Summary: Bought this camera as my intro into the M43 world. I had it for 1.5yr. Until the past wknd, I still thought pretty highly of the camera, and I would have given it 3.5. During the wnkd trip to NYC, for my daughter's orchestra's important performance in Carnegie Hall, we found the camera was broken. It has only 5 thousand clicks on it. After a shot the camera spends a few seconds buzzing then shutdown, and the picture was not saved.
Summary: I purchased this camera so I could use other olympus lenses that i have, it came with a small flash attachment that actually makes the subjects darker than with out useing it in Auto mode. The software downloading of pictures is not a one step process as with Cannon or Nike, you have to go through 4 steps to download images and then you have to make sure they are in your picture file before you delete the camera pictures--which you have to do one at a time.
Summary: I ordered a new camera for a new camera price. I got a box from their Return Center. The camera box inside the shipping carton was open and the items not in their bubble wrap. I assembled the camera and it doesn't focus at wide angle. I work overseas and have to use the APO system. Amazon only refunds what they would pay to get it here, not what I have to pay to get it there. So, I'm out money and no guarantee I'll ever get what I paid for.
Summary: I really liked this camera -- until the shutter froze. Twice. From what I can tell, it's junk in VERY cold weather. I shoot in cold weather a lot and I used this camera on an extended trip through Canada. I took the E-PM1 outside often in temperatures between 20 above and 20 below zero Fahrenheit.
Summary: Finger weg davon ! ! ! Habe zweimal eine gekauft, nur verwackelte Bilder, selbst bei hellem Tageslicht. Bildstabilisator so gut wie nicht vorhanden und nutzlos. Menü so klein und futzelig, das man immer eine Brille benötigt.
