    Olympus OM-D EM-5 Review – Small and Mighty

    I’ve had the Olympus OM-D E-M5 since November of last year, and it seemed time to do a review. Bought as a replacement for my old Fuji X-Pro1 – a camera that I had a passionate but stormy relationship with – I have to say the Oly is much easier to live with.

    It focuses quickly, has great in-camera stabilisation, delivers quality images even at higher ISOs and has a wide selection of lenses. I’ve happily used it on a couple of paid shoots (in conjunction with my Canon DSLR gear), and it works very well for me as walkaround camera.

    I got it with the 14-42 kit lens (on the basis that I’ll likely not be using it very much), and mainly use the Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 and the lovely Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 .

    Other folks have said lots of nice and useful things about the camera, including Chase Jarvis’ staffer Erik, and Scott Bourne, so if you’re thinking about getting one, there’s lots of good information out there to help – and you can rent one from Borrowlenses.com if you want to try it out.

    I hope you enjoy the review below, and let me know if you have any questions or comments.
