photos

James T. Decker "los_meatball", Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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
